Question:


Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah


can the father or the mother or if none of the parents are alive then the legal heirs of a son and daughter distribute the leftover wealth as per their wish or impose their decision on one who does not agree for equal distribution who wants his share as per sharia.


Can the mother change the law of inheritance and distribute equally to boys and girls?

It is binding upon the distributor to accurately divide the inheritance as per how the Shariʿah dictates. No one is able to change these shares. If a person voluntarily gifts their portion to another, that is fine.
