I married someone whom my parents disapproved of. Because I was afraid of my father, I did not disclose this to them for 2 months, but then I told them the whole truth and was sorry for not being bold enough to tell them before. My husband is a practicing Muslim with the same ethnicity as me. My father now says he will disown me because of this and has forbidden my mother and sister from meeting me. He says that he does not recognize the marriage and he will not allow any of the children born to this marriage to meet him or my mom. Is this attitude of disowning and abandoning ones child acceptable in Islam? Is there any Qur'anic reference or Hadiths to support your argument?
