Q: My grandfather died 22 years ago. He left behind a big house but the property was never distributed among the heirs. My grandfather has 5 sons and the eldest one (my uncle) used to live in that house with his wife and sons. Now my eldest uncle has died and my other uncles are planning to dispose off the property. I would like to know if the wife and sons of my deceased uncle inherit from this property.

A: Yes.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
