Title: Abortion after 4 months.


Dear Mufti Saab,

I need answer little urgent,

as per your fatwa no.17773 child abortion can be done if the baby is developed with  below problems with in 120 days.

 "Proven abnormalities, e.g. Anencephaly (no brain), Downs Syndrome, Trisomy, HIV positive, congenital rubella health."

Now  becuase of doctor ignorance they find out above problems in 8th month any they want to abort baby immediately .

what we have to do in this case . Please advice us urgently.




In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh. 

It is not permissible to abort a baby after 120 days.[1]

And Allah Taala Knows Best

جب تک روح نہ آوے اسقاط حکم قتل نفس میں نہیں، لیکن بلا ضرورت مکروہ ہے، اور بعذر جائز اور بعد نفخ روح حرام و کبیرہ و قتل نفس-


( فتاوی محمودیہ،   ج۲۷،   ص۳۵۲،   مکتبہ محمودیہ )

جان پڑنے کے بعد  ساقط  نہيں کیا جائیگا-


( رد المحتار، ج ٦، ص ٣٧٤، دار الفكر)

لو أرادت إلقاء الماء بعد وصوله إلى الرحم قالوا إن مضت مدة ينفخ فيه الروح لا يباح لها وقبله اختلف المشايخ فيه


(لنهر الفائق شرح كنز الدقائق، ج ٢، ص ٢٧٦، دار الكتب العلمية)

هل يباح الإسقاط بعد الحمل؟ نعم يباح ما لم يتخلق منه شيء ولم يكن ذلك إلا بعد مائة وعشرين يوماً وهذا يقتضي أنهم أرادوا بالتخليق نفخ الروح وإلا فهو غلط لأن التخليق يتحقق بالمشاهدة قبل هذه المدة كذا في (الفتح)
