Juristic school:

Juristic schools may have different opinions about how to divide up an estate. Select the juristic school you follow or prefer to follow. If you do not follow any particular juristic school, you may select 'No preference.' The default is the juristic school of Abu-Haneefa.

Undersubscription preference:

When the sum of distributed shares is less than the estate, how do you prefer to distribute the remainder?

Divide it between the named heirs by the ratios to each other of their named shares (Consensus)
Include spouses in the dividing (Uthman)
Give it to the Islamic treasury (Maliki)
Oversubscription preference:

When the sum of distributed shares is more than the estate, how do you prefer to reset the shares?

Redivide all shares by their ratios to each other (Consensus)
Reduce the share of the farthest female heir (Zahiri/Jaafari)
May God accept this work and turn it into a 'knowledge that benefits.'
