Description from the publisher:
The author presents an analytical and scientific study of the Islamic inheritance system, focusing on the woman’s inheritance. He reveals a practical application to the main Islamic inheritance principles through clarifying why men and women inherit different portions.
Through a basic mathematical calculation, the author converts the system into simple tables and charts, in an innovative approach, and shows that it is based on justice and fairness for all people, regardless of gender. Also, it responds to the current overwhelming misunderstanding of Islam, Muslims, and the situation of the Muslim women.
The author analyzes how a woman inherits as a mother, a wife, a daughter, and/or a sister. Regardless of her status, she always inherits in almost all of the various cases. At times, she inherits different portions of the wealth, such as more than or equal to the man, and in many other cases she inherits and the man does not.
