Marrying a man with child from zina


Salaam. I wish to marry a man who admitted that he fathered a child out of wedlock. His immediate family know but it has remained a secret. He has repented and is of good character. I am happy to move forward, should I share his secret with my parents? Jzk


As-Selamu ‘Aleykum,

I would definitely not tell them that your fiance had a haram relationship and a son from such relationship.

However, in principal, marrying an adulteress or fornicator is prohibited in the Shari’ah.
