I was proud to be involved in constructing the Jaffna Railway Station in early 60s as Assistant District Engineer and later as District Engineer under the famous Chief Engineer N A Vaitialingam. Three years ago when i visited the devastated Railway Station I was in tears and today I am much pleased and thankful to Allah and to all concerned to see the the structure, the platforms including the cantilevered roof and the track back in action.

Comment on Considering Alternatives to the Animal Sacrifice? Reflections on Eidul Adha & Udhiya : by : Bina Ahmad & Fatima Ashraf by ifthikar hassen http://www.sailanmuslim.com/news/considering-alternatives-to-the-animal-sacrifice-reflections-on-eidul-adha-udhiya-by-bina-ahmad-fatima-ashraf/#comment-15428 Tue, 14 Oct 2014 02:03:45 +0000 http://www.sailanmuslim.com/news/?p=14333#comment-15428 A very thought provoking and insightful notion. This type of reasoning and understanding the essence of the religion is what we need in this time in order to bring about a renewalism or revivalism in the practice and understanding of Islam in its true context that is relevant for the times. Islam is by its nature a dynamic and living faith that embraces practical life,moderation and rationality.If we can only learn to shed dogma and be people of understanding then surely this great faith will see people coming towards it in hordes.

Comment on Inheritance According To Islamic Sharia Law – by Fazli Sameer by fazli sameer http://www.sailanmuslim.com/news/inheritance-according-to-islamic-sharia-law/#comment-15388 Mon, 13 Oct 2014 09:02:38 +0000 http://www.sailanmuslim.com/news/?p=636#comment-15388 Response to Basel who wrote on Sep 15 2014

We have to take the case of your Grandfather first. On his passing away, he was survived by your Grandmother (his wife) your Mother (his Daughter) and three Uncles (his Sons)

So, the distribution of his wealth and property should be as follows:-

WIFE (Your Grandmother) = 1/8 share, Remainder = 7/8 share

3 SONS = (Your maternal Uncles) = 6/7 of 7/8 = 3/4 share (Each Son gets 1/4 Share)
DAUGHTER (Your Mother) = 1/7 of 7/8 = 1/8 Share

Total = 1/8 + 3/4 + 1/8 = 8/8 = 1 (Whole)

Next, the case of your Grandmother. When she died she left behind a Daughter (your Mother) and 3 Sons (your Maternal Uncles). So their shares are as follows:-

3 Sons = 6/7 Share (Each Son gets 2/7 Share
1 Daughter = 1/7 Share

Total = 6/7 + 1/7 = 7/7 = 1 (Whole)

The Will of your Mother is not valid under Islamic Shariah Law as the shares of her Sons and Daughters are already prescribed by Allah i the Qur’an. Unless you are able to enact this will through legal means in the country where you live this will has no bearing under Islamic Shariah Law. If your Grandmother had wished, she could have transferred that portion of her share to your Mother while she was alive and this would have been perfectly legal.

The Youngest son’s share has to be distributed to his wife (who was still married to him at the time of his death) and his children who were alive then.

Allah Knows Best!

HUSBAND = 1/4 share, Remainder = 3/4

2 SONS = 4/7 of 3/4 = 3/7 Share (Each Son gets 3/14 Share)
3 DAUGHTERS = 3/7 of 3/4 = 9/28 Share (Each Daughter gets 3/28 Share)

Total = 1/4 + 3/7 + 9/28 = 28/28 = 1 (Whole)

Allah Knows Best!

FATHER = 1/4 share
4 SONS = 3/4 share (Each Son will receive 3/16 share)
All CHILDREN of a deceased get the same share irrespective of whether they are married or single.
STEP MOTHER does not inherit from your Mother.

Total = 1/4 + 3/4 = 4/4 = 1 (Whole)

Allah Knows Best!

Let me start by saying that this is an amazing, in-depth and informative article.

I am in a very odd situation and would be ever so grateful if you could help me with my problem. I have a grandmother (father’s mother) who has no parents. She had two children (a son and a daughter) both of which passed away. She has six sisters.

What are the islamic laws when it comes to inheritance in this case? I mean is there any way that she can gift the entirety of her assets and properties to someone else? Am I even entitled to anything given that my father passed away? Also on a side note: does she have any responsibility in paying for my expenses, education and living?

Thank You!

When my grandfather passed away he left no will, hence my father and his siblings divided the his property amongst themselves based on sharia. My father wants to give up his inheritance in favour of my aunts and uncle.
As a grandson , do I have a right to claim inheritance from my grandfathers property even though my father is still alive and is it legal for my father to give away his share of the inheritance without his children’s consent?

Thank you,

salaam to you….

A question is always in mind ,ie. WHY CAN NOT MAKE A LAW TO ESTABLISH JUSTICE WHEN THE PARENTS , WHILE THEY ARE LIVING , SHARE PROPERTIES AMONG CHILDREN AND FORBID THEM FROM GIVE AWAY MORE PORTION OF THEIR PROPERTIES TO WOMAN THAN MALE IN A MANNER THAT WILL CAUSE MALES IN GREAT PAIN , POVERTY ,HARDSHIP ,FRUSTRATION AND DISHARMONY ?
