The death of one's father and his mother's marriage to his uncle who gave him his name and supported him

Q 2: A Bedouin father, who had no identity card, died leaving a child and a wife, who was the mother of the child. The mother married the father’s brother, who supported the child and educated him. (Part No. 20; Page No. 376) He made an identity card for the child in his name, not in the name of his father. There is no problem regarding inheritance. Is there any wrong with this act according to the Shari`ah (Islamic law)?

A: It is not permissible for him to be attributed to other than his own father, not even to a paternal uncle who married his mother after his father’s death, even if this uncle has raised him and supported him. This is so according to the generality of texts of the Qur’an and the Sunnah in this regard. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
