Whose reponsibilty it is to look after the mother

Q: What are the rulings according to shariah of a son looking after his mother after his father passes away. In this situation there is 2 sons an 1
daughter but only 1 son is married with 2 kids an the daughter with 3. Bear in mind the father didn’t leave anything for the children only for the mother. So how does one look after wife an dchildren + mother an siblings?


A: All the children should look after the mother.

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