Assallamu Alaykum Dear Mufti saab.

Please advise, regarding the way shares should be distributed in our case.

My father passed away few years ago
Leaving behind only some properties .
Now we are in the process of disolving
These properties.

The surviving members of our family are:

1 wife (our mother),
3 brothers,
1 sister.

Also 1 brother separate from the 3 brothers(meaning we were 4 brothers ), passed away a few years after our Father. ( this brother had a wife but no children ).

Please advise how the shares according to shariah should be distributed equivalent in percentages.

Jazakallah
