INHERITANCE OF A DAUGHTER: AN ANALYSIS BASED ON ISLAM AND LAWS PREVALENT IN PAKISTAN
Islam is one of the first religions of the human history to emphasize Women rights of inheritance. With the more development, research and codification of laws under Muslim schools, there arise several deviations in contemporary theories, practices and state laws being in force. Under qualitative legal research methodology, this paper tends to examine concept of daughter’s share of paternal inheritance; firstly, under the theoretical dimensions with contrasts in contemporary Muslim Jurisprudence and secondly, under the prevalent legal paradigms in Pakistan. This paper also aims at testing the relevant state laws in force, exploring the problems and suggesting pragmatic solutions and recommendations for fair implementation and execution of Woman inheritance in Pakistan.
