    In the question mentioned above, if the house is owned by the deceased and his heirs include a wife, a son, two daughters and the parents of the deceased have already passed away, then all the property of the deceased person including the said house will be divided into thirty-two parts. Out of total, his wife (stepmother) shall get 4 shares, 14 shares shall go to the son while each daughter shall get 7-7 shares. The detail of Shariah division is as follows:



    Wife:        1x04 = 04

    Son:         1x14 = 14

    Daughters:2x07 = 14


    Total:                    32
