(Fatwa: 520/H=324/H)


If he (father) has given 2 acres of land and a portion of house to his daughters as gift and did not give the property in their custody (Qabza) in his lifetime, then this gifting will be void and after his death the entire property will be divided among all heirs according to their shares prescribed in Shariah.


Now, tell us what is the order of death of the father and the daughters i.e. who died first and who died later. Moreover, whom the father and the daughters left at the time of their death as their heir? Preferably, get the detail of all heirs, the dead ones and their relatives written down by any Aalim.

Allah knows Best!
