Inheritance of a stillborn child

Q: The driver's brother died, leaving his mother, brothers, sisters and his wife, who was six-month pregnant. After twenty-five days, she miscarried twins; a boy and a girl. Do they deserve a share in the estate of their father, even though they died while still in their mother's womb?

A: If it is proven that the twins were miscarried and born dead, they do not deserve a share in the inheritance, either from their father or from anybody else. The fact that they lived in their mother's womb for twenty-five days or more after their father's death does not entitle them to inheritance, as they were born dead.
