1.without acceptance and possession gift is not valid.
4. will executed in favor of daughter, if not according to Muslim law is not valid.
5. In the given circumstances donor can cancel the gift.

In Mohd., law oral gift can be made but gift must be accepted. In your case gift is not accepted so it is void.
Will should be in accordance with the Mohd., law otherwise it is will be invalid.
X can cancell the gift, because it is not yet completed in accordance with the mohd., law.

the essential ingredient of gift is acceptance if u r correct in saying that the gift is not accepted by the doonee then it cant be a valid gift, and if ur will is correct according to the muslim law means that excluding certain share in the entire property, then u can go for probate.

In your case under the Mohammdean Laws this gift of your property is not accepted.Hence it becomes null and void.However your Will to certain extends is valid.You will have file petition for Probate.
