We are eleven 4 brother & 7 sister. I have three questions:-

1. I bought share of one of my brother and now the value of the property has gone up and so is the value of share, he is asking for more money, is he admissible for it?

2. As my eldest brother took 20,000 from my mother as part of his share, what will be the share of distribution as my mother has expired and now the property is being sold to give everyone their share?

3. All my brother left my mother alone and we sister were taking care of her and most of the items for house use were given mainly by me and some by my other sisters, now what will be the treatment of these things?

Please give us your answer so we can perform the distribution as per the property as per the guidance of Allah?

Your Sister

When every a person dies his property is distributed amongst his family.The laws of inheritance are different for sunni and shia. Under both of these sects first the quranic shares are given to father, grandfather, husband, wife, mother and daughter. There is no quranic share for the son. The son always gets twice that of the daughter. So the ratio is 2:1. Under sunni law the male descendants or ascendants are given preference .

This means that if the propositus dies leaving behind a daughter and a brother, the daughter would receive her quranic share and the rest of it would got to the brother. In shia law however there is a class system. The people in the first class override those in the second class. The daughter is in the first class and the brother in the second class. So in the same situation the daughter would take everything overriding her uncle.

Therefore under the shia sect the male is not given preference. Even the daughter's daughter would outweigh the brother of the deceased. This is the basic difference of how the property is distributed under the two sects.

Different countries of the world have different means and methods for the distribution of property among the inherited persons but Islam being the best religion of the world gives proper rules and regulations for this purpose. You have questioned that can you explain how property is distributed according to Islamic shariah can be explained in the following manner.

Islam through its great book Quran and Sayings of Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) have clearly narrated the laws and rules of distribution of property among the inherited people. According to Islam male members means sons get double share as compared to girls while father gets 1/10 of the property and mother gets 1/8 of the property. Specific reasons are there for this distribution system and there is great wisdom hidden in it for the people who understand it. Though other religions may conflict to this system but in my opinion this is the best distribution system of property in the world. This system has deep benefits for the mankind and it can be regulated very easily in our daily life routine.
