INHERITANCE ACCORDING TO QURAN

Allah directs you regarding your children: “To the male shall be as that given to two females. If they are only females and more than two, then they will have one third of what is inherited. And if there is only one female, then she will have one half, and to his parents each one of them one sixth of what is inherited if he has children. If he has no children and his parents are the heirs, then to his mother is one third; if he has siblings then to his mother is one sixth. All after a will is carried through or a debt. You parents and your children, you do not know which is closer to you in benefit, a directive from Allah, Allah is Knowledgeable, Wise. [4:11]

after debt paid and will carried through

children = male 2x female, only females (more than two) 2/3, one female 1/2
parents 1/6 each if children, mother 1/3 if no children, mother 1/6 if siblings

And for you is half of what your wives leave behind if they have no children; but if they have a child then to you is one quarter of what they leave behind. All after a will is carried through or a debt. And to them is one quarter of what you leave behind if you have no child; but if you have a child then to them is one eighth of what you leave behind. All after a will is carried through or a debt. And if a man or a woman has no one, but has a brother or sister, then to each one of them is one sixth, but if they are more than this then they are to share in one third. All after a will is carried through or a debt, which does not cause harm. A directive from Allah, and Allah is Knowledgeable, Compassionate. [4:12]

male widow = 1/2 if no children, 1/4 if child
female widow = 1/4 if no children, 1/8 if child
no children/parents = siblings of deceased 1/6 each, more than six siblings 1/3

They seek a ruling from you, say: “Allah gives you the ruling for those who have no descendants. If a person passes away and has no children but has a sister, then she shall receive half of what he leaves behind. And he will inherit from her if she has no child. However, if he has two sisters, then they will receive two thirds of what he left behind; and if he has siblings, men and women, then the male shall receive twice what the female receives.” Allah makes clear to you that you do not stray; Allah is aware of all things. [4:176]
