    (Fatwa: 33//11/SN=1/1442)


    If your grandfather and grandmother died before your deceased father then in the question mentioned above whatever your deceased father has left behind, shall be divided into 48 shares after paying due rights preceding inheritance. Out of total, 6 shares shall go to his wife i.e. your mother, 14 shares to son and 7-7 shares to each daughter. The Shariah division of the property is as follows:



    Wife:           1x06 = 06

    Son:            1x14 = 14

    Daughters:   4x07 = 28


    Total:                                48 Shares
