It should be appreciated that brothers, sisters,
stepbrothers and stepsisters are not entitled to any share of the inheritance
when children and parents of the deceased are alive. In case of death of any of
the couple, the property will be disbursed according to the following order:
i. any liability of the deceased and any will he has left
will be discharged first;
ii. shares of the parents and the spouse of the deceased will
be paid from the remaining amount according to the shares stipulated by the
iii. one half of the remaining property will go to the
iv. the remaining portion of the property will go to the
nearest male relative.
The only difference that occurs when both die is that that
there would be no spouse to receive the share and the property will be
distributed starting from the parents down to the point (iv.) as explained
above. Please note that the above division has been done on the basis of the
research work of Mr. Javed Ahmed Ghamidi, a contemporary Muslim scholar.
