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.

The distributions of the assets if both your parents and the parents of your father are deceased should be made as follows:-

Each daughter will receive Rs. 1,48,565/- 
Each son to receive            Rs. 2,97,129/50
In future whatever amount you accumulate you should divide the same into 7 shares, then distribute as follows:
each daughter to receive 1 share
each son to receive         2 shares
Zakat must be paid by each one individually. They should individually merge their amounts to their other assets and pay the zakat 2.5% on their total equity.
If there is any further clarification you require, please feel free to email us.

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. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
