Q: How will the distribution of the estate be made in the following two situations?
1. The estate will be divided into 40 equal shares and distributed as follows:
Husband will receive 10 shares
Each son will receive 6 shares
Each daughter will receive 3 shares
2. If the deceased was not survived by any spouse, children or mother, the entire estate will go to the father. The siblings do not inherit in this case.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
