    Is there any mathematical errors in the chapter 4,verse 11-12 of the Quran regarding inheritance law?

    And Why are we using manmade directions (awl method or others) which violates Quranic FIXED share of the heirs to solve this mathematical problem regarding inheritance from the age of Sahaba( Ra.)?

    There is no mathematical problem as per Quranic calculation related to distribution of inheritance. The famous issues of awl and Issues of hamaria (famously known as Qazia-e-hamaria) were solutions to problems faced by initial fiqh and it seems that in order to solidify their stance, some narrations were associated with Second Caliph Umar (rta), giving an impression as if He was the initiator of those practical solutions offered in order to solve some serious mathematical problems in Quran.

    When Ghamid Sahab studied those verses, it became apparent that there is no such contradiction in the verses of Quran hence, there is no need to question the mathematical accuracy of Quran.

    For details, you can read law of inheritance in Ghamidi Sahab’s book Islam (English rendering of Meezan done by Dr. Shehzad Saleem). You can also refer to video lectures of Ghamidi Sahab on Meezan for related portion on law of inheritance.
