    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 416/J)

     

    After the due rights preceding the inheritance, the entire property of the dead person will be distributed in 8 shares; out of which the wife will get 1 share, each son will get 2 shares and each daughter will get 1 share.

     

    1 wife:               1

    2 sons:             4

    3 daughters:      3
