And in his bank in Pakistan he’s got in pounds roughly £190,000. Currently his wife is alive. He has 2 sons one daughter. He has 3 brothers. Everybody else like his mother his father are passed away. Please tell me how much goes to each person after his death?


A: We assume that 490 000 is the total assets’ worth and it will be divided into 40 equal shares and distributed as follows:

Wife will receive 5 shares

Each son will receive 14 shares

Daughter will receive 7 shares

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
