Property distribution during one's lifetime

Q: We are 10 siblings (5 brothers and 5 sisters). Our parents are both living alhamdulillah. One younger brother and two sisters are still unmarried. Our elder two brothers are already living apart and now the situation has arisen that we want to divide the property among all and let the younger brother and sisters get their share so that thy can construct something to live in... Kindly inform us how much share each brother and sister will get and our parents also... The property is worth around 1 crore rs.

A: It is preferable to make an equal distribution among the children.

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