Father selling some of his possessions to one of his sons

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Is it permissible for a man to sell something that he owns to one of his sons, knowing that some of them are able to make the purchase whilst others do not have anything and cannot make the purchase?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Answer:

Praise be to Allaah. 

It is permissible for a man to sell some of his property to one of his sons, if he (the son) is able to make the purchase, and he should deal with him as he would deal with a stranger. He should not give him any preferential treatment that would indicate that he favours him over his siblings.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
