Below is the answer to the problem given at the end of the previous post:

The estate will be divided into 48 equal portions:

Each Wife receives 3 portions.
The Paternal grandmother receives 18 portions.
The Akhyaafi brother receives 18 portions.

The rest are all non-heirs, and thus, deprived.


We’ve covered a lot of material thus far and its a major milestone to have reached this point. Everyone take a second to say Alhamdulillah with full ikhlaas (sincerity).

Before moving on, its imperative that you be tested on what has been covered so far.

Below, you will see a series of 12 inheritance scenarios. Each case is designed to test you on different types of problems: Some may involve `awl, some radd, others may involve resolving one or more categories, and yet others may involve a combination of these. You are not told which case involves what, that is for you to figure out. Your job is to simply solve the problem and come up with a final answer.

It is required that the final answer be in the standard format which we’ve been using since the beginning, and which was explained at the end of the post Some Terminology and the Procedure for Solving an Inheritance Problem. That is:

  1. State the number of portions the entire estate will be divided into (i.e. the base number).
  2. Assign each individual heir their respective number of portions.
  3. Mention which heirs were excluded, if any. [optional]

To get an accurate measurement of your understanding in solving inheritance problems, you need to do this quiz without any help and without looking back at any other posts. Its advised that you study all previous posts and make sure you really have a good understanding of them before starting the quiz. Even re-doing some of the examples we’ve already done is a good way to study and practice. So please make sure you have thoroughly studied the material before even glancing at the quiz below.
