Q: My wife is expecting and the test result shows that the foetus which is 15 weeks old has a chromosome disorder trisomy 18 which means that either there may be a miscarriage or if the child is born, the baby will be having several physical defects and may not survive long. There is no risk to the mother’s life in general. Please advise what should be our approach.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
