    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 71/54/M=2/1442)


    If your father is no more and your mother is also not alive and the heirs are only you and your four sisters, then the property left by your deceased father shall be divided into 6 shares after paying due rights preceding inheritance. Out of total, you (brother) shall get 2 shares, while each sister shall get 1-1- share. And if the case is something else then you may write it clearly and submit the question again. The Shariah division of the property is as follows:




    Son:            1x2 = 2

    Daughters:   4x1 = 4


    Total:                           6         Shares
