  1. Commandment – Regarding Kalalah – If a man dies leaving no child

 

[4:177] They ask thee for instructions. Say, Allah gives you His instructions concerning ‘Kalalah’: If a man dies leaving no child and he has a sister, then she shall have half of what he leaves; and he shall inherit her if she has no child. But if there be two sisters, then they shall have two-thirds of what he leaves. And if the heirs be brethren — both men and women — then the male shall have as much as the portion of two females. Allah explains this to you lest you go astray, and Allah knows all things well.
