According to the Islamic Law of Succession and Inheritance, distribution of an estate will only commence after funeral expenses, debts (including legal costs) and bequests (if any) made to non-heirs – which will not exceed one-third(1/3) of the Estate after debts and funeral expenses have been settled. Thereafter, all assets form part of the Nett Estate and will have to be distributed according to the Islamic Law of Succession and Inheritance.

 

We have been advised that the deceased is survived by a wife, son and 2 daughters. Accordingly, the estate will be distributed in 32 equal shares as follows. If the deceased was also surviving by both or one of the parents or any other heirs not referred to in the question, the answer will not apply.

Daughter 7 21.875%
Total 32 100%
