What will be the share of wife in husband property worth 850,000?

There are four sons and a daughter and widow as his heirs. Deceased has no brother or sister nor are his parents alive.


بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.




It will be one eighth.[1]

So the distribution will be as follows:-

Widow- 9/72 shares.

Daughter- 7/72 shares.

Four Sons- Each son will receive 14/72shares.

Total= 9+7+56 (14×4) = 72 shares total.


And Allah SWT alone knows best.
