Answer

In the name of Allāh, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


Assalāmu ῾alaykum wa Rahmatullāhi Wabarakātuh

 

The estate will be divided into 72 equal shares and distributed amongst the heirs as follows;
The son will receive 34 shares

The daughter will receive 17 shares

The mother will receive 12 shares

The wife will receive 9 shares

 

As for the deposited money, if the decased has made his wife the owner, then it will not be consider as part of the estate, however if it was given to her just to look after, then it will be added to the estate.

 

And Allāh Ta῾āla Knows Best

Wassalāmu ῾alaykum
