Question # : 32927

India

Our father died leaving behind four sons and two daughters. He left us with no will. The property is to be divided among us. Do the daughters too have a share in the agricultural and commercial lands? Is there a law restricting the daughters to share only in certain properties?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم


(Fatwa: 1097/923/B=1432)

There is no such Islamic ruling that the girls shall get their shares in particular property. The girls shall get their shares in all kinds of property like boys. Hence whatever property your father left behind, after paying due rights preceding inheritance, shall be divided into 10 shares; each son shall get 2-2 shares and each daughter 1-1 share.
