The brothers' shares of inheritance

A: Brothers must receive equal shares of inheritance. If they are all equal in the degree of relation to the dead person; that is, they are full brothers or half-brothers and the deceased is their brother, each of them should receive an equal share. Being educated or not has no effect on their shares of inheritance. The same applies whether or not their children were brought up in the family. Also, brothers must receive equal shares as long as they are sons of the deceased. If the children of the deceased include males and females, the males must receive a portion of the inheritance equal to the shares of two females.
