What is the proprietary position of female under Sunni Muslim law?

  • ansUnder Sunni law, the daughter is a residuary with a son, so that in the residue her share will be half of his share. But in the absence of a son her position is that of a sharer and a single daughter takes 1⁄2 and two or more daughters share 2/3 of the estate. If the deceased left behind a mother, daughter and a brother, under the Hanafi scheme the mother gets one-sixth, the daughter half and the brother one-third.
