Would you kindly inform me how to work out a shariah will

Question:

Assalamualaikum w.w.

Would you kindly inform me how to work out a shariah will. I know that the wife gets 1/8, husband 1/4, sons 2 shares and daughters 1 share but unsure how to work it out, i.e., from the whole amount or ???????? Please see questions below:-

1) How would one work out £100,000.00 if there is a wife, 5 sons and 2 daughters, how much would they get each?

2) How would one work out £350,000.00 if there is a wife, 6 sons and 1 daughter, how much would they get each?

JazakAllah khairan, may Allah SWT reward you abundantly.

Answer:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

In the first scenario, the inheritance would be distributed as follows:

1) Wife: £12,500

Sons:£14,583.33 Each

Daughters: £7291.67 Each

In the second scenario, the inheritance would be distributed as follows:

2) Wife: £43,750

Sons: £47,115 Each

Daughters: £23,557.70
