To answer your question can a single daughter inherit all the wealth of her father?...the answer is no she can not inherit the whole wealth because there is a hadith which says,

[Abdullah ibn Abbas (RA) reported that the Prophet Muhammad (SAWS) said, "Give the Faraid (the shares of the inheritance that are prescribed in the Quran) to those who are entitled to receive it. Then whatever remains, should be given to the closest male relative of the deceased."] (Sahih al-Bukhari)

Therefore, for this reason she gets what Allah Has prescribed for her in the Qur'an, which says,

[If (there are) women (daughters) more than two, then for them two thirds of the inheritance; and if there is only one then it is half."] [Quran 4:11]

This is what is prescribed for her, but this issue should not be taking lightly and it should be referred to a scholar of where they are as this can not be dealt with one simple answer, so the just way is to referred to those who are knowledgeable in this field of where you live and Allah knows best.

assalamo alaikom i well if the dead person had ''dain'' mean debt that person is the first who should paid .. and pay all money of his Funeral then they should look if he had made a will the limit of the will is 1/3 of the left propriety then we can start in legacy first people there is two types of people that can have legacy 1. who are the first mean 2. those people ما معنى أصحاب الفروض: هم الأفراد الذين فرض لهم الله عز وجل نصيبا مفروضا محدد مثل الربع والنصف والسدس ، ويقسم الميراث لهم أولا. وهم : اثنا عشر: أربعة من الذكور وهم الأب والجد الصحيح وإن علا والأخ لأم والزوج . وثمان من الإناث وهن الزوجة والبنت والأخت الشقيقة والأخت لأب والأخت لأم وبنت الابن والأم والجدة الصحيحة وإن علت .they are ''translated like that those who god talked about them in quran and really said the quantity like half or 1/2 or 1/4 and they are father grandfather brother ''husband as said on the top '' wife daughter sister ''all types of sisters from mother or father daughter of son mother grandmother 'you can trnslate the arabic post to know more

and after those wo go to second type who are ''osba of the dead '' mean ما معنى العصبات: العَصَبَة جمع عاصب كطلبة و طالب ، وهم بنو الرجل وقرابته لأبيه ، وسموا بذلك لشدَ بعضهم أزر بعض . مثل الإبن والأب والعم وأولاده والأخ لأب وأولاده

وهؤلاء ينتظرون انتهاء أصحاب الفروض أولا ثم يقسم الباقي عليهم كما سنرى who are his men ''if we can translate as his uncle 'brother of father and his sons mean the cousins of the dead and brother from father and his sons ''also you can translate the Arabic post to know well ..we come know to your situation وَإِن كَانَتْ وَاحِدَةً فَلَهَا النِّصْفُ (الأبناء بنت وحيدة) البنت الواحدة لها النصف (والباقي لأقرب ذكرأو ذكور من جهة الأب تعصيبا if it was one daughter she gets the half and the rest is for the nearest man ''of those is mentiond'' example مثال: الميت مات عن : أبنة واحدة و ابن عم الأبنة نصيبها النصف فرضا والباقي لأبن العم تعصيبا lets say that that man is his cousin so she gets the half and he gets the rest ''and we should say that this man should be nearer than others ond others have nothing and you can know more translating this and reading

just remember that there are many other options like charity giving it to a mosque a school a poor relative so even though she gets half there are many other helpful things you can do with th rest of the money and remember to give half after debt are paid and not before
