Muslim man raised his child as a Christian

I was born a Muslim. I am married to a Roman Catholic woman according to both Muslim and Christian rites. We have a son, but he is following Christianity. I feel guilty about my son following Christianity. At this juncture, it is very difficulty to make him understand as he is grown up and he is 16 years of age. Kindly let me know whether Islamic Law agrees to our way of living.

There can be no doubt that what you have done is wrong and contrary to Islamic Law. When a Muslim man marries a Christian woman, it is under the understanding that their children will be raised as Muslims.

What you have to do now is call your son to Islam in the best and kindest possible manner. Take him to the Islamic centers in your locality and arrange to find someone who can convince him of the truth. It is your duty to call your wife to Islam as well in a kindly manner.

I advise you to move from your place of residence to an Islamic area if you can.
