What is the Islamic ruling regarding the testimony and inheritance of hermaphrodites?


Huzooraa was asked:

… 3. about the testimony and inheritance of hermaphrodites. 

Huzooraa, in a letter dated 14 January 2020, gave the following reply:..

3. “As far as the hermaphrodites’ share of inheritance is concerned, they will get a share according to the gender that is more pronounced in them. If masculinity is predominant, then the male share of the inheritance will be given and if femininity is predominant, then they will be assumed female and the share of inheritance will be given accordingly. However, if both genders are manifested equally, then, according to the opinion of Hazrat Imam Abu Hanifara, the smaller of the two shares will be given to such a person.”
