Wife not ready for more children

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I am married age 43 wife age 36 and son age 13 . I was suffering from Leucoderma, also known as vitiligo, is a rare skin disease characterized by white spots and patches. Alhamdulillah , it is cured and no one was aware about this. After marriage I had told her that once I was suffering this disease . When my son was 2 years old he also suffered from this desease. Alhamdulillah, my son is also cured. But my wife is not ready for more kids. She is fearing that our next child may also suffer from this disease. I told her several times that all disease/situations are from Allah Ta’ala and he is only who give us cure. But she is still not ready. In this situation , should I force her for more children? We are having normal relation of husband and wife or I can do second marriage for more kids or I should make sabr?


A: I suggest that you discuss this matter with your wife.

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