Does an illegitimate child enter Paradise?

Q 6: Do illegitimate children enter Paradise if they obey Allah or not? Are they considered sinful or not?

A: An illegitimate child bears no sin by virtue of the Zina (adultery) of his mother and the man who involved in this sin with her; this is not the child's deed but theirs, according to Allah's Saying, He gets reward for that (good) which he has earned, and he is punished for that (evil) which he has earned. Allah also says, ...and no bearer of burdens shall bear the burden of another. An illegitimate child is like anybody else; if they obey Allah, perform good deeds and die while embracing Islam, they will enter Paradise. If they disobey Allah and die while in a state of Kufr (disbelief), they will enter Hellfire. If they mix good deeds with evil deeds and die while embracing Islam, their destiny will be determined by Allah; He might forgive them if He wants, or punish them if He wants, and then let them (Part No. 20; Page No. 396) enter Paradise by His Favor and His Mercy. As for the Hadith that was narrated about illegitimate children being deprived from Paradise, it is a Hadith Mawdu` (fabricated Hadith). May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
