Question: A father had many children. Unfortunately, all of his children except one refused to take care of him. The father had a piece of land that he pawned for money. At one point, he said to the child who took care of him: “Redeem the land and have it for yourself”. Therefore, the child went and redeemed the land. Not long after, the father dies. Then came the other children claiming that the land should be divided amongst them. The child who took care of the father, objected by saying that the father had given the land to him but his other siblings argued by saying the gift is invalid because the agreement is between the father and the child only without any witnesses from the other children. The child not only lost his land but also the money used to redeem it. Is this decision correct? Is it true that the gift is invalid without any witnesses from the other children?
