How can we distribute inherited houses and movable property,
such as cars, machinery, and the like, if the inheritors agree to the division or disagree? How can a rented store (the deceased used to rent it from its owner) be divided among the inheritors, if we act according to the saying that the lease contract becomes an asset of the property which passes to the inheritors, bearing in mind that the inheritors cannot acquire a common benefit from these properties?
These properties must be divided as prescribed in Shari`ah (Islamic law) by experienced people who should estimate their value. If the inheritors agree to the division and they are adult, this is all right. If they dispute about it, the matter is to be settled by the Shari`ah court. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
