Q: I wanted to ask a question regarding Islamic will as my dad wants to write his will. He currently has two properties, first one in uk which is on my father’s name and the Second one in pakistan which is on both my parents names. Alhumdulilah both my parents are alive. We are 4 brothers and sisters, i.e. 2 brothers and 2 sisters. 3 of us are married and my younger brother is single. Elder brother has 3 children (2 daughters and 1 son). The rest have no children. Can you please guide us on how the wealth will be divided amongst everyone. Who will receive a share and who won’t?
Wife will receive 6 shares
Each son will receive 14 shares
Each daughter will receive 7 shares
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
