Imam Muhammad رحمة الله عليه was asked : The nikah of a man who lives in the east and a woman who lives in the west is contracted through a letter. The distance between the two places is such that it cannot be traversed in under six months. If the wife gives birth six months after the nikah (the shortest period of pregnancy) will the child be legitimate?

He replied that the child will be legitimate. When asked as to how could this be possible, he replied, "Yes! We do believe in the miracles of the auliya (pious.)"
