The male and female heirs have the same rights of inheritance under the Muslim laws. However, the usual practice is to give a female share half the share given to a male heir. The rationale behind this is that the female receives mehr and maintenance from her husband at the time of her marriage, whereas the male only has the property of ancestors for inheritance.

If your sister has already got her share, you can send her a legal notice warning her of a court case.
