Q: Me and my husband just came to know that I am expecting our third child and I am 7 weeks pregnant. This is a unplanned pregnancy and Alhumdulillah we were satisfied with our 2 kids and were taking precautions but with Allah Ta’ala’s will I am expecting our third one, but my husband wants me to terminate the foetus. He has worldly reasons time and money for better upbringing. I understand his anxiousness but I am really confused whether to follow my husband or to the laws of our creator Allah Ta’ala. Please advise.


A: It is not right for him to ask you to terminate this. He must be ashamed of himself to ask you to do these types of things. For further details refer to http://muftionline.co.za/node/9438

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