Islam/Adopted father's gift

Question
Dear brother,

Two years ago , I married a girl who is adopted of a family . I don't take (insaallah) any money or asset from that family during my marriage . Later on the girl's adopted father gives her a ready flat  for her . The flat belongs to her name . In this moment I have two questions :

1) Is is permissible in islam to take any gift from adopted father , if he (the father) has his brother or sister(but has no children) in his own family ?

2) As a husband , can I receive or use that flat/gift ?

Waiting for kind reply .. ..

Answer
Bismillahir-Rahmanir-Rahim (In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful)

Assalmalaikum

Dear Brother,

May Allah reward you for the good deed you have done.
There is no harm to accept the gift and utilise it as the intention of your heart is clear.
However you need to take permission of your wife to utilise it.

In islam gift is always allowed. However the adopted girl cannot have any share in the inheritance of the property but can accept gifts.
