    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 487/456/M=5/1441)

    In the question mentioned above the property left by your elder brother (land, money in bank etc.) shall be divided into 27 shares after paying due rights preceding inheritance. Out of total the wife shall get 3 shares, father and mother shall get 4-4 shares while each daughter shall get 8-8 shares. In this case the brothers shall get nothing. The detail of Shariah division is as follows:


    Wife:               1x3=03

    Father:            1x4=04

    Mother:           1x4=04

    Daughters:       2x8=16

    Total:                                    27
