Indian Muslim died leaving his wife and two children born at Canada possessing property in India. Succession?



A property settled by his father is legally to be succeeded by his wife and children. Where and how to get the certificate of legal heirs of the person at Canada?
The property is settled by the father to son while at India and later he got married. He was employed at Canada and got married to a Muslim Malaysian and had a daughter and a son. Since he too died and the legal heir certificate is to be obtained from Canada to prove the widow and the children are the legal heirs of the deceased.

  1. I expect that this would have to follow Indian inheritance laws. As the family is Muslim, it will most probably follow Shariah law, which gives the father a small share (can’t remember exactly, maybe a quarter), and the balance goes to wife and children.


  2. Muslims in India are governed by the All India Muslim Personal Law or Shariah Law. And they have definite laws with regard to inheritance unlike other groups in India who can do according to thier wish.
