If husband and wife pass away together in Inheritance

CategoriesInheritance [120]


What happens to ones inheritance if in the unlikely scenario the husband and wife were to pass away together?


In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.




In the aforementioned scenario if some persons die together and they are related to one another and it cannot be established who died first, then it shall be presumed that all of them died together. In such a situation one cannot inherit from the other and the property of each of them would be given to his or her heirs.
