Inheritance of 7 daughters and 1 sister.

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Assalamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu.
My late grandfather had 7 daughters and 1 sister. He had some lands, some of which he had given to his daughters during his lifetime. But the ones he didn’t give to anyone, how is the inheritance calculated between them all?
Jazakumullah Khair in advance.


If your grandfather did not leave behind any other relatives such as a wife, parents or sons then the inheritance will be distributed as follows:

7 Daughters will receive 2/3 of the inheritance i.e. 66.66% divided equally between them. 

1 Sister will receive 1/3 of the inheritance 33.33%.
