Inheritance of late husband’s car

My husband recently passed away and is survived by myself (wife), both his parents and 7 brothers and 3 sisters.
He leaves behind £8000 in his bank and a pension from work, the amount yet to be confirmed. He also bought a car on finance, which had £4000 remaining which I have cleared using his money.
According to the Sharia law, how is the money distributed?
Does the car fall under the inheritance distribution?
If not, who inherits the car?

Inheritance land issue

Land / house issue

Asalamo alaikum
After listening to the talk on inheritance I would appreciate if you could shed some light on this issue we have .

Grandparents passed away leaving 3 sons and 3 daughters , 5 of them were married and settled only one aunt lived in the house she was never married or had any children . There was a dispute once asking aunt to leave but she had no where to go . Nothing was done about the property or the small piece of land after that.
Two of the uncles and the single aunt also passed away .
So now the family want to sort out the inheritance according to the your talk
I’m understanding the children of the deceased brothers do not inherit . So that leaves 2 aunts and 1 uncle who inherit ? One of the aunt also mentioned the same which caused some unpleasantness in the family .
My other question should they have asked the single aunt to leave ?
Jazakallah kair

Inheritance of 7 daughters and 1 sister.

Assalamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu.
My late grandfather had 7 daughters and 1 sister. He had some lands, some of which he had given to his daughters during his lifetime. But the ones he didn’t give to anyone, how is the inheritance calculated between them all?
Jazakumullah Khair in advance.
WaSalaam.

Inheritance

Assalamoalaikum
Since my husband is not in favor for me to do any job during his lifetime and even after his death, he wants to make a WILL. My husband wants if anything happens to him than all his assets goes to me so that I can be financially stable to raise a special need child and to take care of myself. He is ready to give all to me during his lifetime too. Please advice us that is it allowed in Islam and how to do it in a way as not to become a sinner.
Also, if I die before my husband than I want that all my assets goes to my husband and all jewelry is divided equally between both sons.
The reason me and my husband wants to do this is because of our special needs child and the person who has to look after him ( either me or my husband )
May Allah accepts your efforts and give rewards in both of the worlds…

Distribution of inheritance and debts

Assalam-u-alaikum Brother,

Jazak Allah Khair for your very beneficial talk on inhertiance issues.

I wanted to ask if the inheritance is divided after deducting the expenses due on the deceased due to loans, taxes, qada salah and rozas and funeral expenses etc.? or these expenses are deducted from 1/3rd of the total assessts of the deceased and the rest is divided as per the sharia.

In my will, I have mentioned that all above expenses due at the time of my death should be paid from my assets first and then the remaining assets should be divided. 1/3rd of the remaining go to charity and 2/3rd to my inheritors. I wanted to confirm if this is right.

May Allah reward you in abundance

Selling house whilst living in the house

Assalam Mualaykum,

In the inheritance talk by Mufti Adbur Rahman Mangera, he talked about a permissible method of transferring a house to one’s son whilst both are still living in the property. The suggestion was to sell the house for a token amount. Would the authorities need to be notified of this sale, as putting a price on the property would complicate the process and incur additional charges?

Currently, my son and I have a 50/50 share with both of our names on the deeds. I wish to make him the sole owner.

Can we change the names on the house deeds as one activity, and then sell the house as a transaction separately, or do both things need to happen at the same time?

Jazakallah Khairun

Inheritance related questions

Assalaamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu.

I pray you are well.

I have a few questions relating to death and inheritance.

1. If a man has 4 daughters, a wife and a sister, are they all inheritors? Would the sister be asbat?

2. If a woman has a husband, 5 daughters and a brother, are they all inheritors? Would the brother be asbat?

3. is a person allowed to state that the money they give in their lifetime MUST be used for a particular purpose? EG, this £100 is to be only used for your wedding or £300 to go towards umrah etc. Chances are those things may never happen.

4. If a will is made and is contrary to Islam, is it permissable to revoke the wishes of the deceased?

5, if the deceases has missed many salah in their lifetime, would it be incumbent on the heirs to pay this off? How would they go about doing this?

May Allah reward you for your efforts in answering and continue to use you all for the khidmah of deen

Shukran

My grandfather have 11 children. My grandfather passed away in 2013. He did not shares his property equally among his sons. My father did not get anything. some property have not yet share. Should they share the remaining property among them or they should give my father share and then share the remaining property.
