Q: My mother passed away during my maternal grandmother’s lifetime. My grandmother passed away 1 year ago. She is survived by 2 sons and 1 daughter. She owned some agricultural land (my maternal grandfather bought it during his lifetime and did not leave any will). Do we, as her grandchildren, get any share in property?
A: In the presence of the children (the two sons and one daughter) the grandchildren will not receive from the inheritance.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
