To indicate possession of something we say "I have a car", "I have a bungalow" etc.
In Gujarati we use preposition "-ના પાસે"
In 
Gujarati such sentences are formed as follows :-
Noun or pronoun with preposition "-ના પાસે"
noun
form of “to be” i.e.હોવું(hovuM) as per tense and

gender, multiplicity of noun
મારા પાસે (mAraa pAse )
ગાડી (gADI)
હતી(hatI)


I have a car -> 
મારા પાસે ગાડી છે  (mAraa pAse gADI Che)
You have 10 cars -> 
તારા પાસે ૧૦ ગાડીઓ છે (tAraa pAse 10 gADIo Che)

I had a car -> 
મારા પાસે ગાડી હતી  (mAraa pAse gADI hatI)


Anup will have watch -> અનુપ પાસે ઘડીયાળ હશે (anup pAse ghaDIyAL hashe )

I do not have car -> 
મારા પાસે ગાડી નથી  (mAraa pAse gADI nathI)
I did not have car ->  મારા પાસે ગાડી નહોતી  (mAraa pAse gADI nahotI)

We also use "to have" to indicate relationships.
e.g. I have 2 brothers. I have 3 maternal uncles. etc.

In such sentences in Gujarati we use preposition "To" with noun or pronoun.
e.g.
I have 2 brothers -> મને બે ભાઇઓ છે (mane be bhAio Che)
He has three paternal uncles -> એને ત્રણ કાકાઓ છે (ene traN kAkAo Che)
Ravi had 2 kids -> રવીને બે બાળકો હતાં (ravIne be bALako hatAM)
He does not have brother -> એને ભાઈ નથી (ene bhAI nathI)
Sita did not have any relatives -> સીતાને કોઈ સંબંધીઓ નથી   (sItAne koI saMbaMdhIo nathI )
