My name is Imrah, my brother got married 3 months ago to a wonderful woman algamdulillah. It seems that about 4 weeks ago my brother told the family that his wife is pregnant. We were all excited.
My brother's wife got rushed to hospital about 2 days ago and it seems that she was in labour, having a baby. My brother collapsed at the hospital as he was not expecting this situation to happen, being adamant that she was only 7 weeks pregnant, he was very shocked to hear that she was in labour having a baby. The even more shocker is that it is not his baby. She informed my brother that she was raped and was afraid to tell anyone as she comes from a very religious family. My brother is very recently married and did not know how to deal with this situation. She is a teacher and has never been left alone as she always had a maghram with her. She said it happened when she was at school and went to the shop across the road and two men forced her into a car and raped her. She did know that she was pregnant at 7 weeks and the doctor gave her options of what can be done. She did not want an abortion as it is against our beliefs in Islam
My question is how should my brother deal with this as he has made the decision to keep his wife as it was not her fault and accept the child as his own, he will legally adopt the child. His wife wanted to give the child up for adoption but she could not handle the thought of knowing that she had a child and gave her away.
Could I please have more insight of this and how we can go about this situation as my father is very angry and does not want to support my brother in his decision. My father feels that he should leave her and does not believe that she was raped.
I need more facts from and Islamic point of view to speak to my father about it.
Please help us.
