Wa alaykum salaam

– The decision of selling the property was solely taken by you and your mother and thats not considered valid in sharia. You had to involve your sisters as well. So according to the sharia their share has to be paid which is as below :

. If total amount of properties is 20,000,000 to be shared into 5…. 4,000,000 each. Boys share will be 2 parts so 8, 000,000. You need to give 4,000,000 to each sister.

Regarding the loans given to the
husband: because the money belongs to the daughters, they have to agree to offset the husbands loans via this money, if they dont agree, then they need to be given their right.

Regarding the expenses made for the daughters: if the expenses are clearly documented and it was an expense which they had agreed upon, then it can be deducted from their amount
