    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1260/1232/N=11/1437)

    If the deceased person has left behind only one wife and three sons and he did not leave any daughter, father, mother, grandfather and grandmother then all his property (all property and cash) shall be divided into 24 shares, after paying due rights preceding inheritance. Out of the total, his wife shall get 3 shares and 7-7 shares shall go to each son. The Shariah division of the property is as follows:


    Wife:                1x03 = 03

    Sons:                3x07 = 21


    Total:                           24 Shares
