How should I treat my father after a divorce that I felt was unfair to my mother

  1.  What is the exact statement your father made?


  1.  Did he mean the statement in general or for that particular time?


Please enquire from your father. 


As a child, it is compulsory upon you to be obedient and respectful to both parents. Allah says, 

وقضي ربك الا تعبدوا الا اياه وبالوالدين احسانا

(Translation: “And your lord has ordained for you that you not worship anyone but him and treat parents with kindness”)[1]

A child should not involve him/herself in parent’s disputes. He/she should use the attachment of love to bring about harmony between parents to the best of his/her ability. 

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
