Dear Brother / Sister,
The answer for your first question:
If the dying is man:
All of his property is accepted as 27 parts.
Each of his doughter gets : 8/27
His wife gets : 3/27
His father gets : 4/27
His mother gets : 4/27
There is nothing for the brother and sisters of that person, because if father and mother stil live, they can not get anything.
The answer for your second question:
As we expressed above, if mother and father still live, they have right to get the inheritance. The brother and sisters of that person are not to get anything.
The answer for your third question:
That will is acceptable. A person before dying can bequeath a certain amount of his property. But, ıt can not be bequeathed to the heirs. Because our Prophet said that: “It can not be bequeathed to the heir.” (Tirmizi, Vesaya 5, 2122; Nasai, Vasaya 5)
However, if he makes a donation when he is alive, -although it is not advisible-, this donation is valid.
