Our father died and left a house, where some workers live in return for the payment of a monthly rent. Our family is large and we have no other source of income except the revenue of that house. Is it permissible for us to live on this money?
If we have to divide this house among us through inheritance, can we sell it?
If the reality is as you mentioned, you can, after the repayment of any debts, and after executing his bequest if he made any, divide the revenue of the house among you. You have to agree among yourselves either to sell or rent this house. You have to do what is of benefit to you. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
