Is it permissible to disinherit a daughter and give the whole property to the son?

Is it permissible to disinherit a daughter and give the whole property to the son?

Answer

This is prohibited [haram] and legally impermissible. It is considered wrongfully and unjustly consuming another's property. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him and his family) warned us against this and considered it a major sin. He said, "The flesh that grows from unlawful food deserves Hellfire as its abode."
