If you die before you inherit, does inheritance die with you?
If there's 5 siblings and one dies the four remaining siblings would get the inheritance correct?
There is one sibling that passed away before inheriting any money but somehow the executor had divided it between 6 siblings but that's 6th sibling was dead Pryor to inheriting anything there is no will know nothing.
So the one that died prior to inheriting anything is he allowed by law to receive anything this is right there

How would the one who died receive anything? Inheritance are for those living survivors and the remaining that would have gone to the 6th would probably be divided up among the other five. If that 6th had a child I suppose the other five could agree for it to go to his child.

It depends on the wording of the will, but I would think that the inheritance belonging to the dead sibling would go to his or her heirs, meaning his or her children or other relatives.

Depends on local laws and how the will is written.
Its possible that the 6th siblings inheritance could be divided among their children/heirs

Not always. Sometimes it goes to your children (the children of the dead sibling) or it goes to your estate (the estate of the dead sibling) and then someone inherits it from you (the dead sibling).

The ONLY way for heirs of a deceased person that dies before the person that named them in a will is for the person leaving the will to explicitly state that the share goes to the heirs of the deceased. Otherwise, the inheritance is shared by the surviving heirs.

WHERE? It matters - this is neither Federal nor International Law.
And is there a Will?
I have NO idea what "so the one that died prior to inheriting anything is he allowed by law to receive anything this is right there" means.
Do you have a neighbor who speaks English and could repost this for you?

The depends on the terms of a will that may have been in effect and/or the probate laws where you are.

That is probably the case but if a sibling has their own kids, depending how the will or trust is written (if there is one), the spouse or the off spring of the sibling might get that sibling's share of the inheritance,

It depends on the will and how things are worded.
Also, there is timing: if the person who set up the will before the sibling died, died before the sibling but before the will was probated, then the sibling is considered to be included in the inheritance (it's part of the sibling's estate).

First the person who created the will has to die first
