I recently sent this question, but made an error with the figure at the end, it should have been 3000000. I have now corrected it and the question stands as below.
My father in law passed away in 2006 leaving behind some property as way of an inheritence. He left behind a wife, 5 sons and 3 daughters. During his life 3 of his sons (including my husband) received their share according to their and his wish. As the inheritence is tied up in property it has not been easy to liquidate this as a way of giving out the family members their inheritence. Now 1 of the daughters is in need of money and requiring her inheritence.
My brothers-in-law are now saying that during his life my father-in-law stated that his wishes were that his wife and 2 sons who hadn’t received their share yet along with 1 sister who was widowed and contributed much to the familiy should get 100% while the 2 remaining sisters should get 25% share. My husband has not questioned this as this was his fathers wishes.
The situation now though is that my brothers-in-law are saying that as my father died in 2006 my sister-in-law who is in need of her share should get her share out of the property valued from 2006 not the current value of the property. They have also said that they are only giving her this share as it was their father’s wish. They have said that according to Islamic law My sister-in-law is not actually entitled to any share as she is married and has a son. I have looked into this and although it is quite complex for me cannot see anywhere saying that a sister no longer inherits from her father if she is married and has a son.
The current value of assets is 4600000 INR whereas in 2006 it would have been 3000000 INR.
I thank you for your help in this matter.
