Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

My family feels that I am breaking family ties by not attending birthday parties that are hosted by them and our friends.

They feel that I need to be present, even if I don’t participate in the rituals. They say that I should have lunch and leave. They even tell us that when we have a TV in our home, then what’s wrong with us attending the party?

I know that in Islam, it is permissible for a man to have more than one wife. My question is, “Is it recommended?” Also, is there any warning mentioned in the hadeeth for a man who does not treat his wives equally?

Interference of Grandparents in Upbringing

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

What rights do the paternal grandparents have over my children? They become exceptionally opinionated in my parenting and also try to dictate the time they spend with my child.

Due to not wanting to be disrespectful, I don’t say anything, but I would like to enquire the ruling on this matter.

Please advise.

Jazakallah
