    Can a woman pregnant through fornication get married?

    Answer By Ustadh Haroon Hanif

    Yes, a pregnant woman can get married and the marriage contract is valid. The preferred is that she marries the man whom she fornicated with and they may have sexual relations from the moment they are married. However, if she marries a different man, although the marriage is valid, they cannot have sexual relations until she has given birth to the child.
