View Full Version : Indulgence in Permarital Relations

Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullahee wa Barakatu

I know a woman whose daughter has indulged in premarital relations with a man, and now she is pregnant. The only male member of her immediate family is her father who is not supportive in any degree. The father of the child has not agreed on marriage or even to accept the child, posing problems for the girl. The society is bound to be hostile towards such a situation, and the woman's other daughters are likely not to get married, and the family name would lose its honor in society. At the moment, she is one month pregnant. What is to be done on Islamic lines? Looking forward to a prompt reply which would be http://www.gawaher.com/style_emoticons/default/i.gif according to Islamic law.

PS: Shariah is not in practice in her place of residence

What should the mother of the daughter do in this situation?

wa alaykum as Salaam warehmatullaahi wabaratuhu

I am not sure if someone will be able to promptly reply to the situation according to the shari'ah here. Best bet will be to check with the fatwa sistes available online, like islamqa...
