Who has right to get the job in islam

Q:

If mom is killed by unknown person and govt provides job to us. We r two brothers, who has right to get the job in islam n if one gets job, what to other.

A:

Salaamun Alaykum

This issue is very personal, islam gives us general rulings where by we have to use our intellect and implement them in our lives.
So for the job, you will have to decide amongst yourselves depending on your needs and requirements.
If you are getting the job because your mother was the provider of the family, then you will have to decide and agree amongst yourselves on who will take up the job and provide for the other brother, until he finds another job or until his requirements are fulfilled.
