Q: A person passes away with three sons who inherit 33.33% each. Does this mean that they get ownership of 33.33% of each item? Or does it mean that they get full ownership of 1/3 of the items? If so, how is it decided which son gets which item?


A: They will have ownership of one third of every item.

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