(All Sunni Muslim) Through former husband Mrs. A has 2 sons R and I. Mrs. A remarries Mr. B. Out of this marriage no sons / daughters were born. Mr. B through his earlier marriage had 3 sons, wherein 2 sons died before Mr. B. Only one son is alive. Mr. B dies intestate. So should we consider that Mrs. A is a CHILDLESS WIDOW. How the shares will be divided between deceased 2 sons legal heirs, living Son and living Widow in the property of Mr. B? Will the legal heirs of the deceased son gets any share in B's property? If we consider her CHILDLESS WIDOW then as per Shariat Law, a Childless Widow will inherit 1/4th share in the deceased’s property. Mrs A is filing Partition Suit, so how much share she should claim 1/8th or 1/4th? Will the step-sons R and I can get any share in Mr. B's property as per Shariat Law? Please help.
