Q: I was asked by a female Muslim friend who is married to a Christian/Atheist, to give Azaan for their baby they expecting. Please can I get some guidance on the Islamic aspects of this?

Is the baby Muslim?

Do I have any obligations towards the baby etc?

Bismillaah

A:

1. Their nikaah is invalid. Hence they are living in haraam and zina.

2. Muslim.

3. No.

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