This Gift is Permissible
Question:

A woman received her share of an inheritance after the death of her father and she gave it to her full brother, bearing in mind that she has eight children- male and female- is a gift such as this permissible in the Islamic Law- and what is the amount of the share of her children?
Answer:

If this woman who gave this gift was in perfect health, then it is permissible for her to dispose of her property as she wishes and the children do not have a right in this inheritance, as long as the mother is alive. But if she died, then his estate would be divided as required by the Islamic Law.
