Ruling 2751

If the only heirs of the deceased are his father, mother, and one son, the estate is divided into six parts: his father and mother inherit one part each and his son inherits four parts. If the deceased has a number of sons or daughters, then the four parts must be divided equally among them. And if he has a son and a daughter, then the four parts must be divided among them in a way that each son receives twice the share of each daughter.
