Inheritance – 1 wife, 4 daughter and 2 sons

Shortened Question:

Can u please calculate the shares


I have a question on sharing our family property.
Property details :
It is a complex which comprises of two houses and four shops.
Family details :
Mother, four sisters and two brothers including me. My father had passed away.
My contribution :
The complex land was bought by my father 25 years back. With the grace of Allah, I had given 50% of money for building the complex 10 years back and provided monitory assistance(3 Lakhs) for my 2 sisters and brother’s marriage.

My Brother’s contribution:
Physically helped in building the complex with the help of an Engineer. Helped in running my father’s business and went overseas after the marriage.

Now the rental from the property is used by my mother.
My Brother’s family and my mother are staying in my house and I am working in overseas and my family stays with me.
Please guide us in sharing the family property.
JaZakallahu Khairan.



In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

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.
