Q: My question is about inheritance according to Islamic Shari’a law. I have a stepmother who has no kids, I have one brother and one sister. What would be the inheritance share from a deceased man in case of two sons, one daughter and wife (our step mother) who has no kids. Our mother died long time ago.
Wife will receive 5 shares
Each son will receive 14 shares
Daughter will receive 7 shares
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
