In the question mentioned above, if the property of your father has to be divided then all his property shall be divided into 48 shares. Your mother (the widow) shall get 6 shares, 14-14 shares will go to each brother and 7-7 shares to each sister. The detail of Shariah division of the property is as follows:

Wife: 1x06 = 06
Sons: 2x14 = 28
Daughters: 2x07 = 14

Total: 48 shares
