Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
She died and left behind a husband, four sons, five daughters, a full brother and a half-sister through her mother. How should the estate be divided?.

Answer:
Praise be to Allaah.

If a woman dies and leaves behind a husband, four sons, five daughters, a full brother and a half-sister through her mother, the estate is to be divided as follows: 

The husband gets one-quarter, because there are children. Allah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning):

“In that which your wives leave, your share is a half if they have no child; but if they leave a child, you get a fourth…”

[al-Nisa’ 4:12]. 

The rest goes to the children, with each male getting the share of two females, because Allah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning):

“Allaah commands you as regards your children’s (inheritance): to the male, a portion equal to that of two females”

[al-Nisa’ 4:11]. 

The full brother and the half-sister through the mother do not get anything. 

So the estate is to be divided among their heirs: the estate should be divided into 52 equal portions, of which the husband gets 13, each son gets 6 and each daughter gets 3. 

And Allah knows best.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
