- I wanted to ask a question regarding inheritance. My father wrote a will many years ago , he has since passed away a few years ago and now only we are selling his house which is his only assett left to 2 daughters (me and my sister ) and 2 sons (my brothers). In the will it states me and my sister should each recieve 1 8th share each and my brothers and my brothers 3 8th shares each. This would mean my brother get triple our share. I know according to shariah my brothers should get double and not triple and im not sure if my father made a mistake or it was intentional as he was a practising muslim. So should we split the shares according to shariah or according to his will as i want to do the right and dont want my father to get the sin of distributing his asset wrongfully.
- Our father died leaving behind four sons and two daughters. He left us with no will. The property is to be divided among us. Do the daughters too have a share in the agricultural and commercial lands? Is there a law restricting the daughters to share only in certain properties?
- I had a question related to inheritance. My step-father passed away a month ago leaving behind my mother, his real daughter, his brother who is deceased and was from the same mother but different father, and another brother, again who is deceased from same mother but different father. I and my brother are his step children; my mother married my father and that is the daughter they have. As far as we are aware there are no other family connected with my father. Please advise on how his inheritance will be calculated.
- Assalaam Alaikum, A Man dies leaving behind a wife and two daughters from the wife.He has left behind him some self aquired property. After his death , his brother’s sons ( bhatijay ) have demanded a share from the property,even though their father, i.e.; the deceased man’s brother died much before him. Earlier, during the deceased man’s lifetime, these nephews demanded a share in his property claiming joint ownership of the business between their father and the deceased man.However, the same was rejected in a court of law , by virtue of proofs,evidences and records. Is this claim , now,by the nephews, allowed?,even after the death of their father? Are the nephews entitled to any share of the inheritance from their uncle’s ( deceased man )property in the absence of their father? The deceased man did not have any liking for them during his lifetime as they embroiled him in unnecessary and unwanted legal controversies. Your answer in this regard shall be highly appreciated.
- It will be a lengthy question but it is necessary for its nature. A couple (my khala and khalooo) had six children, one son (eldest) and five daughters. One daughter is mentally distorted. The father MF died when youngest daughter was not matured enough. The second last daughter was disabled. The four elders decided and transfer the house in the name of mother by signing an agreement on stamp paper. Keep in mind they ignored the last two daughters and they have not signed any agreement. The house came under the name of Mother. The mother beacame paralysed and only youngest daughter was serving her in all means. The two other elder daughters are married and settled with their families. They were not having good contacts with mother and others. In the meantime the third daughter was also expired leaving behind a son. The last two daughters were living with mother in her home, as mentioned one is disabled and youngest was serving both mother and disabled sister in all means. In next move the sons insist mother to give his share from the house. He said that if it will not be done then he will now allow the marriage of the youngest sister in the house and start making trouble. He was pressurizing mother and he prepared the paper and took half portion of the house and transferred it in his own name. That means mother transferred the half portion in her son?s name. Now half portion left in the mother?s name. Then youngest daughters marriage took place. She lived with her husband in mothers house to take care for her and also to take care of disabled sister. Now the son is…
