Relations With The Daughter Who Married A Christian

My daughter married a kitabi (Christian), against my and her father’s wishes. They have been married for five years now. I have a grandchild (one year old) by her and another baby girl is due this month. I was communicating with her up to the birth of her son a year ago. Then I stopped all interaction with her because I felt I had given her enough time to come to her senses. My husband and my eldest daughter also stopped talking to her shortly thereafter. I would like to ask if this is fair to my grandchildren, should I have contact with them? Even if not that often, maybe they should see their grandparents now and then? Am I committing a sin by seeing them? Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Making A Trust From One’s Legacy

I wish to establish a special trust for the benefit of my children. I intend to make a will with the conditions that all the property left over by me after my death shall not be sold or inherited but the rental income from the properties be distributed between my sons and daughters in the ratio of 2:1. According to this will, the daughters can benefit during their lifetime only and the offspring of my sons will be the only beneficiaries after my sons’ death. Finally in the event there are no more heirs from the family, the whole property be given for public cause. Can such a will be made? Is this proposal in accordance with the Shari‘ah? Please advise.
