My husband and I have been saparated

Question: My husband and I have been saparated, divorce has taken place and we have a small child. My husband demands custody of the child and says he will take legal action.

Answer: The only action he can take is Shari’ action. In this instance he has no right to take away the child. The mother will have custody of the child. However the father will have to pay for all the expenses borne for bringing up the child. If the mother does not want the child then the father will have to take the child; he has no option.
