According to Madhhab:
passed away and he left behind the following heirs:
How will his wealth be distributed among the heirs?
Some of the relatives are saying the mother gets 1/3 whilst others are saying
1/3 after giving wife her share.
The wife gets 25% of the entire estate. The mother receives 1/3 after allocating the share of the surviving spouse; that means she will receive 1/3 of 75% which is 25%. The remainder of the estate (50%) goes to the father due to being a residuary. The brother is deprived due to the presence of the father. This gives us a total of 100%.
AND ALLAH TA’ALA ALONE IN HIS INFINITE KNOWLEDGE KNOWS BEST
