What you and your brother spent in the marriage of the two sisters it is voluntary contribution from you. Allah shall give you good reward! But, your sisters will not be deprived of inheritance; rather they will have their shares.

(2) The wealth and property will be distributed after the death of father. But, it is better to enquire about the matter at the same time writing all the details about the heirs.

Allah knows Best!
