There is no question of ancestral property in Shariah law.
Properties of male or female dying intestate shall be distributed in the manner to the legal heirs and the distribution shall be :
To the MALE, a portion equal to that of TWO FEMALES;
If (there are) only DAUGHTERS, two or more, their share is TWO-THIRDS of the inheritance;
If only one, her share is HALF.
For PARENTS, a SIXTH share of inheritance to EACH if the deceased left CHILDREN;
If NO CHILDREN, and the PARENTS are the (ONLY) heirs, the MOTHER has a THIRD;
If the deceased left BROTHERS or (SISTERS), the MOTHER has a SIXTH.
(The distribution in all cases is) after the payment of legacies he may have bequeathed or debts. You know not which of them, whether your parents or your children are nearest to you in benefit.
In that which your WIVES leave, your share is a HALF if they have NO CHILD;
But if they leave a CHILD you get a FOURTH of that which they leave after payment of legacies that they may have bequeathed or debts.
In that which YOU leave, their (YOUR WIVES) share is a FOURTH if you have NO CHILD;
But if you leave a CHILD they get an EIGHTH of that which you leave after payment of legacies that you may have bequeathed or debts.
If the MAN or WOMAN whose inheritance is in question has left NEITHER ASCENDANTS NOR DESCENDANTS but has left a BROTHER or a SISTER, EACH ONE of the two gets a SIXTH; but if MORE THAN TWO, they
share in a THIRD; after payment of legacies he (or she) may have bequeathed or debts, so that no loss is caused (to anyone).
(those who leave neither ascendants nor descendants as heirs).
If it is a MAN that dies, leaving A SISTER but NO CHILD, SHE shall have HALF the inheritance.
If (such a deceased was) a woman, who left NO CHILD, her BROTHER takes her INHERITANCE.
If there are TWO SISTERS, they shall have TWO-THIRDS of the inheritance;
If there are BROTHERS and SISTERS, the male will have TWICE the share of the female.
