Q: A person had 2 sons and 2 daughters. One of the daughter died before his death. What are the inheritance shares?

If at the time of his death he had no parents or grandparents then after settlement of debts and wasiyyat if any, the estate will be divided into five shares: each son will receive two shares and the daughter will receive one share. The daughter who passed away before the mayyit will not inherit.
