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

A:
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.
