Question : #611 Category: Will / Inheritance
Subject: wasiyat
Question: MY MOTHER HAS EXPIRED AND NOW RECENTLY MY GRANDFATHER HAS EXPIRED WITHOUT A WILL (WASIYAT) HE HAS 4 DAUGHTER AND 2 STEP SONS ACCORDING TO AYATOLLAH SISTANI WILL I HIS GRANDSON WILL INHERIT ANYTHING FROM HIM?
Answer: S/A,
The question doesn't clarify enough to provide a direct answer, but the rules regarding inheritance according to Sayyed Sistani is as follows:

There are three groups of persons who inherit from a dead person, on the basis of relationship:

(i) The first group consists of the dead person's parents and children, and in the absence of children, the grand children, however low, and among them whoever is nearer to the dead person inherits his property. And as long as even a single person from this group is present, people belonging to the second group do not inherit.

(ii) The second group consists of paternal grandfather, paternal grandmother, and sisters, brothers, and in the absence of sisters and brothers their children, whoever from among them is nearer to the dead person, will inherit from him. And as long as even one person from this group is present, people belonging to the third group do not inherit.

(iii) The third group consists of paternal uncles and paternal aunts and maternal uncles and maternal aunts, and their descendants. And as long as even one person from the paternal uncles and paternal aunts and maternal uncles and maternal aunts of the dead person is present, their children do not inherit. However, if the paternal step uncle and the son of the real paternal uncle are present, the son of the dead person's real paternal uncle will inherit from him to the exclusion of the paternal step uncle. But if there are several paternal uncles and several paternal cousins, or if the widow is alive, then this rule is not without Ishkal.

InshaAllah this satisfy's your query.
