Unmarried and Pregnant


Assalaamu alaykum,

My unmarried daughter is pregnant by a non-Muslim. Can we accept gifts from him for the baby? He would like to financially support the child. Is this allowed in Islam? He stated that he cannot embraze Islam as he does not want to upset his Mom. I want nothing to do with him but am making duah that Allah give him the hidayat to see the beauty of Islam and inshallah he will accept and become Muslim. May Allah always guide this site inshallah ameen.


wa `alaykum salam,

Your unmarried daughter made a grave mistake and must repent and ask Almighty to forgive her. As far as the child, the father can support his son and you should all pray for his heart to open for Islam.
