    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1290/1161/L=11/1439)


    If at the time of your father’s death none among your dada and dadi (paternal grandfather or grandmother) likewise at the time of your mother’s death none among your nana and nani (maternal grandfather or grandmother) was alive then all the property of your deceased parents will be divided into four shares. Out of the total, 2 shares shall go to the son and each daughter shall get 1-1 share. The detail of Shariah division is as follows:


    Son:                  1 x 2 = 2

    Daughters:        2 x 1 = 2


    Total                      4        shares
