Femal's inheritance in the holy quran and the holy book
Islam Gives the woman the right to inherit
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…”
Please note that:
(1) in some cases woman inherits
half a man inherits.
In other cases her share is as equal
In other cases she inherits more
than a man inherits.
Muslims can’t change the Divine laws
Needless to say Muslims must follow
all the commandments of Allah (SWT)
as Allah the Almighty says, "It is not for

the wife he does not love.
Deuteronomy 21 to Con.

described by Rabbi Epstein: "The
continuous and unbroken tradition
since the Biblical days gives the female
members of the household, wife and
daughters, no right of succession to the
The Biblical attitude Criticized
In the more primitive scheme of
succession, the female members of
the family were considered part of
the estate and as remote from the
legal personality of an heir as the slave.
Females are inherited:
Rabbi Epstein says : "They are owned --
before marriage, by the father; after
marriage, by the husband.“
Also remember, according to the Bible,
a father can sell his daughters.
