QUESTION

Since the daughter of zinaa does not have any relationship with her biological father, can he marry her when she gets older?

ANSWER by Shaykh Wasee Allaah 'Abbaas, lecturer at the Ka'bah, instructor at Umm Al-Quraa University in Makkah

The daughter of zinaa has no relationship at all with her biological father, no inheritance or anything else, except with regards to marriage. If there is any chance that the woman may be his daughter, then marrying her is prohibited. Therefore it is not permissible for the fornicator to marry a woman who is or may be his biological daughter from fornication.

It has been reported that Imaam Ash-Shaafi'ee, may Allaah have Mercy on him, permitted this. However, this is a weak opinion and it is not given any consideration.
