Q. A 20 year old girl left the fold of Islam and is unmarried. Is the father still responsible for her maintenance?
A. A father will remain responsible in providing maintenance for his daughter until she marries even if she leaves the fold of Islam or she does not share the same religion. (Badaai-us-Sanaai 4/36)
