Asalaamu Alaikum everyone! How’s everyone doing?
Ok…This is what I know and heard/learned…So plz don’t take this for an attack of any sort.
This is only permissible if you have a valid reason for it. For example- if the pregnancy affects the mother’s health in anyway. But to refuse to have children with the excuse that you can not afford to provide for them, that I heard was haraam. You never know how much blessing that child can bring you.
There is also a certain time in which you can abort a child and I heard that is during the first 4 months as that is when the soul will be blown into the foetus.
Children & contraception-
Pretty much the same thing…you don’t have the right to say, I’m going to have 2 kids and that’s it or I’m not going to have any children’ without a legitimate reason. You are, however, allowed to say that you’re going to take a break before having another child, or finish your studies before having children.
All I know is that you cannot give the adopted child your name (the father’s) nor is he/she subjected to the same rules and regulations of that of your ‘real’ children. By that I mean, that for example, your son’s wife (daughter in law) is Islamically your mahram. However, if it were your adoptive son’s wife than she isn’t and she would have to cover up in your presence. (assuming you’re the boy’s adoptive father). I think…
Furthermore, there is the issue of mahram. I’m not sure but any child you may adopt may not be your or your husband’s mahram…unless you breast-feed the child of course.
And Allah knows best.
I’ll try to find some link on this issue.
Wa Alaikum as Salaam Rashid!
ill be back later on
need to go and pray maghrib
So is there any topic of discussion up for tonight besides abortion and adoption? Wat do you think of Michael Jackson becoming muslim? Is it true? Wat about Will Smith?
Thank you soo much for the link habibti
I wasnt asking about abortion, i dont agree with it and i feel it is wrong
But take me for example, i dont want kids, i may wish to get married, but i dont want to marry a guy who only marries me for kids. If i do get married, i am thinking of possibly adopting later, is that okay, or do i need to have kids?
And about micheal Jackson, if he converts he will be joining the cult of NofI which i feel strongly about, all i can say is inshallah he converts to main streem islam and no clan or cult.
Secondly Will smith isnt a muslim, of yet, i personally htink he wont convert, but insahlalh i am wrong
