Ruling on aborting a pregnancy in the early stages


What is the ruling on aborting a pregnancy in the early months (1-3) before the soul is breathed into the foetus?.

Praise be to Allaah.


The Council of Senior Scholars issued the following statement: 

1 – It is not permissible to abort a pregnancy at any stage unless there
is a legitimate reason, and within very precise limits.  

2 – If the pregnancy is in the first stage, which is a period of forty
days, and aborting it serves a legitimate purpose or will ward off harm, then it is permissible to abort it. But aborting it at this stage for
fear of the difficulty of raising children or of being unable to bear the costs of maintaining and educating them, or for fear for their future or
because the couple feel that they have enough children – this is not permissible. 

3 – It is not permissible to abort a pregnancy when it is an ‘alaqah
(clot) or mudghah (chewed lump of flesh) (which are the second and third periods of forty days each) until a trustworthy medical committee has
decided that continuing the pregnancy poses a threat to the mother’s wellbeing, in that there is the fear that she will die if the pregnancy
continues. It is permissible to abort it once all means of warding off that danger have been exhausted. 

4 – After the third stage, and after four months have passed, it is not
permissible to abort the pregnancy unless a group of trustworthy medical specialists decide that keeping the foetus in his mother’s womb will
cause her death, and that should only be done after all means of keeping the foetus alive have been exhausted. A concession is made allowing
abortion in this case so as to ward off the greater of two evils and to serve the greater of two interests. 

Following note from Muslim Quran online Blog 

The first lesson to be learned by all Muslims is the importance of the Reading Quran Online. All Muslim should learn holy Quran online  is the Book of Allah All mighty. Every word which the quran reciter recites or he read quran is the word of Allah it is mentioned in Quran in Arabic that it is the guidance which has come from Allah. That is why we as Muslim say it is the Holy Book. We should  learn quran and focus on quran teaching thought by the quran tutor to the students and the tutor should arrange the kids quran lessons in such an easy manner so they can understand it easily and make there quran recitation online as beautiful as he could and teach them that the words of Koran were sent by Allah to our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAWW) through the angel Jibraeel. And further more elaborate wile reading quran with teaching them the quran tafseer and the tajweed quran with its rules let then do quran memorization in the proper manner We as Muslim should respect the teachings of Quran and in every other manner when we are reading it or when we listen to Quran  wake up Muslims and spread the word of Islam to
