If you have several wives

According to faraidh, upon your demise, the portion of your estate allocated to the wife will be split equally among all your wives – namely, 1/8 of your estate if you have children, or 1/4 if you have no children. As an illustration, if you have 3 wives and no children, the portion for the wife is 1/4. Hence, each of your 3 wives will be entitled to 1/12 of your estate. The balance 3/4 will be distributed to the other faraidh beneficiaries.
