بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 490/457/M=5/1441)

If none among the parents, grandfather, grandmother, and Nani of the deceased person is alive only the said heirs are alive then in such a case all the property of the deceased person shall be divided into 48 shares after paying due rights preceding inheritance. Out of total eight share i.e. 6 shares shall go to the wife while the son shall get 14 shares and each daughter shall get 7-7 shares. If the parents etc. of the deceased person or anyone among them is alive then ask the question again. The detail of Shariah division is as follows:


Wife:               1×06=06

Son:                1×14=14

Daughters:       4×07=28

Total:                                     48
