Inheritance share for grandchildren.


I have a question regarding inheritance share does grandson (son’s son) and grand daughters have share in their grandmother’s property and she has a daughter(Paternal aunt) in the survivors.the grand son and daughters are the children of her pre deceased son.If yes than what fraction?


Salamun Alaykum

Thank you for your query.

If the grandmother has sons or daughters then the grandchildren do not inherit.

If the only heir is the daughter and the deceased has no parents, then all property is inherited by the daughter.

May Allah(swt) grant you success
