Purchasing a house on one’s brother’s name

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I earned money when I was young and bought a house on my brother’s name. Now my brother is telling that this is his house and he will not give it to me.


A: If you have not given him the house then it is wrong for him to claim it for himself.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
