1. Yes, the daughter of the first wife will also not inherit anything since she died before her father.

2. Second wifes portion will only be divided between her sons and daughters in the proportion of 2:1 for the male:female. The first wifes children do not inherit from the second wifes property.

Allah Knows Best!

A couple of remaining points I would like to ask:
1. One daughter from first wife passed away before Grandfather died. So does this mean that she will also not inherit anything?
2. Since second wife inherits 1/8 share, will this be divided equally among all sons and daughters or will it only be given to the sons and daughters of the second wife and if so, in the same 2:1 ratio or simply 1:1?

Thank you once again. Jazak Allah khair.

Regards, Usman

All inheritance shares of a deceased must go to the respective heirs as prescribed by the Qur’an and explained in the Authentic Hadeeth. What the individual receipients choose to do with their shares is entirely up to them after they receive it only.

Allah Knows Best!

Can a man leave his son’s share to a foundation that the sons control, such as a family foundation, or must it be left to them outright and free of trust or other conditions? Can you please direct me to any additional authority on the subject? Thank you!

First, your Grandmother has no rights on your Great Grandmothers property since she passed away before her. Hence none of her children or grand children will also inherit from yor Great Grandmothers property.

At the time of her death your Great Grandmother has 2 sons and 5 daughters (since one daughter, your Grandmother, was already deceased)

So the distribution of your Great Grandmothers property will be as follows:-
[Assuming that her parents and her husband was not alive at the time of her death]

2 SONS = 4/9 share (Each Son gets 2/9 share)
5 DAUGHTERS = 5/9 share (Each Daughter gets 1/9 share)

Total = 4/9 + 5/9 = 9/9 = 1 (whole)

Allah Knows Best!

A believers inheritance is based on what he or she owns at the time of death. When it comes to household goods, furniture, and other domestic appliances, the ownership rests on whoever who purchased them. Whatever your Mother earned during her lifetime is entirely hers and no one has any claim to it for running the home or even supporting the family, which is the sole responsibility of the Father. Whatever she may have given of her own free will is entirely by her choice only for whatever reasons of her own. If the house is legally owned by your Father then no one has any claims to it except him and his inheritors. after his death.

Allah Knows Best!

May Allah guide all of us in achieving all what is required to please Allah. The Sri Lankan Muslim expatriates living in Toronto is an example and has rose to the demand and initiated the steps required to build the bridges across our own community and others. May Allah help and guide them all the way. May Allah reward all those who planted the seed to achieve this and give those who are presently involved the light to see what is right and what is wrong and give them the courage to act by what is right which will please Allah.

I would like to know what was my mothers possessions. my Mother use to work but my father told her to give up her job and look after the children, so my question is, where did this leave her? the things he bought for the house was this my fathers? or did he have verbally have to say or in writing state that he gives this to my mother. the other thing is the house is on my father’s name. and the house they bought after they got married. i asked my mother once why the house is not on her name and she said that she doen’t want the house to be on her name so was this hers or not? My step-mother is making statements that everything is my fathers. please clarify this kanallah, according to Quran and Sunnah (Shaariah). May Allah forgive All All Praise and Thanks is To ALLAH

Siblings are entitled to inherit only in the absence of MALE ascendants (Father/Grandfather and upwards) or MALE descendants (Son/Granson and downwards).
