Q: My parents are elderly and live in
with my wife and daughters. I would like to bring my wife and daughters to live with me in
as I am entitled to do. If I bring them here, will I be considered negligent to my parents, (Part No. 25; Page No. 256) given that I can only travel to them once every two years. What should I do concerning my wife's lawful rights if she stays with my parents in
Is it enough to hire a maid for them instead of my wife to serve them? Please advise, may Allah bless you, protect you, grant you health and reward you.

The aim will be achieved, which is taking care of your parents. May Allah enable you to take care of them more.May Allah grant us success.
