# How should Rs (INR) 1244400 be distributed among 3 brothers and 2 sisters according to Islamic law?

My name is Dr M N Hoda and I have some questions regarding money distribution of my mother. She is expire and left the Rs (INR) 1244400. So I want to know from law of Islam (Shariah) about money distribution. I am three brothers (all are available) and two sisters (all are available) and the amount of distribution is Rs (INR) 1244400. So how it shall be distributed? Please solve our problem and send a fatwa (in a letter form) on my address. I am very thankful to you.

(Fatwa: 551/L=226/TL=1434)

In the case mentioned above, if at the time of your mother’s death none among your father, nana, nani was alive then the property of your mother shall be divided into 8 shares, after due rights preceding inheritance. Out of the total, 2-2 shares shall go to each brother and 1-1 share to each sister. And the money shall be divided in a way that each brother shall get Rs 311100 and each sister shall get Rs 155550. The detail of division is as follows:

Details:
Sons: 3×02 = 06 (311100×3=933300)
Daughters: 2×01 = 02 (155550×2=311100)
Total: 8 (1244400)
