Question: Is it permissible for a father to give his wealth to his kids in his lifetime?

Answer: Yes, it is permissible for a father to gift his wealth to his kids during his lifetime. The father should maintain equality amongst his kids irrespective of their gender: males and females should be given equal.

It is undesirable for a person to give preference to one child over another, witout a valid reason.  Valid reasons would be, e.g. one is exalted in Deen in comparison to the others, or one is more in need than others. 

Furthermore,  by giving preference it should not be that harm is intended to anyone.

And Allah Knows Best
