Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
Can a woman who is a mother through breastfeeding (radaa’ah) inherit from her son through breastfeeding if he dies and has a wife and children, and how much does she inherit?.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Praise be to Allaah.
A mother through breastfeeding is not entitled to inherit from the child whom she breastfed just because she breastfed him, whether he has heirs or not.
She may be entitled to inherit for some other reason (other than breastfeeding), such as if she is the grandmother of the infant, or a sister through ties of blood. In that case she is entitled to inherit because of being closely related.
And Allaah is the Source of strength.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
