Inheritance: husband, sons, daughter, brother & sisters


A woman died and left behind a daughter and two sons, husband, brother and five sisters. How to distribute the inheritance?


The sisters and the brother are obscured (from the inheritance) due to the presence of the children.
The husband inherits a quarter (of the wealth).
And what remains from the wealth, then as has been mentioned, a daughter and two sons, they divide it according to how Allāh has mentioned:

(لِلذَّكَرِ مِثۡلُ حَظِّ ٱلۡأُنثَیَیۡنِۚ)

“To the male, a portion equal to that of two females”
[Surah An-Nisa’ 11]

As for the brother, then he remains obscured due to the presence of children.
