    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1104/1117/M=9/1434) If your grandparents also have died and your father was survived only by your mother and you three sons; then you should distribute the rent of the house or price of the house in case you sell it in 24 shares. Out of the 24 shares, the deceased’s wife (your mother) will receive 3 shares and each of three sons will have 7-7 shares. Details: Wife 1x3= 3 3 Sons 3x7= 21 Total: 24
