This study aims to address the issue of children who came from adultery, and shows how to preserve their legitimate rights.
The importance of this issue is reflected by discussing the remedial measures of the most important consequences of the crime of adultery, which was warned by Sharia, and considered as a major sin and a crime that threaten the society and its safety.
The study also showed the interest of Islamic Sharia in lineage as one of the five essentials which was protected and maintained by Sharia’s provisions.
The study also showed that the scholars agreed to the annexation of the son of adultery to his mother once delivered.
In case the unmarried woman got pregnant after committing adulteryand the adulterer wants to have the son’s annexation to his side, the scholars provided three opinions.
This study adopts the view of the majority of scholars which says that the son of adultery does not annex to the adulterer, even if he annexed him.
