Question : #926 Category: Family Issues
Subject: Abortion
Question: I have a question on abortion and birth control. I have seen many says birth control is not desirable or not allowed in Islam, but some support it, while abortion is not desirable, but why not birth control, Allah(swt) has said in the Quran that wife and husband are allowed to enjoy, but without any measures there is a good chance of pregnancy, so any who wish to enjoy but not have much children has either to stop having sex with wife, I am newly married I was not planning to have children but suddenly she is pregnant(I don’t know how I always performed Inzal ), now next time I decided not to slept with her, I have no home and a very less salary in private companies even I am unable to afford a dress of myself. It is very practical that we can't afford to give good education etc to children. Since the news I am mentally suffering, on how to arrange the money, etc will come and at the same time private BPO job is never guaranteed, so is it desirable not to give proper care to children who was born out of pleasure means the intention was not to have child.

As per search it shows Abortion is permitted before 120 days. My wife pregnancy may be maximum 20 days. I also found out on net that even Muhammad (PBUH) wife practiced birth control; some say Condom is allowed some says not. But i cannot figured out if there is no birth control like Condom or Coitus (Inzal ) interruptus then a pair will not be available to enjoy sex as ALLAH has given to men, because every time we have sex there will be child and it sure that he will be giving child almost every year and it will be burden to anyone except a king who can afford it. Or the next solution is to stop having sex completely and I think it is not possible. And also Allah has mention that Allah(swt) do not want religion to be burden on us. So why not birth control some argue that abortion is not allowed even in just before 40 days they argue that since the sperm is going to developed to a human being it is not allowed, however then using birth control also is not be followed because it is going to fertilized the egg and going to developed so all these confusion.
“O mankind! If you are in doubt about the Resurrection, then verily, We have created you (i.e. Adam) from dust, then from a Nutfah (mixed drops of male and female sexual discharge, i.e. the offspring of Adam), then from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood) then from a little lump of flesh — some formed and some unformed (as in the case of miscarriage) — that We may make (it) clear to you (i.e. to show you Our Power and Ability to do what We will)”
