Quiz #2 – Answer Key

Posted on Updated on

Below you will find the answer key to Quiz #2. All answers are in standard format.

Please check your answers insha’Allah and determine your grade according to the grading method below:

Grading Method:

Each question is worth 1 point for a total of 15 points.

  • An answer in which even a single heir received inheritance when he/she was supposed to be deprived will receive 0 points.
  • An answer in which even a single heir was deprived when he/she was supposed to receive inheritance will receive 0 points.
  • An answer in which even a single heir received more or less than their due share will receive 0 points.
  • An answer in which even a single heir was assigned a non-whole number of portions (i.e. 1.5 portions, 2.33 portions, 1/2 a portion etc.) will receive 0 points.
  • An answer in which a higher base number (and hence, different portions) is used, but ultimately the fractions of portions over base number come out to be equal to the ones in the answer key will receive 1/2 a point. This is because using a higher than necessary base number – although it will get you to the correct answer – is considered inefficient and “bad” inheritance problem-solving practice.
  • All answers to the unborn baby scenarios in which only one case (either the male or female) is correct will receive 1/2 a point. Of course, if both are incorrect, that’s 0 points.
  • All answers to the mafqood scenarios in which only one of the two final answers is correct will receive 1/2 a point. Of course, if both are incorrect, that’s 0 points.
  • A completely correct answer (with same base number and portions used as in the answer key) will receive 1 point.

      Masha’Allah, nice catch! A silly mistake on our part. We divided the estate into 6 portions but only distributed 4 of them. You are correct, the mafqood son will get 4 portions. The answer has been edited.

      JazaakAllah for this very important correction. You are obviously making good progress with ilm-ul-faraa’idh, masha’Allah.
