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.

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.

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.
