Answer

(Fatwa: 2296/1886=B/1429)

 

It is mentioned in Hadith:

اتقوا اللہ واعدلوا بین أولادکم

Fear Allah and do justice with your children (in giving gifts).

This Hadith says if a father wants to distribute his property in his life among his children he should give equal shares to everyone whether son or daughter. It is sin not to give equal share to daughters without any valid reason. It is better to evaluate the house and distribute it equally between each and give their shares in their possession.
