Ruling 2780

If the heirs of the deceased are his father’s and mother’s paternal and maternal uncles and aunts, the estate is divided into three parts: one part is inherited by the deceased’s mother’s paternal and maternal uncles and aunts; in this regard, whether each of them receives an equal share or whether the males receive twice the share of the females is a matter of disagreement [amongst jurists]. Therefore, the obligatory precaution is that they must arrive at a settlement. The remaining two parts is divided into three parts: one part is received by the deceased’s father’s maternal uncle and maternal aunt to be divided between them in the same manner that was mentioned, and the remaining two parts is received by the deceased’s father’s paternal uncle and paternal aunt to be divided between them in the same manner that was mentioned.
