Weekly Q & A

Question and Answer:

Q. My husband and I have adopted two children. We are now divorcing due to certain issues. Are the Islamic custodial rulings for adopted children the same as biological children?

(Question published as received)

A. The general rights and laws of custody (Haqq-ul-Hadhaanah) does not apply to adopted or fostered children. There are no fixed principles governing the rights of custody of adopted children in the case of divorce between spouses. Therefore, in this regard, the couple should discuss the matter and reach a mutual agreement in the best interest of the children. (Shaami 3/556)
