Q: How to deal with a dominating family? Basicaly my mother is always undermining a divorcee daughter and always ignoring what she enjoys etc. No respect for her. etc. How do we build the ties? The daughter has moved to her own place but the problems are still there and it’s damaging the relationship. The daughter tried talking to her siblings and the parents but it’s ignored. In Islam it’s important to have family ties etc. what’s the best approach?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
