as salaamu alaykum wa rahma tullaah,
i didn't know how to responed: one of our brothers isn't wanting to care for one of his wife's children anymore. the child belongs to her and her exhusband. it isn't the money. its the stress the child causes on the mother (with bad behavior, not listening etc.) which is causing stress on the marriage because the upsetness of the mother is going to everyone. it hurts the brother constantly seeing his wife in this state. but when the child isn't in the home the mother is at ease and the house becomes at ease as well. i asked does the child have any mental disabilies or something to this matter; no was the answer. our brother wants to send the child to the father (who is a muslim) but the mother doesn't want that.
i ask of each of you to help in this matter. and please give proof
