Equality as one of the conditions validating a gift for sons
Q 1: I am an Egyptian teacher. My son died and now I have two daughters. I live in a residential building in
I bought a flat and then transferred its ownership to my two daughters in order to secure their life after my death. Is this permissible or does it contradict the Shari`ah law of inheritance?
What you did comes under
giving gifts to children, which is permissible on condition that they are given equal shares. For this the Prophet (peace be upon him) said,
Fear Allah, and be just to your children.
May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet, his family and Companions.
