Question By : Nasir Khan

Our is a sunni family, with seven surviving members (Five married daughters & Two married sons),

My both parents died, around 3 & 5 years ago, and they left us, an old house at a city in India (Current value is around total eight lakhs)

The said property is completely one entity only, which my late father had solely purchased by his own earned money.

So pls. advice me, how to make the final inheritance settlement among all the siblings for this case, in accordance with the shariah laws.

Awaiting for your valuable response,

Dear Brother in Islam, the statement made in the above-mentioned question indicates that the inheritance of your parents has not so far been distributed amongst the inheritors. Therefore, it is necessary to mention the death period of your parents and name the members were alive at that time, in order to make final inheritance settlement.

And Allah knows the best,
