There are four things which have to be done after the death of a Muslim. Firstly, his funeral expenses have to be paid. Then his debt should be cleared. After that, his will if any should be executed and lastly all his property and estate needs to be distributed among his relatives. The direct beneficiaries of a Muslim’s property are his children.

Allah commands you regarding your children. For the male a share equivalent to two females. Quran (4:11).
