How do I handle someone trying to take my daughter away?

For three years it has just been me and my daughter. All of a sudden her "father" wants back in our lives. He's been absent for three years and now he comes back with saying that I'm only hurting her. My child has all the love she needs. She has me, her aunt and uncle, her grandparents, and multiple cousins who adore her. Why should he be able to come back? He tells me that he "deserves" to know her. Why? She never once asks about a father. She knows the concept of mom and dad but never says anything about why she does not have one. I feel it is unfair to allow a complete stranger to take my daughter away. What can I do about this?

Get a lawyer. It's unlikely he would be able to take your daughter away from you. He may be able to get visitation but then he also needs to pay child support. Definitely get yourself a lawyer who can help you figure out the next steps you need to make.
