Q: I’m 27 years old. I had two abortions under some circumstances which were absolutely sin and I keep asking forgiveness from Allah for it. Now, I’m married and have one baby girl of 3 years old and we want to have another baby but it’s not happening anymore. I am starting to get into depression as I’m scared that this is the punishment from Allah.
I have come to a conclusion that everybody has a number of kids allotted from Allah but since I have aborted two babies and I got one so now I may not have any baby in my life anymore, is this thought correct? But honestly when I had this baby girl the only thing I thought is that may be Allah forgave me that’s why he blessed us with his most precious gift – a girl.
Is there any kaffarra for these sins and that Allah bless me with more kids?
A: Beg Allah Ta`ala’s forgiveness and promise Him never to abort in the future. Allah will definitely forgive you,
Feed one poor person everyday, preferably the person that is closer to you.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
