Q: I have three daughters by three caesareans. In last caesarean there were some complications in last few days. And now I got pregnant again for the fourth time surprisingly. My husband doesn’t want to continue this pregnancy because of my health problems. I have so many health problems as I got knee joint problem so I can’t read my Salaah standing. So we are asking that is it permissible to abort this baby, its just starting pregnancy. Please answer me soon.


A: These are not sufficient grounds to murder an innocent little helpless child.

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