Answer


ASSALAMUALAIKUM W.W. I HAVE A WIFE AND 3 DAUGHTERS AND NO SONS, HOW IS WHAT I LEAVE BEHIND DIVIDED.

الجواب حامداومصليا

The wealth of deceased (husband) will be divided among the heirs according to the following shares:

Wife: 1/8

daughters: 2/3

mother if alive: 1/6 or 1/3 after the share of spouse

Father if alive: 1/6

The total wealth will be gathered and if there are any outstanding debts on the deceased they will be paid first and thereafter any dues related to the funeral and burial will be paid from the wealoth before distribution among the heirs.

And Allah knows best.
