Inheritance of husband who had two wives

Question ID: 32554

I have question to you mufti sahib. It is about my sister in law. Her husband has died and she has no children.
His husband has also one more wife and that wife has two children a son and a daughter. My sister belongs to fiqah
hanfia while his husband was from fiqa jafria and the other wife and children are also from fiqa jafria.
My question is about inheritance. The court says that the children of other wife wil get their part of inheritance
and their mother wil get 1/8th which she has to share with my sister that means my sister wil get 1/16th.
I want to know is that correct in islam that my sister wil get 1/16th while she has no children and other wife and
children wil get a bigger part of inheritance.
I will be very thankful to you if you answer my question soon.

Thanking you in advance.
