A woman has a right to inherit from her parents regardless if she is married or not


In some towns people believe that a girl has a right to inherit from her father, but no right to inherit from her mother if she (the daughter) was married.

What’s your advise on this?

May Allah benefit them by way of it.


This is due to ignorance of the religion of Allah. For verily a girl inherits from her father and from her mother, wether the girl is married or not.
