Having many children

Q: In Islam, it is recommended to have many kids and offspring, but, the increase in population is also a sign of the coming of the day of judgement, so does this not contradict? A good command which represents the coming of bad days?


A: There is no contradiction.

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