    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 849/672/B=1434) If your father died leaving behind only you three brothers and five sisters and there is no other heir, then all the property left by your father shall be divided into 11 shares. Out of which 2-2 shares shall go to each brother and 1-1 share to each sister.
