      I was reading an article on the BBC web site about the shina-sunni divide in Indian Muslims and it stated one of the complaints Shia's had with Sunnis was over the application of inheritance laws. ANyway I wasn't aware of this difference and I was hoping someone could add something to my knowledge on the issue

      http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/south_asia/4235999.stm

      The Shias say they don't believe in the controversial "triple talaq" or instant divorce - a system wherein a Muslim man can divorce his wife in a matter of minutes.

      There are also differences in inheritance laws.


      Among the Sunnis, a man's sister - along with his children- is entitled to a share of inheritance after his death.

      When a Shia man dies, his property is only inherited by his children. No other family member has any claim.

      there probably are differences, exactly what, I don't know. but from what you've posted, if its correct, i don't see a problem with a sister not inheriting from her brother. She inherits from her father, her husband and her children. Simply I think it comes down to order of priority during inheritance. If a man dies and all all debts are paid off, inheritance is first given to the children, then the wife, then the parents if they are alive (or it could be parents fisrt, i forget) and so on. I'm sure its the same case with sunni fiqh too.

      oh yeah and a man can't divorce his wife by repeating or texting talaq 3 times at once. Overall it probably takes 3 to 6 months from initiation to completion of the whole process.

      it doesnt seem as simple as the article seems to say. there seem to be three groupings. one of children, one of near relatives, one of mamu chacha waghera.

      here's the ayatollah that I follow's rulings on it. feel free to parse thru if u can. i got a headache quite quickly.

      re talaq: we have three talaqs, but an iddat between each one.

      brothers and sisters do have a share in inheritance according to Quran (surah 4, verses 12 and 176 for example) and i dont see how any scholar (sunni or shia) can say that a sister is not supposed to get a share from the inheritance....

      from ravage's link:

      2737. There are three groups of persons who inherit from a dead person, on the basis of relationship:

      The first group consists of the dead person's parents and children, and in the absence of children, the grand children, however low, and among them whoever is nearer to the dead person inherits his property. And as long as even a single person from this group is present, people belonging to the second group do not inherit.

      The second group consists of paternal grandfather, paternal grandmother, and sisters, brothers, and in the absence of sisters and brothers their children, whoever from among them is nearer to the dead person, will inherit from him. And as long as even one person from this group is present, people belonging to the third group do not inherit.


      Pretty much explains it.
