Answer

(Fatwa: 292/88=TL/1430)

 

(1) The lineage of the child will not be established with him.

(2) If the person has repented to Allah sincerely and he feels regretful then he will not be responsible for the sins commited by the child:

ولاتزر وازرۃ وزر أخری (الآیۃ)

But, if it is possible for him, he should try to covert the child to Islam to protect him from the humility of the hereafter.
