When the other sharers have received consideration and agreed to sell their share how can they now go back from their promise.
In Muslim law the moment a person dies his property gets automatically divided as per Muslim law. His sons and daughters have their shares. Thereafter the share that came to your father is divisible after his death. From your question it is no clear about ur father. If you feel that the arrangement is illegal you may file a suit for partition
