Will I Inherit?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Mahmoodiyah



My mum passed away two years ago, I am her only son from a previous marriage, she was married and has a son and two daughters and my step dad. Do I have a claim to the house she left behind. What are my rights as the eldest son, given that she left no will,.





Yes, according to the law of inheritance in Islam you will have a share in the estate of your deceased mother.

The house of your mother should be valued and divided into 8 shares (provided her parents have passed away during her life time) which will thereafter be distributed as follows;

2 shares will go to her husband (your stepfather).

2 shares to each of her sons (you and your stepbrother).

1 share to each of her daughters (your stepsisters).

And Allah Ta’ala knows best
