Inheritance of man with two wives

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)


One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Assalamu alaikum brothers in Islam


My question here is if a man dies and left behind two wives, full sister, and con sanguine brother, what are their respective s shares.

Inheritance of man with two wives

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Respected brother, we need the following clarification to properly answer the question:

  1. We need a confirmation that the deceased is survived only by his two wives, a full sister, and a con-sanguine brother. Please confirm whether the deceased is not survived by any of his children, and the deceased mother and father both have died before him.
  2. Ref: the con-sanguine brother. Please confirm whether this con-sanguine brother is from a common mother or a common the shares for each are different.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
