Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: One month I had to terminate my pregnancy at 27 weeks because the baby’s brain was not formed properly and he can be fully handicapped both mentally and physically and blind and there is no treatment for these born problems. The doctor suggested us to terminate it. But I regret now. What should I do now, please tell me?


A: Seriously make taubah and resolve never to do such a thing in the future. Terminating pregnancy is a sophisticated way of murdering an innocent sinless child.

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