My husband is Muslim (I am not) and he has decided to fast this Ramadan. He hasn’t fasted in years so I want to encourage and support him in what ever way I can. Can someone possibly help me with some advice on how I can support him better? Thank you in advance ❤️

Worried

My ex has a past DV and he abused me during my pregnancy. I’m going back to work soon and worried to allow my baby unsupervised with him . Would I be silly to do this? Have I made the right choice to allow my mum to care for him?
