Q: My father died 3 years ago and he left some property behind and he didn’t write any will. He has only five daughters and a wife. His father and mother are not alive and he has no siblings from father's side but his mother got married to another man and she has 4 children. All his property is self made and he didn’t get a penny from his mother or anyone. Do we need to give some share to his brothers and sisters from his maternal side?

A: They do not get any share in this case.

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