    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1667/1667/M=1432) If your question is about the property that you have bought with your earnings then that is your sole property. There is no share of your brother and sister therein in your lifetime. And its division is not wajib as per the Shariah. However, if you want to distribute, it is not forbidden. You have full right you can give your sister and brother as much as you want.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
