Answer:         

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.

As-salaamu `alaykum wa-ramatullahi wa-barakatuh.

The laws of Inheritance require detailed information about the family and relatives of the deceased. You should refer to a Darul Iftaa in Pakistan.

In general, the three daughters will be entitled to 2/3 of the estate. The remaining 1/3 will go to the closest relatives. We therefore advise you to refer to your local Darul Iftaa which will find out the appropriate information and advise accordingly.  

And Allah Ta`ala Knows Best.
