(Fatwa: 1530/B-322/TB=1432)

Up to the death of the father whatever income was in his inheritance it shall be divided among brothers, sisters and mother as per the Shariah. After that when mother became the owner of newspaper then whatever income will come from it mother shall be its owner. If mother gives income to her one son, she also should give her other sons and daughters equal income. If one brother has his share in the profit of newspaper with his mother, what kind of partnership it is? We shall write its reply after getting the detail.

Allah knows Best!
