11. God (thus) directs you as regards your Children's (Inheritance): to the male, a portion

equal to that of two females: if only daughters, two or more, their share is two-thirds of

the inheritance; if only one, her share is a half. For parents, a sixth share of the

inheritance to each, if the deceased left children; if no children, and the parents are the

(only) heirs, the mother has a third; if the deceased Left brothers (or sisters) the mother

has a sixth. (The distribution in all cases ('s) after the payment of legacies and debts. Ye

know not whether your parents or your children are nearest to you in benefit. These are

settled portions ordained by God; and God is All-knowing, Al- wise.
