A question

If a brother dies, and his earned himself his whole life there’s nothing of the fathers in the business, does the siblings get a share from the inheritance.


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

In principle, if a person worked and earned in his lifetime without any input from the father, the earnings will belong to him solely.

The information provided is not sufficient for us to comment on the siblings inheriting.

You may provide more information for us to assist you.


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
