We comitted fornication. Neither of us are married but we intend to get married immediately after the birth of the baby so is it ok for us to give the baby his name ? If not, why?

Salam Sister,

‘Call them by (the names of) their father’s, which is more just in the sight of Allah...’ (Al-‘Ahzab: 5)

An illegitimate child has nothing to do with his parents’ actions; and has all the same rights as any other Muslim - male or female.

May Allah (Subhana wa Ta'ala) grant you forgiveness; and give happiness to you and your family for all of your lives.
