My father passed away back in 2001, may Allah bless his soul and Jennah ferdos.

His parents, my grandparents passed away long before. We have my mother and 2 males (myself incuded) and 2 females as his children. How should the inheritance been divided according to Allah (swt) who is the provider and sustainer of everything?

  • For clearing that we need more information: Did your father have siblings etc. there are many people involved in inheritance matters! – Medi1Saif Jul 29 '17 at 20:49
  • No his siblings were all older and passes away before. – 0tyranny 0poverty Jul 29 '17 at 23:09
  • @Medi1Saif Would a sibling get inheritance in the presence of sons? – UmH Jul 30 '17 at 12:35

    @Uma honestly it has been some 20-25 years since i studied inheritance at school.At the time i was very fit and could solve difficult issues, but since i've never dealt with it again i have no clue. – Medi1Saif Jul 30 '17 at 12:40

If your father has no other spouses or children, and his parents died before him, and any debts and wills have been settled.

Your mother gets 1/8th since she has children:

Quran 4:12 And for the wives is one fourth if you leave no child. But if you leave a child, then for them is an eighth of what you leave, after any bequest you [may have] made or debt.

The presence of a son among children blocks farther relatives. The remainder is divided among the children so that a son gets twice the share of a daughter.

Quran 4:11 Allah instructs you concerning your children: for the male, what is equal to the share of two females.

So, your mother would get 12.5% of the total, you and your brother would get 29.16% each and the sisters would get 14.58% each to sum to a total of 100%.
