The default ruling is that a Christian child should not inherit from their Muslim father. Is this correct? Has any Ulama written otherwise?
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
The general and default ruling is that Muslims do not inherit from no-Muslims and vice versa.
We have not come across any ruling from the scholars of Ahlul Sunnah wal Jamaa’ which contradicts the hadith of the Prophet (s.a.w.) that states,
Only Allah knows best
