As Salaamualaykum Respected Mufti
My late great grandfather had a property and was recently sold. The monies need to be distributed. My late Great Grand Father had 2 daughters and 3 sons; Only 1 daughter is alive, the other children are late. My question is: when calculating the ratios for inheritance will the shares be given to the families of the children that are deceased, who will in turn distribute the monies accordingly within the particular family branch? So for example one of my Great Grand Fathers daughter had 5 children, will a share be given to these 5 children to be distributed according to Islamic Law.
