Husband forcing the wife to take birth control pills

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If a woman is on birth control, is she allowed to stop taking them without the consent of her husband? She would love more kids but he says no. 


A: It is wrong of him to impose in this manner. It is her right. And stopping her from her right is extortion and impermissible. She has all the right to stop taking preventative measures.

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