Quran says us not to the kill children out of want as allah provides for us and the children....and alhamdulillah allah has provided us well...
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
i am a 23 yr old married girl...and am in quite a dilemma..
my doctor diagnosed me with a small fibroid in my body and told me to go thru a surgery to remove it,,,i got operated a couple of weeks back and alhamdulillah ,,,i am back to normal,,, the doctor adviced me not to get pregnant as i would be under heavy medication during the surgery and that might be harmful to the baby if i were pregnant,,,
Now the problem...i am having a few doubts to whether i am pregnant or not,,,i consulted my doctor yesday and told her about my doubts,...she told me that if i was actually pregnant now,,,thn it would have almost surely harmed the baby as i had been under very heavy drugs during the surgery and the early part of the pregnancy was very vital to the baby`s development.
She told me that if i were pregnant thn,,,the baby would be deformed almost surely,,,,bcos it was very risky...she told me to have it removed within the first six weeks ,...and already 4 weeks have passed..the other alternative was to wait for 3 months ...and c the growth of the baby and then if it was deformed to ...remove it by doing a dnc....since that would be a lot of mental trauma ....she advices me to remove the baby as soon as possible....
i am in quite a dilemma now....i have already miscarried once and i was really hoping for a baby...but i dont want to have a baby with disabilities...my mother father and husband say that if the pregnancy is confirmed i should remove using a very simple suction evacuation method.....
i consulted a man who was well versed in the islamic priniciples and shariah....he told me that there is nothing in the quran against my decision.,,,he said that the quran says us not to the kill children out of want as allah provides for us and the children....and alhamdulillah allah has provided us well...and thr is no need for that...
i only have my doctors advice to go by ..
if i am pregnant...it was defenitely unintentional...as i had no plans to get pregnant b4 i had recovered completely from the surgery...i dont know wat to do...whether to go by the doctors advice or not...i dont have much time either...just 2 weeks to decide...
pls let me know wat i shud do in this situation ...i am confused and watever ppl say...my decision will be final,..and i want to take the right decision....

Abort for fear of disability handicap
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 140:
Most surely they became losers, who, in their folly and ignorance killed their own children; and made unlawful what Allah had provided them as sustenance, falsely ascribing prohibitions to Allah. Surely, they went astray and were not at all rightly guided.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 151 (part):
You should not kill your children for fear of poverty; for We provide sustenance for you and will provide sustenance for them also.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 17 Surah Israa verse 31:
Do not kill your children for fear of want; for it is We Who provide for them, and for you as well. Indeed, their killing is a heinous crime!
Dear and beloved sister in Islam, just because one fears that the unborn baby in ones womb might be deformed or disfigured, one does not have the right to abort or terminate the life of that innocent unborn child.such a thing would be a manifest murder and a ghastly and an abomination of a sin in the Sight of Allah Subhanah.
Even if what the doctors diagnose is true and the unborn soul that resides in your womb is indeed born disfigured, the Lord Most Supreme will sustain and cherish it just as He sustains everything in creation.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 81 Surah Takweer verses 1-9:
1 When the sun (with its spacious light) is folded up;
2 When the stars fall losing their luster;
3 When the mountains vanish (like a mirage);
4 When the she-camels ten months with young are left untended;
5 When the wild beasts are herded together (in human habitations);
6 When the oceans boil over with a swell;
7 When the souls are sorted out (on the Day of Judgement);
8 When the female (infant) buried alive is questioned
9 For what crime she was killed;
Beloved Sister in Islam, if unfortunately you were to abort your unborn child for any reason whatsoever, we assure you in the name of Allah Subhanah, that on the Day of Judgment the Lord Most High will put life back into that innocent murdered soul and you will have to present an answer to the Lord All-Knowing for what crime was it killed!!!
As your brothers and sincere well-wishers in faith, we beg and beseech you to fear Allah Subhanah and abstain from this most heinous of sins. Keep your full trust and faith in Allah Subhanah and remain constant in your supplications towards Him to have mercy on you and your child, and to put not a trial on you bigger than you can bear. If Allah Wills to give one a sound child, none in creation can alter Allahs Decision; and if Allah Wills and Pleases to put the parents through a trial, none in creation can prevent Allah Subhanah from doing so!
Beloved Sister in Islam, we reiterate again, that to abort or kill ones unborn child just because one fears it might be born deformed would be an abomination of a sin in the Sight of Allah Subhanah.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
