Does support and gifts for children take the same ruling as inheritance or there are special rulings for it? May Allah reward you.

النفقة والهبة للأولاد هل تجري عليها أحكام المواريث

Praise be to Allah, and may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family and his companions.

To proceed:

In response to your question, I say:


According to the Hanbali school of thought, gifts take the same ruling as inheritance because the obligatory justice of dealing with children necessitates that the male should have twice the share of a female. However the majority of scholars are of the opinion that rulings of gifts and presents contradict the rulings of inheritance in that justice necessitates that males and females should have equal shares. This view is what seems to be more correct.
And Allah knows best.
