Is it ok if father wants to distribute his property by giving equal share to all his children (i.e. 3 daughters and 1 son). Because earlier the son was not staying with his parents. but now since he (the son) has got financial difficulty of paying all the expenses, he has come again to stay with his parents.

If distribution is done during the life time of the parent, then all children should have equal share. And if the distribution would be after death, then the shar`ee way should be adopted: Each daughter 1/5 The son 2/5 Please note that spouse also inherit. So you may ask when necessary.
