Question
Dear Sir,
I am 25 years old n belong to a muslim
family, recently i came to know that
my father has one more wife whom he
married after 4years from his marriage
to my mom n i have also understood he
has two sons from his 2nd wife.
My question is, as per law whether his
sons from second wife can influence on
any property which belongs to us.

Answer
Dear Zainus
As per Muslim law which is governed by the Shariat, a Muslim can have 4 wives at a time and all children will get a right of share in the father's property. Even though you have not stated to whom your property belongs, assuming that the property is in your father's name, your father's second wife and her children will also get a share over the property.
