Refer to your answer: In the case of khula the iddah is 1 menstrual cycle. In case you are going to remarry, the custody of your daughters will be with their father. Question is: If the father is incapable of taking care of da maintenance of these 2 step daughters,what are the options for this woman? Should she take dem wid her or she shud leave them at her parents’ house?
The children are the responsibility of their father, the step father is not enjoined with their care. If he is doing this voluntary, this is charity for him! If he doesn’t want them, she should send them to her parents if they are willing to accept them!
