  3. Respected sir,
    This is with reference to my case that i have been married for past 3 years now.I have one daughter 1 month old my wife left the house on petty issues with my daughter and is staying with her sister and brother in law house for past 2 weeks.I have few questionaires what legal rights do i have as i havent divorced my wife nor i have refused my wife regarding the expense but she never let me see my daughter and is still doing so.Please answer my few queries would be obliged
    1) My wife is staying with her sister and brother in law in a rented house is it legal from islamic point of view as her brother in law is NAMEHRAM as per quranic law.
    2) She is a complete housewife having no regular source of income.
    3) Her parents are no more in this world they pastaway and the only person in pakistan is his mamu who barely calls them even on oaccasions.
    4) What chances do i have in taking custody for my daughter on the above mentioned grounds are they self sufficient to validate my case in taking custody of my daughter (45 days old) almost.
    Would be obliged for your support.Please do also send me you personal contact number if i have to proceed on with the case and what chances do i have to see my daughter.
    Will court permit me to see my daughter whenever i want as i would not be stepping foot in my sister in law house some neutral venue where i can see my daughter or do i have right to bring her home by registering and FIR against my sister in law and her husband for kidnapping and abduction of my daughter.
    As legally she is still my wife i have yet divorced her neither interested in doing so.

    • your wife’s brother in law is not “Namahram” for her. yet your baby is of very tender age, no chance that court will handover the custody of minor female child to you.
      yes you can apply to the court for permanently meeting with your minor daughter in court premises or any other venue with the permission of court.
      you should not register any FIR against your in-laws
