sharing of inheritance in Islam
The beauty of Islam In relation to inheritance.
Do you know that in Islam, if a man dies, and is survived by the following heirs:
* A male child
* A female child
All of them will inherit from his estate? Do you also know that their respective shares have been stipulated in the Qur'an, a document that is about 15 centuries old and has never suffered any interpolation or distortion?
Here is it:
Assuming he left a total estate valued at 48million naira (or in any currency for that matter), each heir shall be entitled to the following sum:
* Father = 1/6 of 48million = 8million
* Mother =1/6 of 48million = 8million
* Wife = 1/8 of 48million = 6million
Total = 22 million.
Balance = 26 million
* Son and daughter to share the balance of 26million in ratio 2:1.
* Son = 17.33 million
* Daughter = 8.66 million
Evidence: Qur'an 4:11-12
Now, share the above estate according to your religious book, or culture, or civilisation, and provide appropriate evidence where this provision was made.
Alhamdulillah for Islam!
