Forced Abortion

By Mufti Ebrahim Desai


Q.) There is a Muslim sister who is pregnant for few weeks. Her husband is also a Muslim and wants her to go for abortion. He is threatning that if she would not drop the pregnancy; he will divorce her. Sister is very upset.

Could you please let us know what is the ruling in Shariah about abortion. [Hafiz Amjad Saeed Imam, Atlanta, USA]


A.) If the pregnancy is 120 days or more, then the sister cannot abort. It it is less than 120 days and she is certain that the husband will divorce her if she does not accede to the husband's order, then she will be excused if she aborts in order to save her marriage. The husband will be sinful for that. And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.
