Q: My wife is pregnant with 14 weeks but we dont want to keep this child as we have already one small child of 1 year. Should we go fot abortion? And if we do abortion then what khaffara do we have to give?


A: Abortion is a glossy word for murdering. Can a sensible parent ever think of murdering his own child.

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