From: Sunan Ibn Majah
Chapter No. 26, The Chapters on Shares of Inheritance
Hadith No: 2721
Narrated/Authority of Huzail bin Shurahbil
"A man came to Abu Musa Al-Ashari and Salman bin Rabiah Al-Bahili and asked them about (the shares of) a daughter, a son's daughter, a sister through one's father and mother. They said: 'The daughter gets one half, and what is left goes to the sister. Go to Ibn Masud, for he will concur with what we say.' So the man went to Ibn Masud, and told him what they had said. Abdullah said: 'I will go astray and will not be guided (if I say that I agree); but I will judge as the Messenger of Allah (saw) judged. The daughter gets one half, and the son's daughter gets one-sixth. That makes two thirds. And what is left goes to the sister.'"
