Q: I am a mother of 3 children, aged 5 years, 4 years, and the youngest is 6 months. I am 6 weeks pregnant now. My husband is working abroad and normally comes every 3 months. As my kids are small, its hard for me to manage and I am also feeling weak. I want to go for abortion. What is the ruling? Is it allowed to go for abortion considering the above facts?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
