Mīrāth Calculation


If a deceased person leaves behind 1 wife, 1 son and 3 married daughters, how much share does each heir inherit?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم


Assuming neither parent is alive, the shares of the heirs are as follows:

Wife: 5/40th – 12.5% (1/8th)

Son: 14/40th – 35%

Each daughter: 7/40th – 17.5%

Allah knows best
