Children are inheritors

Do children inherit from their parents. If they do, then how much do they receive?

the Fatwa Department Research Committee - chaired by Sheikh `Abd al-Wahhâb al-Turayrî

Children definitely do inherit from their parents’ estates. Allah says: “Allah directs you regarding your children, 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 one-half.” [Sûrah al-Nisâ’: 11]

However, the exact portions that the children shall receive depends upon who the other inheritors are. This can only be determined by a scholar who looks directly into an inheritance case firsthand.
