A gift to the only child

Q 1: I have one daughter only and own a house of two floors. I have brothers also, but I want to give my daughter a part of the house. (Part No. 16; Page No. 214) Is this permissible or would this grant affect the rights of the inheritors and thus be regarded as Haram (prohibited)?

A: There is no harm in giving a part of the house to your daughter if you do not intend by this to exclude the rest of the inheritors and if the grant is concluded immediately and your daughter possesses it and has the right to dispose of it, because this is a kind of donation. On the other hand, it is not permissible to bequeath this in your will because no bequest must be made to an heir. It was authentically reported from the Prophet (peace be upon him) that he said: No bequest must be made to an heir. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
