Women's inheritance

Q 6 and 7: Does a female deserve a share of inheritance from her father's land, sheep, (Part No. 16; Page No. 495) money and orchards? Is it permissible to distribute the father's property to the children according to the way they agree upon?

A 6 and 7: Allah (Praised and Exalted be He) explained issues related to inheritance in His saying: Allâh commands you as regards your children’s (inheritance): to the male, a portion equal to that of two females Therefore, a female deserves half of what a male deserves of inheritance whether it is movable or fixed property after settling the deceased's debts if he is indebted and executing his legal will if he had made one. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
