Answer
You can only do the sharing of inheritance after death and for now make a will that it will be done Islamically.

Usually the boy gets double the share of the girl and the wife gets 1/8.
The girls altogether have to share 2/3 of the estate among them selves. The boys will get double of that share each girl will get.
