A Muslim mother is entitled to inherit from her children, if they are independent. She is eligible to inherit one-sixth of her dead child's property if her son is a father as well. In the absence of grandchildren, she would get the one-third share. There are other provisions, too, in the law which ensure financial security of a Muslim woman.
