Q: I have 4 children, 3 daughters and 1 son. They all are small kids, elder daughter is 8 years, son is 6 years, another is 4 years the last daughter is 11 months only. Now I became pregnant again around 40 days. My children are all weak health wise. Their bones are weak. My son got 5 times fractures, daughter got 2 times fractures. Doctors said they have genetic problem. May I do abortion for this reason. Will it be a great sin? Please help me out, I don’t want to anger Allah Subhanahu Ta’ala.


A: Avoid abortion. May Allah Ta`ala grant you pious children with good health.

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