Calculating Child Maintenance

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askmufti.co.za
Q: How is maintenance calculated for one child?

A: The father has to pay the following expenses related to his children:

Food; necessary clothing and bedding according to the different seasons; medicine and treatment; madresa and school fees subject to his choice of madresa and school.
Since the above expenses vary from place to place, as well as time to time. The Shariah has not fixed a specific. It is left to the discretion of the parents.
