Refusing to make nikaah

Q: Me and my, don’t no what to call him, but we did zina and I got pregnant. We didn’t end up having nikaah. He didn’t want to have it with me still after I had the baby. I’m giving him hints that I want it pure and clean and he does not want to. We are both Muslims, grew up both in Muslim households and I’m just lost. I don’t know what to do.

A: If he does not want nikaah then he does not respect the law of Allah Ta`ala for which he is then not worthy of respect. So abandon him, and make taubah to Allah Ta`ala and continue with life.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
