Types of heirs according to their inheritance
· Those who inherit assigned shares: There are seven types of these heirs: husband, wife, the two grandmothers, mother and her two sons.
· The heirs who do not have assigned shares. There are 10 of these, known as ta'sib: son, grandson, full brother and his son; half-brother from the same father and his son; full paternal uncle and his son; paternal uncle from the same father and his son.
· Heirs who inherit as far in one capacity and ta'sib in another, combining both. These are the father and the grandfather.
· Heirs who inherit as far in one capacity and ta'sib in another but do not combine both. These are the ones who jointly inherit one half of the estate, except the deceased’s husband, and the ones who jointly inherit a share of two-thirds.
