Nikaah after an illicit relationship

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Musa and zainab are involved in illicit relationship for couple years, by the occurrence of the days and nights their relation became more solid because now zainab fell pregnant. To get rid from this shame the two families decided to get them married. What will be the hukam of this nikkah according to shaafi and hanafi mazhab and what will be the solution to this matter (for these people to be saved from this shame Islamically)?


A: It is valid.

( وينعقد ) ملتبسا ( بإيجاب ) من أحدهما ( وقبول ) من الآخر ( وضعا للمضي ) لأن الماضي أدل على التحقيق ( كزوجت ) نفسي أو بنتي أو موكلتي منك ( و ) يقول الآخر ( تزوجت و ) ينعقد أيضا ( بما ) أي بلفظين ( وضع أحدهما له ) للمضي ( والآخر للاستقبال ) أو للحال فالأول الأمر ( كزوجني ) أو زوجيني نفسك أو كوني امرأتي فإنه ليس بإيجاب بل هو توكيل ضمني (الدر المختار 3/ 9)
