Whether daughter is entitled to a share in father's property arises only after his death
There is no difference between agricultural and non agri land for the purpose getting your share But during life time of your father you cannot claim for a share

You have an absolute right on the assets of your father but your entitlement commences upon the demise of your father. Mohammedian law has clearly discribed/prescribed the maner in which property has to be divided.
As such your right is absolute
