Q: My friend got a non-Muslim girl pregnant. They broke up and he is wondering if she is allowed to abort the child? He is in 4th year university and she is in 1st year. Her parents dislike Muslims and he has no job.


A: How can you ever think of terminating life. Doesn’t this amount to murder?

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