My grandfather had two pieces of land and my father had siblings, two brothers and four sisters. When the land was shared out, my paternal uncles did not give the daughters anything. What is your advice?


One of the gravest of prohibited actions that many people take lightly is unfairness in division of inheritance and not paying attention to the justice and fairness that Allah Ta’ala enjoins. Allah Ta’ala has explained the rulings on inheritance and the share of each heir, and then He warned against the one who goes against these rulings. With regard to this issue the prohibition is more emphatic and the sin incurred is greater because of what is involved of usurping the land and because of what it involves of severing ties of kinship and wronging one’s sisters.
