Marrying a pregnant woman

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Can I make nikaah with a lady who is 8 months pregnant with my child?


A: Yes. However, the child will not be yours i.e. not attributed to you. It will be attributed to its mother for all purposes, like inheritance etc.

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