salaams Mufti Saheb


My beloved son passed away in a hi-jacking incidence in Lenasia on 28.07.2008.

He left behind his wife (married for 4 months at the time of death)and both his parents. His wife was expecting their first child at the time of death. The daughter was born on 20.02.2009. How must the estate be divided (only cash).

Please also confirm whether he died as a martyr (he saved my life).

I look forward to your early reply.


May Allah reward you for the excellent services you are rendering to the ummah.
