Question: How to do property distribution among brothers where apparently nothing is left by their father? Note: The property is earned while working together.
In the above mentioned case, if your grandfather left only his four sons and four daughters as Shariah heirs then his property including the house shall be divided into 12 shares, after paying due rights preceding inheritance. Out of the total, 2-2 shares shall go to each son and 1-1 share shall go to each daughter.
In order to reply you regarding other property except the grandfather inheritance we need some clarifications: Who bought those properties and from which income?
If there was any joint business of all the brothers and those properties were bought from the income of the joint business then was the share of each brother equal or different in the joint business?
Was the joint business started by all the brothers with their personal income or with the inheritance income? In short, provide the detailed information regarding these properties, then in-shaAllah, we shall write the reply.
Allah (Subhana Wa Ta’ala) knows Best
