Bismillah Walhamdulillah Was Salaatu Was Salaam ‘ala Rasulillah

Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas (Radi-Allahu ‘anhu):

The  custom (in old days) was that the property of the deceased would be  inherited by his offspring; as for the parents (of the deceased), they  would inherit by the will of the deceased. Then Allah cancelled from  that custom whatever He wished and fixed for the male double the amount  inherited by the female, and for each parent a sixth (of the whole  legacy) and for the wife an eighth or a fourth and for the husband a  half or a fourth.
