Denying the baby being born after less than nine months

Q: I work in Saudi Arabia. During my vacation I went home in Rajab 25th, 1404 A.H. And I returned to work after four months. In Rajab 25th, 1405 A.H., my wife gave birth to a child. I doubt the legitimacy of this child. Please advise.

A: The period of pregnancy in your question is nine months minus five days, and the minimum term of pregnancy after which a woman gives birth and the baby can survive is six months. The newborn is therefore your legitimate child, and you should overlook such doubts that Satan casts on you. May Allah protect us from Satan. (Part No. 20; Page No. 327) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet, his family and Companions.
