(Fatwa: 653/616=L/1429)

If your father gifted the entire property to your mother and gave it in her possession then your stepmother will have no right in the same.

(2) No.

(3) No.

(4) You should conduct with her like a mother.

(5) One should write the name of real father in the place of father.

Allah (Subhana Wa Ta’ala) knows Best
