Inheritance Laws: Xeer and Diin

Postby AbdiWahab252 » Tue Apr 23, 2013 9:46 pm

So how do the laws work saxiibyal in this case.

CASE # 1 - An old man leaves his property to his 6 kids: 4 sons and 2 daughters. I know that the daughters get half what of the sons get. However, what happens to the children of say one of the sons ? Do they get their father's portion of the inheritance ? Would the granddaughter get half of what the grandson would get ? To make this more interesting, who has more rights to the inheritance:

1. The male grandchild of the Marxum (the Marxum's son's son)

Or

2. The male grandchild of the Marxum (The Marxum's daughter's son) - Would he get only part of his mother's inheritance ?

What factor does qabiil play ? Does the grandchild who comes from the same qabiil as the Marxum get more ?

CASE # 2 - Your Eedo or Adeer leaves an inheritance. Who gets first rights to it ? Is it her/his immediate siblings and if so, does belonging to the same Bah count more ? If none of his/her siblings are alive, do her/his cousins get more rights to it than say his/her nephews ?

Jazakallah,

Abdiwahab Jimcaale

If he leaves boys and girls, the boys get twice what the girls get. :whew: If he leaves two or more girls alone(no boys), they get 2/3 of what he's left. If it's just one girl and she has no brother, she gets half of what her father left behind. If both parents are alive and he had left children, they each get 1/6 of what he's left. If he left no children, but he has left ONLY 1 sibling, and both parents are still alive, the mother gets 1/3 and the father is assumed to receive the same. But if the deceased left more than one sibling, then the mother goes back to taking 1/6 only.


That's only after two things have been accomplished: All debts of the deceased has been paid, and he last wishes has been carried(regarding what he's left behind).


Don't know if I have that right.

inheritance is a sensitive issue but regardless somali's deal with it according to sunnah.

you make a good point about the bah preference, i wanted to know if it is islamic or not? i mean fullblooded siblings have more rights than half right?
