No longer want to be in a haraam relationship

Q: I am single with a 10 month old baby from a Pakistani. We live together but I don’t want to get married because he is already married. I assisted him with his permit which allowed him to travel to Pakistan and he has now impregnated his wife. I asked him to leave as I no longer wish to be in a relationship and want to live my life as a pure Muslim woman. Is this wrong?


A: It is impermissible for a woman to be in contact with a strange man. Sincerely repent to Allah Ta’ala for the sin you have committed. We advise that you contact a local pious senior Aalim and explain to him your situation.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
