What do I do islamically, should I allow my husband to see our daughter



I am a single mom to 4 kids. I got married in 2016 to a man I thought it was legal at the time, I had 3 kids from a previous marriage he took them on and everything was fine well in the marriage I was suspicious but sweept it under the carpet when I was 3 months pregnant I found out my partners name was fake and age and that he got told in 2015 to leave the Uk, I felt betrayed not having family of my own, I tried to question and seek answers he told me to get rid of baby after a couple of months. I left and moved I had my 4th child that due to neglect at birth ended up with server brain damage and is parshly blind and deaf This man has never given me a dowry and cannot provide due to his situation if I found out he was illegal in the beginging. I would have never married. He does not want to give me divorce and my daughter has never seen him in 2 years as he is not willing to provide for her. What do I do islamicly and do I let him see her and how do I no it’s not all part of his plan to get papers?


Waalykum salam
Thank you for your question

Sorry to hear about your daughters situation.. Allah bless her and you for taking care of her and saving her life Alhamdulillah.

So, it is Islamically his right to his child. But ofcourse you can stop all the illegal
Use of this biological right that he has on her.

I’m not in position to further advice on your country’s right, laws, etc
But I believe you can stop all misuse of his right in the child. You may also want to let him see her under supervision if need be.

InshaAllah all goes well
