Property

Property, in the abstract, is what belongs to or with something, whether as an attribute or as a component of said thing. In the context of this article, it is one or more components (rather than attributes), whether physical or incorporeal, of a person's estate; or so belonging to, as in being owned by, a person or jointly a group of people or a legal entity like a corporation or even a society. Depending on the nature of the property, an owner of property has the right to consume, alter, share, redefine, rent, mortgage, pawn, sell, exchange, transfer, give away or destroy it, or to exclude others from doing these things, as well as to perhaps abandon it; whereas regardless of the nature of the property, the owner thereof has the right to properly use it (as a durable, mean or factor, or whatever), or at the very least exclusively keep it.

Thank you for your question. The space between two objects is not an object, while at the same time it is filled with tiny objects such as atoms, microbes etc. An object is a 3 dimentional body, and the space between objects is the space between their limitations. However, just because it is not an object doesn't mean that it doesn't exist as part of the corporeal world. Existence is reality and so since the space exists it is real, even if we do not classify space as a body or an object.

May you always be successful

No share for the deceased son or daughter nor to their children after them as far as they died before their parents. When a person dies leaving his own children, and grandchildren, direct children only have the right to inherit from him as far as they were alive when the parent died. Those who died before their parents have no right in inheritance unless all the children have dies before their parents, then their children will inherit from their grand parents because no direct son or daughter are alive.

Wassalam.

No one has any right in inheriting from this man but his own two daughters and his wife if she was alive when he passed away. Wife should  get one eighth and rest should be equally divided between the two daughters. If no wife was alive when he passed away, then all the property and wealth should be dived equally between his two daughters only. No one else from the relatives is entitled for any inheritance from him. This is according to Ahlul Bayt (AS) who have the real teachings of the Prophet (SAWA). Sunni brothers have something different which prevents the daughters and give to other male relatives, which is away from Quran and Real Sunnah.

A woman is not required to marry a man just because he wants to marry her. She is also not required to give a reason for refusing. Marriage is optional. 

The opposite is also true - that is, a man is not required to marry a woman just because she wants to marry him, and he is also not required to give a reason for refusing. 

The idea a woman must give her life over to a man simply because he asks - unless she had a reasonable excuse - would indeed be an astonishing form of male privilege.

Main criteria for marriage in Islam is religious practice and good morals. Financial status is not among the main conditions. In fact the Prophet (SAWA) proposed a marriage between very poor person ( Jowaibir) and a very rich woman (Al-Dhalfaa').

The man should be able to earn livelihood for him and his wife and live with his wife with dignity.

You must keep on trying to reach to the real owner and return the parcel to them. If -after trying your best- you become sure that there is no hope at all to reach to the owners, then the item will be Majhool al-Maalik (unknown owner) which should be given to the poor on behalf of the owners.

The brother and sisters would not inherit because they belong to the second category and as long as any member of the first category exists, members of the second category would not inherit. 

In the case of your question, according to the fatwa of Ayatollah Khamenei, the wife would inherit one eighth of the assets and the rest would be divided equally between the daughters.
