بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم


(Fatwa: 2071/B=1668/tb=1431)

All the property shall be divided into 12 shares; out of which 2-2 shares shall go to brothers while 1-1 share to each sister. The fifth brother and his children shall be deprived.

Brothers: 4x2=8
Sisters: 4x1=4
Total Shares: 12

Note: The answer is correct when it is meant to divide the mother's inheritance. If the property of father is to be divided, then submit the question again and write whether the fifth son died before his father or after him?
