Quiz #2

Posted on

Below is the answer to the problem we concluded with in the previous post:

Firstly, a share will be set aside for the mafqood in this case.

The estate will be divided into 6 equal portions:

The Grandmother will get 1 portion.
The Father will get 1 portion.

4 portions are set aside for the mafqood son in case he returns. In case he is declared dead, the 4 portions will be given to the father, giving him a total of 5 portions.


We have reached another milestone in our study of `ilm-ul-faraa’idh, mashaa’Allah. If you have made it this far, take a second to sincerely say Alhamdulillah.

Below you will find your second major quiz. Be warned that this one is considerably harder than quiz #1. Also know that the study of `ilm-ul-faraa’idh – and therefore our quizzes – are cumulative. Meaning, everything you needed to know for quiz #1 is also necessary to know for quiz #2, along with all the new topics we learned up until this post.

This quiz consists of 15 inheritance scenarios. Each scenario is designed to test you on one or more specific topics; some may involve radd or `awl, some may involve adjusting the base number, some may involve special cases such as the khuntha mushkil or inheritance by dual relationship, and yet others may involve a combination of these. Your job is to simply figure out what kind of problem you are dealing with and come up with a final answer. The final answer, of course, should be written out in the standard format which we are more than familiar with at this point.

Before attempting the quiz, it is advised that you take some time – ideally, at least a few days – to study the material. Anything we’ve learned so far is fair game for the quiz, so its imperative that you at least review all previous posts before scrolling down and even looking at the quiz.

Finally, since this is a major quiz, it goes without saying that you must do it without any outside help and without looking back at previous posts.

Important notes before you begin:

  1. For all questions involving the unborn baby, you must give both the male and female case answers.
  2. For all questions involving a mafqood, along with your final answer you must state whether portions are set aside for the mafqood or not and how much in case they are set aside. You must also give a separate final answer in the case that the mafqood returns or is declared dead.
  3. For all munaasakha problems, the final answer must be in actual money values, NOT portions.
  4. For all finals answers of munaasakha questions, please refer to the heirs by their final state i.e. their relation with the final mayyit. Review the munaasakha post if you dont know what this means.

Let’s begin, insha’Allah.
