Should she Give the House back to her Mother although Afraid of Brothers` Injustice upon Division of Estate?

After my father had passed away, the estate was divided according to the provisions of the Jordanian Law although some of the heirs have unlawfully seized a large portion of it. Since things weren`t going alright between my brothers and my mother, she-with the consent of her big brother, my sisters, and her son in law who is a lawyer-decided to register the house in my name so that I keep it as a continuous charity after her death. After four years, things have changed a lot. My brothers forced her to take the house back. She claimed that she wanted to register it in the name of all the heirs. Should I give it back to her although it is likely that she gives it to my sisters? Or, should I register it in the name of the heirs and hers? This is because I don`t wish to incur Allah`s wrath or my mother`s for all I want is my lawful share.

Should he Register the Apartments his Children Built in their Names?

I have a piece of land on which four residential apartments are built. Each of my three children has built an apartment from his own money, however, two of them resided in their apartments. I rented the third apartment and took the rent to spend on myself and their mother and I have been taking that rent since 1997. Years passed and I grew older and older. I want to meet my Lord (Allah) with a clear conscience, so I don`t wish to wrong any of them. Should I register the three apartments in their names or keep them in my name to be divided after my death as part of the inheritance? It is worth pointing that I have three sons and six daughters.
