Inheritance Query

Inheritance Query



Mufti Sahib

I pray you are well, may Allah keep you and your family with Aafiyah.

I needed some help in working out how to distribute the money I owed my Marhoom Father.

The Amount I owed my Father at the time of his passing away was a total of £65118.

Of which £4000 was from my mums account in which only my mums benefits were going in to.

Which leaves me owing my Dad £61,118.

We are 5 brothers and 4 sisters and my Mother , to whom I need to distribute this money to.

The problem i have is the Account from which my Father gave me this money had money coming in from 3 benefits , Pension Credit, State Pension and Attendance Allowance.

To my knowledge there was no other money coming into this Account. The Pension Credit was coming on both my Fathers n mums name, the other 2 on only my fathers name.

In the years my father borrowed me money pension credit was as follows

2009 couple £ 198.45 pw

2011 Couple £ 202.40 pw

2013   Couple £217.90 pw

2014   Couple £226.50 pw

State Pension on only Dads name

2009 £152.30 pw

2011 £163.35 pw

2013   £176.15 pw

2014   £ 180.09 pw

Attendance Allowance on only Dads name

2009 £67 pw

2011 £73.6 pw

2013 £79.15 pw

2014 £ 81.3 pw.

The above figures i have got through google searches.

My Question is how do I work out the Inheritance, and how much will my Mother and each of my Brothers and Sisters get.

Jazakallah khayra



In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful,

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Muhtaram Moulana Ishaq Sahib (Hafidhakallah)

We hope and make Dua you are well. Allah Ta’ala accept all your Khidmaat. Ameen.

We have reviewed your query and after analysis of the figures you have presented, it is not possible to determine the exact proportion of your mother’s money used in the loan. Accordingly, we are unable to determine an accurate amount owed to the heirs.

We advise you to discuss the issue with your mother and all siblings and mutually decide on the best course of action.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
