⚫A woman inherits less than a man?
Yes she does. A woman can also inherit more than man? yes she can.
And sometimes they inherits in equal share.
Talking about depriving women of inheritance, the modern Bible has deprived the right to inherit except in the case of being not male, the daughter does not inherit from her father except if he has no son.
In the book of Numbers 27:8👇
“If a man dies and has no sons, then you shall pass the inheritance to daughters”
🕋ISLAMIC VIEWS ON INHERITANCE OF WOMEN
God is a fair judge
His injustice is absolute
And your Lord wrongs no-one” (al-Kahf: 49)
Difference in inheritance is according to the following conditions not to gender
1. The degree of kinship to the deceased
2. The generation to which the heir belongs
3. Financial Responsibility
the male is responsible for the financial upkeep of his wife and children
💐💐💐Many facts are revealed by reviewing the following cases and issues of inheritance:
1. There are only four cases where a male inherits double the share of a female.
2. There are many cases where a female inherits a share equal to that of a male.
3. There are more than ten cases where a woman inherits more than that of a male.
4. There are cases where a woman inherits a share, but the man inherits nothing.
🚦👉💐Islam outlines 34 situations of inheritance
🕋FACTORS OF HOW THE INHERITANCE IS SHARED AMONG THE HEIRS
1- Relationship between the deceased and the surviving relatives,the closest receive more.
2- Position of the Heir, (the new generation who’s ready to start life and shows responsibility receive larger share in most cases.
3- The financial responsibilities of each Heir, and this is particularly of important consideration.
👉Under Islam a Man has more responsibilities than a woman and the responsibilities are not shared by the woman.
1- He pays the dowry to his wife .
2- He looks after wife and children even when his wife is rich. Indeed a fair distribution of Rights and Duties. It is worth knowing that no human system has ever established a law under which women were guaranteed to be looked after by men in all situation.
🕋Islam the system given to Us by the Lord of Mankind has a different outlook. Under Islam a man is to maintain his mother, wife, daughters and sisters when she they have no father and no husband.
⚪⚫In a man made laws, women are required to earn their own living. When a woman loses her father and husband then she must look after her children and that’s a heavy responsibility that breaks the back of many women. She’ll not be able to fulfil the maternal responsibility to satisfaction.
Islam.. compassion of religion gives a woman a fair share of inheritance and requires a man to ensure that she’s well looked after.
One question that needs to be put in front of evey woman who has been deceived by the Media is
So them “which legislation do you prefer”
Humanly made or Godly?
💐🗣Cases Where Women Have a Share Equal to Men
1. If the deceased leaves a father, a mother, and a son’s son.
2. If the deceased leaves a uterine brother and sister.
3. If the deceased leaves full sisters, and uterine brothers and sisters.
4. If the deceased leaves a daughter, brother or the nearest residuary [‘Asabah] to the father [with no one to exclude anyone from inheritance].
5. If the deceased leaves a father, a maternal grandmother and a son’s son.
6. If the deceased leaves a husband, a mother, two uterine sisters and a full brother. According to ‘Umar [raa], two uterine sisters and full brothers share one third equally.
7. A man or a woman is entitled to the whole estate in cases where he or she is the sole heir. For example, the son inherits the whole estate as a residuary, while the daughter inherits half as a sharer and the remainder by the method of Radd [return]. In another example, if the deceased leaves only a father, the father will inherit the estate as a residuary, and if the deceased leaves only a mother, then she inherits a third as a sharer and the remainder goes to her by the method of Radd [return].
8. If the deceased leaves her husband and a full sister, her sister inherits the same as the male. If the deceased leaves a husband and full brother, the husband is entitled to half, while the remainder goes to her brother as a residuary. If she leaves a husband and a sister, then the husband has half and the sister receives the remaining half as well.
9. If the deceased leaves a uterine sister and a full brother. If there is a husband, mother, uterine sister, and a full brother, then the husband is entitled to half, the mother is entitled to a sixth, the uterine sister is entitled to a sixth, and the remainder [one sixth] is given to the full brother as residuary.
10. Dhawul-Arham [distant relatives] which is applied under Egyptian Law in Article 31 of Law no. 77 in 1943. If there are no sharers or residuaries, then the distant relatives are the heirs. In this case, the estate is divided among them equally. For instance, if the deceased leaves a daughter’s daughter, a daughter’s son, a maternal uncle and a maternal aunt, everyone will receive an equal share.
11. There are six people who are never fully excluded from inheritance: three men and three women. The three men are the husband, the son, and the father, and the three women are the wife, the daughter, and the mother.
💐🗣Cases Where Women Inherit More Than Men
1. If the deceased leaves a husband and one daughter.
2. If the deceased leaves a husband and two daughters.
3. If the deceased leaves a daughter and maternal uncles.
4. If a woman dies leaving $60,000, and the heirs are her husband, father, mother and two daughters, the share of the two daughters is $32,000, where each inherits $16,000. If the deceased leaves two sons instead of two daughters, then each son inherits $12,500, because the two daughters inherit two-thirds as sharers, while the two sons inherit the rest as residuaries.
5. If a woman dies when her estate is worth $48,000, and she leaves a husband, two full sisters, and her mother, then the two sisters inherit two-thirds of the estate, which is $12,000. If she leaves two brothers instead of two sisters, each brother inherits only $8,000 because they inherit the remainder of the estate after the husband and the mother receive their share.
6. Similarly, if she leaves two paternal sisters, they inherit more than two paternal brothers.
7. If a woman dies leaving a husband, a father, a mother, and a daughter and her estate is worth $156,000, then the daughter inherits half of the estate [i.e. $72,000], but if she leaves a son instead of a daughter, then he would only inherit $65,000 because she inherits as a sharer while he inherits as a residuary. Sharers are given their share first and then the residuaries.
8. If a woman dies leaving her husband, mother, and full sister, and her estate is worth $48,000, then the full sister inherits $18,000. But if she leaves a full brother instead of a sister, then he inherits $8,000 because he only inherits as a residuary, whereas the sister would inherit as a sharer, like the husband and the mother. In this case, the full sister inherits more than double the share of a full brother.
9. If a man dies when his estate is worth $48,000, and he leaves a wife, mother, two uterine sisters, and two full brothers, then the two uterine sisters [who are the furthest relatives of the deceased] inherit $16,000, or $8,000 each, while the two full brothers inherit $12,000, or $6,000 each.
10. If a woman leaves a husband, uterine sister, and two full brothers and her estate is worth $120,000, then the uterine sister inherits one-third of the estate, or $40,000, while the two full brothers inherit $20,000. Thus, the uterine sister [who is the furthest relative of the deceased] receives a share which is four times that of the full brother.
11. If the deceased leaves a father, mother, and husband, according to Ibn ‘Abbas, the husband inherits half, the mother is entitled to one-third and the remaining one-sixth goes to the father. The father here inherits half of his wife’s share.
12. If a woman leaves a husband, mother, uterine sister, and two full brothers, and her estate is worth $60,000, the uterine sister inherits $10,000 while each brother inherits $5,000. This means that the uterine sister’s share is double that of the full brother, even though she is a more distant relative to the deceased than him.
13. If a man leaves a wife, a father, a mother, a daughter and his son’s daughter when the estate is worth $576,000, then the share of his son’s daughter is $96,000, whereas if he had left a son’s son instead of a son’s daughter, the share of his son’s son would only be $27,000.
14. If the deceased leaves a mother, maternal grandmother, and paternal grandmother, and the estate is worth $60,000, then the mother inherits one-sixth as a sharer and the remainder by the method of return [radd]. If the deceased leaves a father instead of a mother; meaning a father, a maternal grandmother, and a paternal grandmother, then the maternal grandmother will inherit one-sixth or $10,000 and will not be excluded. $10,000 and the reminder [$50,000] is given to the father. The mother inherits the whole estate [$60,000] while if the father assumes her position he will only inherit $50,000 which means that she inherits more than him.
💐🗣Cases Where Women Inherit and Men Do not
1. If a woman leaves her husband, father, mother, daughter, and son’s daughter and her estate is worth $195,000, then the son’s daughter inherits one-sixth [$26,000]. However, if the woman leaves a son’s son instead of a son’s daughter, then his share will be zero, because he is a residuary who would inherit the remainder but there is no remainder. This distribution is different from the law of obligatory bequest applied in Egyptian Law No. 71 of 1946, which contradicts the Islamic Schools of Thought. Here, I mean the authentic schools that maintain that women inherit in some cases, while men do not.
2. If a woman leaves a husband, full sister, and paternal sister and her estate is worth $84,000, the paternal sister inherits one-sixth, or $12,000, while if there is a paternal brother instead, he will inherit nothing. The husband will inherit half of her estate and the full sister will inherit half, and the remainder [i.e. nothing] goes to the paternal brother.
3. The grandmother in many cases has a share in the inheritance while the grandfather does not. By viewing the rules of inheritance for grandparents, I have noticed the following: a grandfather who is related to the deceased from the father’s side, such as the paternal grandfather or the paternal great-grandfather, whoever is closer to the deceased, have no share in inheritance while the maternal grandfather or maternal great-grandfather also have no share in the inheritance. The grandmother, who is entitled to inheritance, is the one whose relation to the deceased does not include a grandfather, who is not entitled to inheritance, or if she is the grandmother whose relation to the deceased does not include a father between two mothers. Thus, the mother of the mother’s father is not entitled to inheritance while the mother of the father’s mother is entitled to it.
4. If the deceased leaves a maternal grandfather and maternal grandmother, then the maternal grandmother inherits the whole estate and takes one-sixth as a sharer, in addition to the residue by the method of return [radd], while the maternal grandfather inherits nothing, since he is a disinherited grandfather.
5. It is the same when a man dies leaving a maternal great-grandfather and maternal great-grandmother. The maternal great-grandmother inherits the whole estate, because she inherits one-sixth as a sharer and the remainder by the method of Radd, whereas the maternal great-grandfather inherits nothing since he is not entitled as a grandfather.
Thus, there are more than thirty cases where a woman inherits the same as or more than a man, or where she has a share and he does not. In contrast, there are only four cases where a woman inherits half the share of a man. These are the results of examining the cases and issues in the law of inheritance. I think that this misconception is now clear
