12. In what your wives leave, your share is a half, if they leave no child; but if they leave

a child, ye get a fourth; after payment of legacies and debts. In what ye leave, their share

is a fourth, if ye leave no child; but if ye leave a child, t hey get an eighth; after payment

of legacies and debts. If the man or woman whose inheritance is in question, has left

neither ascendants nor descendants, but has left a brother or a sister, each one of the two

gets a sixth; but if more than two, they share in a third; after payment of legacies and

debts; so that no loss is caused (to any one). Thus is it ordained by God; and God is All-

knowing, Most Forbearing.
