Trade-mark is Part of the Inheritance

My father was a partner with six people in a company and when he passed away, all the assets of the company were estimated and distributed equally among them according to the ruling of  Sharia. However, some heirs demanded the price of the trade-mark for themselves. Are they permitted to demand compensation for company’s trade-mark?

It is Permissible to Take a Compensation Against the Harm Resulting from Negligence

In Europe, it is allowed for a woman to undergo a diagnosis for her embryo during the first months of pregnancy to check whether it has Down`s Syndrome, or not. Actually, a woman gave birth to a baby that has been diagnosed with Down`s Syndrome, so she filed a lawsuit against the hospital for not running that test in the early stages of her pregnancy. As a result, the court ruled that she gets a certain amount of money as a compensation. Is it permissible for her to take that money?

When the Right of Shuf’ah (Pre-emption) is Claimed, Property is Taken for the Same Price Determined in the First Sale Contract

I have sold three shares of a common land to three different individuals for a certain price. The clerk conducted the sale transaction, but registered an unreal price to cut down the registration fees. Six months later, my partners filed a preemption suit and demanded buying the three shares at the price registered in the sale contract although it isn`t the actual price. When I talked to them, they insisted on paying the price stated in the sale contract although they are pretty sure that it isn`t the actual price with which I sold the land. What is the ruling of Sharia on this?

Some Rulings of Nursery

I have divorced my wife ,who is a Canadian national, an Arab by birth and a Muslim by faith- and since an Islamic court gave her the right to custody and gave me the right to visitation and overnight stay, she took that verdict and presented it to the Canadian embassy to prove her right to custody. This results in many rights in light of the Canadian Law since it doesn`t recognize the father`s right to guardianship over his children. Could you clarify the rights and obligations of the person who has the right to custody and guardianship?
