Updated: Dec 21, 2022

There is a full of texts in the Muslim Holy book Quran, and Hadith is a collection of narrations of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam. There are inheritance calculators available online that incorporates the doctrine of Radd (i.e., proportional increase) and Awwal (i.e., proportional decrease) applies to fixed or prescribed shares (Ashab al-Furudh). If Residuary (al-Asabat), then the doctrine of Radd is not applicable. The final Islamic inheritance shares must account for after debts (loans, mortgages, etc.), burial or funeral expenses, legal and administration cost for executors and trustees, obligatory religious debts, inheritance taxes, and testamentary bequests (al-wasiyya). Distant kindred (Dhawul Arham) inherits if neither fixed nor residuary survives, except distant kindred do inherit in the presence of Husband or Wife. The calculated shares will be in fractions, percentages (%), or both. Any individual, lawyer, or judge can use these online calculators can be used without requiring prior knowledge however, they can be used carefully as they may have some inaccuracy or errors due to reliance on computer programming codes, and if needed, validations with Islamic scholars or Mufti are to be done, especially if utilized for estate distribution.
