بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 233=232/D)


If the deceased has left behind only the persons mentioned above then his tarakah (property/wealth) will be distributed as under. But, if his parents or any of them was alive when he died then the ruling will be different. If the later is the case, then you must ask the question again.


At former condition, all the property and wealth of the deceased (after due rights preceding inheritance) will be distributed in ninety six (96) shares; out of which 12 shares will go to wife, 14 shares to each son and 7 shares to each daughter.


Wife:                    12

5 sons: 14x5=      70

2 daughter: 7x2=  14

Total:                  96

Allah knows Best!
