Subject: what is the status of this child?
Question: A shia boy has had a relationship with a sunni girl, the girl has given birth and the boy has registered the child has his child. Both are not married. What is the status of the child? Is the boy obliged to marry the girl? the family of the girl have no issues with shia and sunni they just want the boy to marry the girl.
Answer: 1.If they were having a Mut'a relationship, then the child is legetimate, but the relationship was sinful, the child will be illegetimate. Such child will not be entitled to inheritence from the father.

2. It is good to marry the girl if she is not habitual of sexual sinning, atleast for the sake of the child. The Shia boy should seek forgiveness as she has to, and he should teach her how to follow Ahlul Bayt (AS).
