Q: A man takes money from his father who was rich enough to open a business. After the business settled, he returned the money to his father. Can his other brothers and sisters claim that business as their inheritance or does this business belong to him only?
A: This was taken as a loan from the father and the loan was settled. So this is his own business.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
