    Question: I am MA Rukshaar, daughter of late Mohamed Aslam. My father passed away before declaring a WILL on his assets (Referred above). So I request you to kindly advise how to distribute the assets of my father as per the Islamic Law. My father late Mohamed Aslam has 2 wives, Mrs Farida Begum (first wife age 50 years ) and Mrs. Shakila (second wife aged 40 years). Mrs Farida Begum has a daughter (myself named Rukshaar M.A ) and Mrs Shakila has no children. Also my father’s parents were deceased and no other brothers and sisters and no other blood relations for him. So I kindly request you to issue a Fatwa letter stating how to share the assets amongst we three legal heirs as per Islamic rights. (1) Farida Begum (1st wife) (2) Shakila (2nd wife) (3) MA Rukshaar (daughter of 1st wife)

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 498/498/SD=09/1436) In case the question is correct and all preconditions of inheritance are fulfilled, the property of Muhammad Aslam shall be divided into 16 shares. Out of the total each wife shall get 1-1 share while the daughter (Rukshaar) shall get 14 shares. The detail of Shariah division is as follows: Details: Wife (Farida Begum): 01x01=01 Wife (Shakila): 01x01=01 Daughter (Rukshaar): 14x01=14 Total: 16 Note: The answer shall be valid only when no one among the male children of father’s brother, uncle, grandfather, great-grandfather is alive. If someone is alive then explain it and submit the query again.
