Unlike Hindu Law, estate of a deceased Mohamedan if he has died intestate, devolves on his heirs at the moment of his death. Under the Mohamedan Law, birthright is not recognised. The right of an heir apparent or presumptive comes into existence for the first time on the death of the ancestor, and he is not entitled until then to any interest in the property to which he would succeed as an heir if he survived the ancestor."
