A widow has 1/3rd of the house(owned by her father-in-law (deceased)who was present at the time of nikah and has his signature on the nikahnama and now will be distributed among his children) written in her haq mehar.Now her husband is Dead, so does Sharia and law allows her to take 1/3 of the house written in her haq mehr as well as her husband's share of the house (she has children both girls and boy) since her share written in the haq mehar is from the whole house and not from the husband's share. So will the haq mehar needs to be separated before the division and distribution of the house among the father-in-law's children (father died first and son later)?? What is the ruling of Sharia and law for this??
