Adultery with a kaafir

Q: If a Muslim woman bears a child of non Muslim man due to adultery will she be a kaafir? She is planning to keep the baby and make him a Muslim and she wants to make tawbah. Will she enter Jannah?


A: She should sincerely repent to Allah Ta’ala for the serious sin she has committed and make a firm resolve that she will never ever commit this sin in the future. Similarly, she should sever all contact with the non-Muslim man. If she repents and reforms her life, Allah Ta’ala will forgive he. Though this is a very serious offence and major sin she has committed, however this will not take her out of the fold of Islam.

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