Dealings of a divorced father with his child

Home / Offspring / Dealings of a divorced father with his child


I am a divorcee living in a non Muslim land, and I have a three year old child from that marriage. Due to various reasons, his father is not a good influence for her. He never visits her because he lives in a different city and he rarely calls to speak to her. How should my behavior be towards him? Should I let him speak to my daughter? Please advice me. I am working on the means to make hijrah, bi idhnillah.

Zaynab El-Kateb:

She cannot prevent him from talking to his daughter, he is her father, but she can give him advice in a kind way, and sit with her daughter during the call to be able to clarify or straighten any wrong word she might hear from him.
