What is the Islamic ruling in carrying out prenatal diagnosis to avoid hereditary diseases that may lead to a serious disability in the child? Is it allowed in this case to terminate the pregnancy?
As-Salamu `Alaykum wa Rahmatu Allah wa Barakatuh. I would like to ask you about the Islam's stance on the possibility of male pregnancy through scientific process. I can't find any Islamic comment regarding this matter. So, your answer on this issue will be highly appreciated. Thank you!
Dear Sheikh, As-Salamu `alaykum wa Rahmatu Allah wa Barakatuh. What are the Islamic rulings pertaining to the funeral of the stillborn?
As-Salamu `alaykum. My wife is pregnant. Doctors say that the baby, (she is six months gestation), will be disabled. Is it Halal for my wife to abort this baby now to avoid suffering? Jazakum Allah khayran.
As-Salamu `alaykum. Is there any special d u`a' or dhikr I could recite during my pregnancy so that the baby would be safe, well and a practicing child?
Dear Sheikh, as-Salamu `alaykum! If a Muslim mother has a six-month-old baby and is breast-feeding him, can she take precautions against another pregnancy at least for three years, to preserve her health and that of the baby? What are the steps that are allowed in Islam for taking precautions against pregnancy and what are the steps prohibited in Islam? Is Intra-uterine Device (IUD) allowed in Islam? This device, as well as other contraceptives, are reversible and can be left in place for several years (for example, copper devices - left for 2-5 years). What does Islam say about using contraceptive pills? What should be the husband's role in accepting the steps provided by his wife if they are allowed in Islam? Should he encourage her for taking precautions?
