Who can inherit if there is no will?
  • Question:

    If you are married and your husband were to pass away and you have no children, Islamically who inherits all his belongings (the house, cars, money etc.) if he had no will, his parents or spouse?

    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    In the described scenario, both parents and spouse will be entitled to the assets and wealth left behind by the deceased husband. The wife and mother are entitled to 25% each and 50% will be awarded to the father. (See: Qur'an 4:11 - 12)

    And Allah knows best.
