Q: I heard in the Voice of Islam Radio in Makkah that
the children of a woman who does not offer Salah (Prayer)
are considered illegitimate children. What shall I do to my children who were born before my wife started to offer Salah? Are they considered illegitimate children?
Your children from your wife before she performed Tawbah (repentance to Allah) of abandoning Salah are considered (Part No. 20; Page No. 341) your children, as you thought your marriage was valid. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
