Help adulterous woman and her baby.
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Salam aleykum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatahu
I would like to know whether it is haram ( prohibited ) to help to lady who delivered a baby in zina? The lady got pregnant from local emirati married man & was hoping he would help her with money but unfortunately he is escaping her , doesn't answer her phone calls, & this lady has no one to help her , she has no even money to feed baby to buy pampers. So i heart about it & feel really pity on this baby & i want to help her baby monthly at least for food money.

Help adulterous woman and her baby
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
As grave as the sin of zina (fornication or adultery) may be in the Sight of Allah Subhanah, there is nothing in Shariah Law which discourages or prohibits the believers from helping or supporting the woman/or and her baby. If one does so only for the Sake of their Lord, one can be assured of a great reward in His Majestic Presence on that Inevitable Day of Judgment.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
