Aslaam alaikum, Sheikh Hisham Kabbani
I got married to my girlfriend. I wanted to marry her anyway, but there was more of a reason to marry her at the time, as she was pregnant with our first child. I met my wife at a party. I didn’t think at the time she would be my wife. I am aware that all these things are haram. How will this affect our future? Is my marriage haram? Is my first child also haram? I do pray and I am on the deen. My wife doesn’t really take much interest in Islam. she did try by learning the Qu’ran and she started wearing hijab,but she has fallen weak again. I try to be patient with her to give her time. Sheikh pray for us and my two children, [private].
Sorry for troubling you with such a long enquiry.
Jazakallah Sheikh, may Allah raise you higher and higher.
wa `alaykum salam,
Make istighfar 300 times daily, and Allah (swt) is Merciful.
