    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 234/192/L=2/1439)


    If both the wives of your uncle are alive and none among his parents was alive at the time of his death then all the property of your deceased uncle shall be divided into 80 shares, after paying due rights proceeding inheritance. Out of the total, each wife shall get 5-5 shares, each son shall get 28-28 shares, while the daughter shall get 14 shares. The detail of Shariah division is as follows:


    Wives:                          2 x 05 = 10

    Sons:                2 x 28 = 56

    Daughter:          1 x 14 = 14


    Total                   80        shares
