الجواب حامداومصليا

If mother and father were not alive at the time of death of their son, they will not get any share from inheritence.

All of wealth will be divided among the children and spous in accordance with the Islamic law of inheritence. The daughters if they are two or more will get 2/3 and half if only one.

Wife will receive 1/8 regardless of number of children.

Assuming that the total wealth left by the deceased after subtracting all necessary expenses of funeral etc... is 11,000 then about 7334 would be given to the daughters if they are two or more and 1375 will be given to the wife.

And Allah knows best.
