Q: My husband’s grandfather signed over a piece of property to my husband when he was a child. The property is in his name in all the official paperwork. Is this property rightfully his or would he have to share it with his brothers and sisters? We would like to build a school for young girls on this piece of property, but all of his family members are objecting and would not like to build the school there. They want to sell the land and share the money. Does he have a right to build the school or does he have to share with his brothers and sister? We also have 4 children too.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
