Mother giving the son money in her life time

Q: My mother before she passed away did not clarify the money she gave to save my brother's house from being repossed as a gift or a loan, what happens? Does the money go into the estate because there was no confirmation what ther intention was when she gave him the money?

A: If she had given it to him he does not have to repay the estate.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
