Assalam o Alkum,

Dear Respectful Brother Mufti,

I committed Zinna, sexual relationship with a woman just for one night. After that night the woman became pregnant and it has been determined that the child is mine. Alhamdulillah I have realized that I made a big mistake and i have repented to Allaah. Now as far as the child is concerned, what is the Sunnah way of raising the child. The woman is not Muslim and I want to raise the child as a Muslim. Would it be allowable for me to take full custody of the child and raise him/her as a Muslim.. Or should I allow the child to live with the mother? And what should I do since the family is not allowing me to have full custody of the child, as far as Islam and the Sunnah is involved.

Make sincere repentance. Take total custody of the child. Present Islaam to the woman. If she accepts, then you may leave the child with her.
