Maintenance and custody of children

Question ID: 29607


Please give me the fatwa on how much maintenance should I give for my children and what are the laws of custody in Islam. I have three children. Son 8 years old, daughter five years old and the other daughter is two years old.

At what age do the children come to me and when can I see them?

Please make dua that Allah makes this journey easy for me.
