Under Islamic law, why is a woman's share of the inherited wealth only half that of a man?


The Glorious Qur'an contains specific and detailed guidance regarding the division of the inherited wealth, among the rightful beneficiaries.

The Qur'anic verses that contain guidance regarding inheritance are:

* Surah Al Baqarah, Chapter 2 Verse 180

* Surah Al Baqarah, Chapter 2 Verse 240

* Surah An Nisa', Chapter 4 Verse 7-9

* Surah An Nisa', Chapter 4 Verse 19

* Surah An Nisa', Chapter 4 Verse 33 and

* Surah Al Ma'idah, Chapter 5 Verses 106-108

There are three verses in the Qur'an that broadly describe the share of close relatives i.e. Surah An Nisa' Chapter 4 Verses 11, 12 and 176. The translation of these verses are as follows:

"Allah (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 is) 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 Allah; and Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise........to be continued

your title is wrong . a woman's share of the inherited wealth is EQUAL to the man's share as the Quran stated clearly . " The male shall have the equal of the portion of two females; ( as exactly as each female gets ) then if they are more than two females, they shall have two-thirds of what the deceased has left, and if there is one ( as in one male and one female ) , she shall have the half " .

all here against Islam i just wanna say :this is Islam who gave such respect to girls"before Islam if girl was born they used to burry alive and there was no repsect,so girls here complaining to islam is better to complain their parents who did not give them any right,Islam asked to give but if they donot give then they will have to answer day of Judgment,

Ok so a women will always beg a men to provide her food shelter

Other case is after a divorce a man can easily find a young girl to marry with him but lets be honest who will marry a divorcee women unless she has wealth
