Share of inheritance among all his children and a wife?

Q:

I had a query regarding share of inheritance that a father had started a business and earned assets while he was working alone but later on his son joined the business aswell and prior to the death of the father, 90% of the assets had been transferred to the son. However he 3 daughters aswell other than a son. Furthermore many people that were associated with the father says that 90% of the assets that now has been in ownership of the son is earned by his father, not son and now the son is paralyzed and father had died.
So how should we divide the share among all his children and a wife?

A:

In the Name of Allah, the All-Beneficent, the All-Merciful.
Wa-Alaykum Assalam Wa Rahmtu-Allah,

If the father willingly gave the assets to his son then the assets belong to him and are not part of the fathers estate.
