00:02:28 --> 00:02:29

Okay, so

00:02:32 --> 00:02:34

this webinar was decided

00:02:35 --> 00:02:38

that we should have this on this topic, which people have talked about before.

00:02:39 --> 00:02:43

But there's always a need to talk about issues relating to

00:02:44 --> 00:02:59

these two topics, birth control and abortion, they're both kind of related topics. awareness needs to be raised. And there there are a lot of issues relating to these two topics, a lot of scenarios, a lot of

00:03:03 --> 00:03:07

issues that we need to discuss inshallah dial up

00:03:13 --> 00:03:14

as the sister also mentioned,

00:03:16 --> 00:03:18

that sorry, one second

00:03:21 --> 00:03:22


00:03:24 --> 00:03:32

I have written a book on this topic, which is why we decided to we should have a seminar on this or a webinar on this.

00:03:34 --> 00:03:38

For more details, you can read the book, I mean, I have it right in front of me, I just picked it up.

00:03:39 --> 00:03:51

This is a book that I wrote many years ago. It's called birth control, and abortion in Islam, birth control, and abortion in Islam.

00:03:52 --> 00:03:54

It's approximately

00:03:58 --> 00:04:08

80 pages per book is about 80 pages, just these two topics, I have three sides, three pages of notes here, which is a summary of these 80 pages.

00:04:09 --> 00:04:14

So therefore, you can imagine all the details on here if somebody has more interest in the subject and

00:04:16 --> 00:04:41

somebody wants to know more about these topics than we shall if they can. I mean this book is available on our motto but our but our data on website, which the sister just introduced right now, dar UL if TWA towards the end up on the show, you can just go into the book section. There's a few books that I have written and people can order those but this one's there as well.

00:04:42 --> 00:04:45

Which is published by white thread press.

00:04:46 --> 00:04:47


00:04:48 --> 00:04:49

this topic is actually

00:04:53 --> 00:04:59

a very, very important topic, birth control and abortion

00:05:01 --> 00:05:03

From an Islamic perspective from Islamic point of view

00:05:07 --> 00:05:14

now, the first issue is birth control. We'll talk about birth control first. And then we'll talk about abortion.

00:05:16 --> 00:05:19

What is birth control, controlling of birth.

00:05:21 --> 00:05:25

Control means controlling of birth.

00:05:27 --> 00:05:29

In Arabic We say love Teulada

00:05:31 --> 00:05:33

love, which means controlling,

00:05:34 --> 00:05:38

controlling, and sort of limiting limiting.

00:05:39 --> 00:05:40

In the controlled,

00:05:42 --> 00:05:43

there is this limitation.

00:05:45 --> 00:05:50

So blocked means to limit Alveda the process of birth.

00:05:51 --> 00:05:53

So, not letting the natural

00:05:54 --> 00:06:02

causes take effect, and just basically leaving it totally to the

00:06:03 --> 00:06:10

power and border of Allah. And just whether you have one child or you have 24

00:06:12 --> 00:06:32

children, two football teams, some people might want 24 One and they've got a nice big garden, they want to play they want, they want to play 11 a side football match. So that's 22 and maybe two more one one extras or maybe two twos substitutes as well. Some people might want a massive

00:06:33 --> 00:06:44

2425 You know, team of children. So basically birth control is controlling this, trying to take things a bit in your own hands.

00:06:45 --> 00:07:36

Even though as we realize later on, that ultimately, it's all in the power of one box all in the power order of Allah subhanaw taala regardless of what human being does, regardless of what means we take we have been told to take means in terms of medication, etc, in the world and just living a life. We take means, but ultimately means that just means and we realize that ultimate power, ultimate Quadra is where Allah subhanho wa Taala regardless what we do, and we will look at, I'll give you some scenarios as well we'll see that look how Allah subhanaw taala tells us directly like gives us clear, you know, examples and you know, things occur and happen where human being is just

00:07:37 --> 00:08:23

weak before the power and order of Allah, despite the human species, developing many new things and progressing and technology progressing and progression and technology and everything, the man has gone to the moon and there are there are new advances in medical science and in medicine and in everything. Yet, we are still powerless before the power of Allah subhanaw taala we are totally powerless and the recent Coronavirus pandemic just basically gave you know put that straight to us that Allah subhanaw taala said regardless of whatever advancement you have made,

00:08:25 --> 00:08:37

I will create a virus which is so insignificant which is so minor which is so small which is semi invisible, which you can't really even see which is

00:08:38 --> 00:08:46

such that it is difficult to even see unless you use a proper microscopic you know, whatever, medium something

00:08:48 --> 00:08:56

that virus will cause the whole world to come to its knees. Financially you will be affected.

00:08:58 --> 00:09:15

Physically you will be affected. Your Travel, your your daily routine, your work, your relationship, the things you do, the whole world came to a standstill, but something was so insignificant. It's a bit similar to like I normally say it's very similar to Allah subhanaw taala destroying

00:09:17 --> 00:09:59

the King who challenged so you don't Abraham peace be upon him American salatu wa salam, peace be upon him. Now marooned where Allah subhanaw taala used a small mosquito to kill him. He thought he was so powerful. He used to think his God, all of these people whom the prophets came to, you know, encountered, and they challenge the prophets. Who are they? They were basically top level atheists. They were basically people who believed in themselves to be God's. Pharaoh was the same. Allah subhanaw taala sent Moses moosari salat wa salam peace be upon him, and then supported him with his brother.

00:10:00 --> 00:10:19

Haroon peace be upon him. And they both went to Pharaoh they spoke to him gently. Allah said to them hula hoop out and let you know go and speak to them gently. But he used to say, hon Kamala, I am your mighty Lord. That's what he was saying. You say? He said, How can I believe in another God?

00:10:20 --> 00:10:57

I am the god, anyone says someone else's God, they just they will, they will just bust in their brain. They were intoxicated. The power made them in toxic, intoxicated. And this happens to some of us in this day and age as well. When we are healthy, wealthy, we've got everything going out away, we've got word job, you know, you see like you're making money, just money after money. And there's nothing wrong with you physically, especially in the middle aged years. I know a recently said that, you know, the first 20 years of our life. Now this is just slightly off topic. But I'm coming back in a minute to the actual topic. Because this shows us the importance of this, you know, the birth

00:10:57 --> 00:10:57


00:10:59 --> 00:11:08

The first 20 years of our life, we just spend growing up and studying and trying to figure out and plan our future life.

00:11:09 --> 00:11:47

The next one is, so first one of yours is just growing up and studying and you know, trying to find a house or whatever, and just basically trying to figure out and plan your life, which you think it's going to be 400 years, the planning process is such that we're going to, we think that we're going to live here for like, good three, 400 years. That's the type of planning we do. And then the next one is we fill in mortar, we think this is it, this is the life this is everything and anything this is it. We kind of feel we're immortal. We look at death, but we don't think us know, like death happens to another species can happen. me like, kill me, I'm so like, I'm walking, I'm running, I'm

00:11:47 --> 00:11:53

fast, I've got power cause and what you know. So we think we are like, immortal.

00:11:55 --> 00:12:11

And then the next one years from 40 onwards, the aches and pains start you know, your the knee starts painting and then you've got this, you can't do the things you used to do before. You can't stay awake all night before like you used to you can't do this, you can't do that you can't, you know, the pain and aches and pains stopped

00:12:12 --> 00:12:26

until you know that that's the next one is and then from the 60 onwards is basically a bonus. What and whatever you live over 60 Some pass away. I mean, this is no people pass away early as well. But a lot of whatever is over 60 is basically just

00:12:28 --> 00:12:49

bonus, and a gradual move to the next life. You just gradually move the more years you get, the more we can disables and the hearing goes and you know the site gets weaker and mobility gets weak, and it's just too and we ended up where we have to go, which is the real eternal life of the hereafter. So

00:12:50 --> 00:13:29

I was saying that this is what all these people felt. People like Pharaoh, people like Nam rude, people who challenge the prophets. They used to think that they are immortal, they are gods, they are the supreme. There's no one else who can be bigger than them better than they they decide what they want to do. And Allah subhanaw taala showed showed them as well Pharaoh law showed him and that's why when he was driving then he said you know now I'm into the rock behind me and Robbie Musa Haroon, I believe in the Lord of the Worlds who is the Lord of Musa Harun yeah now I believe now I believe Colossi sorry

00:13:32 --> 00:13:39

this is not Quran Allah now. Look at that Satan incarnate and all this before this. Now it's too late.

00:13:40 --> 00:13:46

Mr. Farrow, for hours, it's too late now. You have the time now No, anyone would believe. So.

00:13:48 --> 00:13:52

This is how Allah shows his power and Goodra now in that hearing.

00:13:54 --> 00:14:36

So we have to realize that everything ultimately whether you know whether we're talking about birth control when we're talking about abortion, and this only this also applies to abortion as well. We we as human beings have we are so powerless before the power encoder of Allah that's why our iman our European our belief in Allah, our our gratitude to Allah our servitude to Allah Our insignificance before Allah or weakness before Allah we should always keep that in mind. We should think we are nothing we can't we are slaves we are nothing before the power of Buddha and mighty of our Creator. He is the holly he creates, he gets children. So many people along with this birth

00:14:36 --> 00:14:42

control abortion. There's another issue which is IVF there are so many people who you know human beings are such that

00:14:43 --> 00:14:57

you know, there's another topic that we talk in medicine which is IVF treatment, and surrogacy. There the problem is that people are using means to have children. Here people are using means to stop having children.

00:14:58 --> 00:14:59

What kind of insanity?

00:15:00 --> 00:15:39

fora the human being is a very ungrateful species, the Quran says. So, it's like those people that are dying to have children. You know, there's people who can't have children and go through in vitro and then taking the means and it's permissible with certain rules and regulations and subtopic and so on. But they are trying their best they are taking the means even there. The command is to understand and realize we take the means, but it's in the power of Allah. It's an order of Allah. Allah says, In the Quran many places but there's a verse of verses to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the Yahama Yeshua. He creates whatever He wishes, what Allah human customer,

00:15:39 --> 00:16:15

whatever, a lot of local militia, yeah Hubballi my show in artha, he grants female children to whom so ever he wishes were habitually my yesha at the court and He grants male children to Who am whomsoever He wishes. Oh is a widow who Karana we're in Eartha and whoever he wants, sometimes it gives them both male and female children. And then Allah says the fourth scenario, they give some people girls, some people are boys. Some He grants them both were joggle mania show, Arkema and some people He grants them nothing. He keeps them buried.

00:16:16 --> 00:16:22

In who alamin credit, he has power and he knows he knows what's good for you. And He has power.

00:16:24 --> 00:16:26

So it's a squirrel in his control.

00:16:27 --> 00:16:43

You take the means, if it's meant to happen and to happen, Allah tells us to take the means. But ultimately, dua is very important control is in the hands of Allah, we need to bring this back this this relationship with Allah this connection with Allah. So anyway,

00:16:44 --> 00:16:48

here birth control is the controlling of the process of having children.

00:16:49 --> 00:16:51

Again, there are rules and regulations

00:16:53 --> 00:17:15

which we can adopt because Allah has allowed them. But ultimately we realize that it's all in the power of Allah. Likewise, rules and regulations with abortion, we adopt the means which can take certain courses of action, but we realize that it's all ultimately in the power and power of Allah. So the first aspect of this birth control and abortion controlling is contraception.

00:17:19 --> 00:17:25

Contraception basically means that we are

00:17:27 --> 00:17:37

trying to limit limit, having children through the method of contraception. Now, the first point as mentioned here, one of the basic purposes of marriage is procreation.

00:17:38 --> 00:17:53

Therefore, birth control slash contraception in general contradicts the spirit of Sharia. This is what I've written mainly in my book as I've got a whole introduction before we actually talk about the topics I've got about seven, eight pages of introduction. And that

00:17:56 --> 00:17:58

marriage in Islam has many

00:18:00 --> 00:18:40

purposes, okay, many purposes, purpose in Arabic, we say Moxa, mocassin, objectives, goals, aims, intentions purposes. So, with all the different things that we do in our life, we have certain we have been given certain objectives objectives in to keep in mind from a Sharia point of view. So, with marriage, there are certain objectives. There's about six, seven different objectives. One of them, this is not the only one, but it's an important one, but one of them. So, one of the basic objectives of marriage is procreation, which means

00:18:42 --> 00:19:01

having children one of the reasons why we marry that's not the only two to make that as the only objective that's also wrong. Some people if they say if someone says that I'm married, just so that I just want to make, you know, children, but I just want to create children. That's it making I am marrying

00:19:02 --> 00:19:05

to have a factory of kids, nothing else that's rock.

00:19:07 --> 00:19:47

Marriage has many objectives. The Quran tells us other objectives and other places. Amin IoT and hello caller coming infrastructures version later school relay for tranquillity for peace was your elevator come over that you have compassion you you have a companion through whom use with whom you share compassion and friend, friendship and you have a life companion, you gain peace and tranquility and all of that. So that's a very important objective. Another objective is also fulfilling your sexual desire need which is absolutely natural normal for every human being in a halal lawful way. Because Zina is haram so you do it in a halal way. One very, very important

00:19:47 --> 00:19:59

objective of marriage is that it's a sunnah inside Bada and it takes us close to Allah, we marry so that we build our spirituality we increase in our spirituality, we progress in our spirituality, we become close to Allah

00:20:00 --> 00:20:36

Through the union of marriage, both spouses, husband, wife, they help assist one another in getting close to Allah. That's why when we get married, we need to find someone who will help us in that process of reaching Allah, in our journey to Allah in our progress towards Allah subhanaw taala you need to find a wife, who will actually help you and not distract you, and will not, you know, be a barrier between you and Allah and you need a husband who's going to actually take you to Allah, help you get to Allah, and you know, get you close to Allah practice being not someone who's going to be a barrier. So these are some other objectives. But along with those, one of them very important ones

00:20:36 --> 00:20:38

is procreation.

00:20:39 --> 00:20:43

Having children, Allah subhanaw taala used marriage as a means of

00:20:47 --> 00:21:08

lineage being established as a means of this human race continuing, okay, Allah could have used any other method. But Allah chose this method of the race of the human race of future children and the project you keep on continuing. So that's an objective also to keep keep in mind. So therefore, it's one of the objectives.

00:21:09 --> 00:21:10

So to

00:21:13 --> 00:21:15

intend something

00:21:17 --> 00:21:37

which goes against this OpSec objective, to take a course of action which contravenes and totally opposes this objective? In a clear way. That's not right. That's wrong. Islamically it goes against the spirit of Sharia. So birth control in general, I mean, it's permissible, like we will talk about it, but

00:21:43 --> 00:22:29

Islam encourages to have children. Okay, there's lots of Hadith. I mean, even sexual relations, there's a verse in Surah Al Baqarah, verse 187, where Allah said for the anniversary ruhuna obita humatrope Allah Hulagu when you have sexual intercourses have * with your spouses, engage in sexual relations and see that which Allah has prescribed for you. Work double marketable Hola Hola, Ko, see what Allah has ordained for you, has written for you. So when you have sexual relations, one of the objectives is fulfilling your desires and etc, etc. But one of the main objectives with through sexual * and marriage as a whole gender role is to seek pious,

00:22:29 --> 00:22:30

righteous offspring.

00:22:34 --> 00:22:50

The messenger sallallahu alayhi salam said to one companion male companion does overjoyed doodle volute marry women marry a woman who is loving and fertile, find out if she's a fertile woman or not. For for with you, I shall outnumber the nation's

00:22:51 --> 00:22:57

He also advised another companion to marry a woman who is fertile and he gives birth to children.

00:22:59 --> 00:23:01

So there's numerous Hadith on this topic.

00:23:03 --> 00:23:03


00:23:06 --> 00:23:42

procreation is one of the objectives and also the fact that you know, having a family becomes a means of protection becomes a time becomes an asset and a times of need. know, when you have children in your family, you don't want to just be alone, you know, when you're living the life towards the end of your life when you're alone and sing you know, single because your spouse has passed away, you don't have any children and family. So having a large family unit having children, it becomes an asset at the time of need. It teaches wants to be responsible to love and cherish other member members of the family, you you learn to care and share etc, etc. So

00:23:43 --> 00:23:46

this is why intending to have children is one of the objectives.

00:23:47 --> 00:23:50

But not just and children are a source of mercy as well.

00:23:53 --> 00:24:36

Children are a source of mercy as well. There's a hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi salam said when a human being dies, he or the actions come to an end, except three things sadaqa jariya, you have an ongoing charity so you basically say for example, you build a mosque, or you develop for the poor people, so it's a continuous sadhaka Oh, alimony. interfer will be if you leave beneficial knowledge from which people are benefiting. That's also you, you keep on receiving that reward after you die. You wrote a book for example, like today, Imam and Mahalia for example the Allah just imagine he's passed away a long, long, long time ago. But every single day that is not a day that

00:24:36 --> 00:24:44

does not pass a pass by that some Muslims somewhere in some part of the world is not reading or teaching or studying Sahil

00:24:45 --> 00:24:46

just imagine

00:24:47 --> 00:24:59

over 1000s of years, imagine Imam Abu Hanifa look at these people. Imagine the type of you know reward they are receiving on a continuum.

00:25:00 --> 00:25:01

was a daily basis.

00:25:03 --> 00:25:18

You know, I said every day maybe it could be there is no moment in 24 hour duration. There's not a second, there's no instance there's not a moment where somebody is not reading or teaching or studying. Sahil mahari

00:25:19 --> 00:25:58

imagined and he collected the headaches and this is a moment of aha, you're not the Aloha. Just imagine, on going church continues. He's passed away over 1000 years, but there's not a minute after he's passed away that he's not receiving a reward, alimony and gaffer OBE and lastly, the messenger sallallahu alayhi. wasalam said a word solid Hola, you leave leave a pious child who makes the athlete. So all these reasons, because of our there that generally doesn't control contraception, limiting the birth of children. Generally, it goes against the spirit of sharing. Children are a source of mercy as well for the parents,

00:25:59 --> 00:26:08

you know, small children who pass away they will take you know who passed away at a young age they take the parents pull them and take them to Paradise, etc. So therefore,

00:26:10 --> 00:26:23

in general, it contradicts the spirit of Sharia. What does that mean? Is that as a ideology, Islam totally rejects birth control,

00:26:24 --> 00:26:27

as a concept, as a ideology,

00:26:28 --> 00:27:09

as a thought process, as a vision, as a, you know, like, you know, you have this birth control movement, you got a movement for everything nowadays, but you know, you have, I don't know, whatever, but certain countries have like, like China had this 2.5 You know, perfect family is like only two children. And a lot of places they said that he used to have a slogan, only two kids are good. Only two kids are good. Some people used to think that you know, like there was a brother was saying that in the back in the day. He used to keep on hearing the slogan that children are only good to chill only two kids are good. So there were like eight or nine brothers and sisters today's

00:27:09 --> 00:27:33

location that needs to fight legs, only us to a good it's only me and you only those two are good. The rest of you are not good. Which two amongst us are good. But anyway, this was a slogan that only have two kids and that's why they try to put this in our heads. Like the idea of family. You see all these programs on TV, television, soap opera, whatever. The perfect family will only have four father mother

00:27:36 --> 00:27:37

a boy and a girl

00:27:39 --> 00:27:41

and so far it's father mother.

00:27:43 --> 00:27:51

Very soon, if not already started. Most of these programs will show the perfect family father Father,

00:27:52 --> 00:28:12

boy and a girl or a mother mother and a boy Annika but anyway, that's another topic but that's what the show one boy one girl if you've got a boy if you've got to go hulless you have achieved success salvation pinnacle of your life. You hit the jackpot. That's it, you are successful.

00:28:13 --> 00:28:13

End of story.

00:28:17 --> 00:28:49

I'm not saying that is haram because we're going to read about the rules. This is I've not started the rules yet. Okay. So if you have if you're thinking I want you to ask questions, just wait. Because we're not saying It's haram or anything like that. But this is just like an introductory topic like in terms of as a concept. Islam groove rejects a concept that as an ideal family, you should have only two you should only have one or you know, contraception birth control as a concept as as ideology as as a way of living.

00:28:52 --> 00:29:00

As a ism, for example, country birth control Islam. I don't know if that's a term that's wrong in Islam. Islam totally rejects.

00:29:01 --> 00:29:17

There's numerous verses of the Quran Hadith, like I said, because its objective is to have children. The messenger SallAllahu sallam said, marry and have children doesn't what will what do the volute married women who give a lot of birth to a lot of children in the MacArthur and the Kamala millennials.

00:29:21 --> 00:29:33

So therefore, this like if you had a for example, and Islamic government would be wrong for them Islamically to make a law that restricts birth of children

00:29:36 --> 00:29:37

as a concept

00:29:38 --> 00:29:59

if there's an external reason, for example, some temporary reason that's come about then they could do that. Like for example, the old malfunctioning and you know, there's not good water or healthy water, are they dying or they're being then that's another case that's another story. It's just temporary because of external reasons. But as a concept that just the perfect family should be

00:30:00 --> 00:30:04

for one child or two children or three children, then that's wrong Islamic

00:30:07 --> 00:30:20

especially when it's because of fashion and wanting to imitate the mean of the non Muslims, etc And so today Okay, moving on quickly, it's time as well flying by, I always think there's a lot of time and then when I

00:30:21 --> 00:30:29

heard and talking then I realized it's very less time. Now this contraception, you have permanent contraception and temporary contraception

00:30:31 --> 00:30:48

what is permanent irreversible contraception this is what we're looking at right now let's hear permanent irreversible contraception which is by way of sterilizing male sterilization which is called vasectomy or female sterilization which is called to back to me.

00:30:50 --> 00:30:51

So, this is a permanent,

00:30:53 --> 00:30:55

irreversible we say irreversible,

00:30:56 --> 00:31:00

which is more or less like I said, generally this is irreversible,

00:31:01 --> 00:31:27

in normally generally serviceable, but there are cases where, through like proper proper oil recently, some of the medics told me that it can be reversed, but still generally it's called you know, irreversible contraception because in normal cases, this is not reversible, the male has sterilization or the female has this stupid tube ectomy, sterilization, or castration or whatever different forms and ways of doing this.

00:31:28 --> 00:31:33

This is totally clearly forbidden and haram in Islam This is not

00:31:34 --> 00:31:39

allowed at all. You know, there's a hadith where the messenger salAllahu alayhi salam,

00:31:40 --> 00:31:48

one companion came to ask the messenger so well what do you say to them about castration and messages that Allah said no. So he said it's forbidden

00:31:49 --> 00:31:56

he forbade castration the ability you know the the ability to have children forever

00:32:02 --> 00:32:05

so therefore, this is this is totally agreed upon that this is not allowed

00:32:14 --> 00:32:28

which means rendering a person permanently incapable of producing children and whatever the method is used for this irreversible contraception in all its forms is haram and lawful in Islam.

00:32:32 --> 00:32:37

However, in dire situations, like with everything else in Islam, if there's something

00:32:38 --> 00:32:48

there's an excuse genuine excuse, in dire situations, it does become permissible when for example, a woman's life or health is greatly threatened by pregnancy.

00:32:49 --> 00:32:51

You know, if it's medically

00:32:52 --> 00:32:57

concluded that this woman if she was to become pregnant again,

00:32:58 --> 00:33:24

she her life is seriously endanger, seriously endanger. And they should be advised by a qualified Muslim doctor or better team of specialists. Why we say Muslim because Muslim. It's not always necessary, but generally Muslim because not any Muslim as well. a practicing Muslim basically someone who knows who practices practices Islam, and knows the severity of

00:33:27 --> 00:34:03

sterilization and permanent contraception in Islam knows that it's haram knows and realizes and takes it seriously. So they will when they give you that advice, they'll know how serious it is for a Muslim because they themselves are practicing. So they will be able to give you good advice that yes, despite it being so serious in Islam, haram regardless of that, your situation you've already had two pregnancies both were complicated, both worse as Aryans both we have to cut you open. If you were to get pregnant again, your life is severely in danger, you most likely you're going to lose your life.

00:34:05 --> 00:34:06

In that case is permissible.

00:34:07 --> 00:34:14

We won't say in this case, okay, stop having sexual *. Because that's not what Islam says because that's a natural need. So

00:34:16 --> 00:34:20

and you can just say, Okay, let me know, in that way, well, why don't we just do

00:34:21 --> 00:34:28

temporary, reversible contraceptive methods? The reason is because we're going to talk about it because with reversible,

00:34:29 --> 00:34:49

isn't it? It's never guaranteed even wearing a condom is not guaranteed. The only way to be absolutely sure and be perfectly perfectly short is a reversible contraceptive method irreversible contraception, which is sterilization. So in an extreme situation, in a dire situation, life threatening situation.

00:34:50 --> 00:34:51

It becomes permissible.

00:34:53 --> 00:34:57

The to now we come to number two, the temporary reversible contraceptive method

00:35:00 --> 00:35:04

is temporary revert these are reversible methods these are all temporary

00:35:08 --> 00:35:09

there are many methods

00:35:11 --> 00:35:26

like what they work in different ways if you've got a bit of medical background you know they work in different ways. Some create a barrier, some prevent pregnancy by create a barrier between the sperm cells for sperm and the egg.

00:35:27 --> 00:35:37

The sperm sorry, for goes to the fertilizes the egg, so prevents fertilization, or the stop the fertilized egg from developing.

00:35:39 --> 00:35:47

And it gets discarded. It stops it from going into the womb line. And some other ways like as well, which is outside *. It's called

00:35:48 --> 00:36:15

the withdrawal method, the man before reaching sexual climax and sexual * and before releasing sperm, he withdraws from his wife's private pots from the * and injected outside. That's cool acid in Arabic. And that was a method that was used in the time of the messenger, salallahu, Alaihe, salam, and all the Hadith to talk about as because that was the only method and nowadays we have condoms as well.

00:36:16 --> 00:36:28

Now, there's one thing that if you look at all these methods, none of these methods are 100 percent, nothing, none of the methods are 100%.

00:36:29 --> 00:36:42

And this is what I was trying to say. Right? Right in the beginning. Ultimately, the it's in the Quadra and powerful law, there's actually a hadith This is why the ruling is there is a Hadith were recorded in my book.

00:36:44 --> 00:36:47

The messenger SallAllahu Sallam has said this, there's a few hundreds.

00:36:48 --> 00:36:59

One of them in the book is in regards to temporary contraception have gathered all you know, a collection of Hadith on this topic. So there's 123456

00:37:01 --> 00:37:41

I've gathered seven Hadith Arabic snails translation and on the topic, basically, in the time of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they used to only use the azul method, which is the withdrawal method outside *. So the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam gave his ruling which I will mention regarding that. And now, because as the outside * and withdrawal method is a temporary form of contraception, therefore, all other temporary forms of contraception take the same ruling. So a condom will take the same ruling, you know, nowadays we have, what do we have, we have condoms, we have,

00:37:42 --> 00:37:57

we have the rhythm method. We have the intro uterine devices, we have diagrams and caps we have the oral contraceptive the pill, some women go into the pill, we have injections, now we have these birth control patches as well.

00:38:00 --> 00:38:05

Etc, etc. But all of them take the same ruling, one ruling for

00:38:06 --> 00:38:38

one size fits all one ruling for because they're all number one, the old temporary, number two, they are not guaranteed. None of them are guaranteed. Regardless of you know, if you ask the experts, they will tell you, you know, this particular method of contraception is like 89% successful 93% successful 94% Success 99% Success, nothing's 100% Nothing even if something is you know, in the world is mentioned 100% Technically, but nothing is unrepresented

00:38:39 --> 00:38:40


00:38:41 --> 00:38:47

When we say 100% is just according to our dunya we calculation our worldly understanding our

00:38:49 --> 00:38:51

human need understanding.

00:38:52 --> 00:39:00

So, this is the reason so saying there's a hadith where the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he was asked about this,

00:39:01 --> 00:39:05

there was companion abou sorry, the hoodie, he says that

00:39:07 --> 00:39:30

we used to practice the withdrawal method as so we asked the messenger SallAllahu and he was sending a about it like is it allowed? Can we do this? So the messenger Salallahu Alaihe. Salam said, Do you really practice it? Do you really do it? He just question he never said no, don't do it haram. Neither did he give a clear say permission as well. Yeah, no, by all means carrier Universidad as well.

00:39:31 --> 00:39:35

God generally in response to this question, he kept on saying one thing.

00:39:36 --> 00:39:55

Generally, this is the kind of spiritual the general message in all the Hadith. He neither clearly prohibited them that knows haram don't do it. And neither clearly gave his wholehearted permission granted permission. No. The general answer was, do you really do it? Why do you do it?

00:39:56 --> 00:39:59

Do you really want to do it because he said, Ma'am, in NASA, thank you

00:40:00 --> 00:40:02

Unity Illuminati Yama, Illa here.

00:40:03 --> 00:40:23

Do you really do it? And then he said, There is no soul that is destined to exist until the young of judgment except that it will come into existence regardless, all you do you really do it even if you do it. If it's destined, if that child is destined to be born, it will be born no matter what

00:40:28 --> 00:40:40

market of Allahu Allah Smith in here, kinda you will fear may lessen the cool, it does not matter if you practice it or not. For every soul that is to be born up to the day of resurrection will be born.

00:40:43 --> 00:40:54

Now the Hadith, when he was asked, Why does one of you practice it? He never said don't do it. He said, Why do you? Why does one of you practice it because there is no soul created, but Allah is the Creator.

00:40:56 --> 00:41:34

Northern aeration. When he was asked about this withdrawal method, he said, Remember the child is not born from all the liquid, all the * when Allah intends to create something, nothing can prevent, etc. So anyway, the general ruling based on this is that this is a quaint old schools of thought more or less, in general, these are disliked and discouraged. Makuta, no haram, these methods, pill, condom, etc. If practice without any reason. Look, if it's done as a concept, then that's haram. I mentioned that right at the beginning is done as ideology as a concept,

00:41:35 --> 00:41:41

then it's hard. If it's done without any reason, just generally like that's it, just fashion, I just want to,

00:41:42 --> 00:42:02

then it's disliked. And if there's a genuine reason, and most cases people do it because of reason that is permissible. Because the messenger Salallahu Alaihe. Salam didn't forbidden companions didn't do it. And these include physical state weakness and illness, you are the couple on is on a distant journey.

00:42:03 --> 00:42:17

And you don't want to have a child here. The relations between a couple is unstable divorce is possible or likely so you don't really want to have children right now. Spacing our children to give them adequate current tension. Also, opposable legitimate reason,

00:42:18 --> 00:42:34

remember, not financial, I'm talking about that, inshallah it's coming. So this is just space in our children, because you want them to be good Muslims, practicing Muslims, you know, if you start having children being born every year, like, you know, it's difficult.

00:42:36 --> 00:43:07

You've got a two year old and a three year old and a four year old and a five year old and a six year old and a seven year old, like, you know, wake up in the morning, and who do you take to school and who do you take to nursery and who do you attend to you just they're just woken up once upstairs shouting, you know, saying, No, I'm done. I'm finished. Come and watch me in the washroom, you know, and another one now there's done a nappy and trying to this nappy and, and then another one is done. There's just the vomited. And there's like, it's just not possible. So spacing them out. It's actually recommended. Some scholars have said this recommended giving them attention. It's for them,

00:43:07 --> 00:43:24

it's for their health, it's for their well being. It's for their education, it's for their tarbiyah it's for their good upbringing, it's for their Islam for them to be pious, righteous, God fearing practicing good Muslims, then spacing them out. It's fine. It's actually nothing wrong with that.

00:43:25 --> 00:43:33

So it's permissible. However, there are certain reasons because of which It's haram and invalid unlawful reasons. Fear of poverty.

00:43:34 --> 00:43:38

That's wrong Islamically as a notion that I want to

00:43:39 --> 00:43:44

space out children or I don't want to have children because I can't financially capable. That's

00:43:45 --> 00:43:59

financially Allah has said in the Quran for mom and dad but in front of the Illa Allah Allah here as well. You don't worry, you don't worry. Allah has created this child Allah will give it to this you don't worry if you can't do it. Don't worry, Allah was good Allah will nurture it.

00:44:00 --> 00:44:08

No one No contact our Karuna Allah Allah he happen to work with a lava compromisable tail if you were to trust Allah like the birds trust Allah

00:44:09 --> 00:44:29

Allah would give you risk the way he gives the birds risk they go in the morning empty stomach they come back full stop they don't worry animals don't worry oh you know I'm not going to I'm not going to meet with with the mob you know the agenda. Man. I don't want to give any eggs you know who's going to look after all these you know, birds that are coming alive except

00:44:30 --> 00:44:51

they live or live live a life like a bird and you'll feel like a bird you'll feel you just relaxing and chilling as they say in life. We take too much pressure because it's the society brings pressure on us self imposed pressures in many cases. So fear of poverty or not being able to provide financial is a haram objective reason you can't do it for that.

00:44:53 --> 00:44:56

Fashion as well. Like this is a fashion that's no reason.

00:44:57 --> 00:44:59

Small feminists being ashamed of having a go

00:45:00 --> 00:45:07

Oh, that's like a really bad man that I mean, it's how you know that you're going to have a go anyway, so difficult. But

00:45:08 --> 00:45:22

sometimes, you know, some people might just think, Oh, my gotta go, oh, you know, everyone in our family is getting goals. So medical goals, I don't want to have kids. That's wrong, totally wrong. Some people used to do that before. And population control, like I said, as a concept

00:45:24 --> 00:45:26

forms of cancer this is the general ruling,

00:45:29 --> 00:45:36

permissible, with a reason not permissible with certain reasons that I mentioned. And as a concept,

00:45:37 --> 00:45:38

it's not permissible at all.

00:45:42 --> 00:45:55

Finally, there are certain forms of contraception that destroy a fertilized egg. So such as in the case of emergency contraception, and the loop, these are not permitted.

00:45:56 --> 00:45:59

These are not permitted.

00:46:02 --> 00:46:07

Unless there's a genuine, genuine medical reason, there's something I need to explain.

00:46:10 --> 00:46:11


00:46:12 --> 00:46:22

So we talked about all these methods of contraception, but there's certain forms of contraception, which, because you see,

00:46:24 --> 00:46:25

like the condom

00:46:26 --> 00:46:29

or the pin oral pill.

00:46:33 --> 00:46:34

They work

00:46:37 --> 00:46:47

by becoming a barrier between the sperm and the egg, so they start pregnancy, before the sperm even reaches the egg.

00:46:49 --> 00:47:05

So the egg is not fertilized. So that's the route the ruling mentioned before is for all those types of contraceptive temporary contraceptive methods. However, there are certain forms, like emergency contraception pill.

00:47:07 --> 00:47:10

So the husband wife, they've had sexual * in the night,

00:47:11 --> 00:47:29

the next day, the morning after pill, it's also caught, they take an emergency contraceptive morning after pill, and also certain forms of the loop. How they work is that the sperm has already reached even if he reaches the egg and the egg has been fertilized.

00:47:31 --> 00:47:39

After the egg has been fertilized, it prevents that egg from going and planting itself in the womb lining.

00:47:40 --> 00:47:47

Now, this is a matter of debate and discussion. Is this actually allowed? Is this actually called contraception or is it called abortion?

00:47:48 --> 00:48:00

Because the answer to this is based on determining when can you call a person pregnant? When is a woman deemed regarded and considered pregnant?

00:48:03 --> 00:48:21

Even the Christians have had this massive debate because there's there was a massive discussion is a woman considered pregnant? Once the sperm meets the egg and it's fertilized That's it? That's a you're pregnant. Or the other opinion that that's not being pregnant pregnant is after fertilization when it goes into the womb.

00:48:24 --> 00:48:40

Because if it's the first, then now the sperm has made the egg she's already pregnant. Now an emergency contraceptive pill that will stop the pregnancy is like a very early, early abortion very early type of abortion, like right in the first instance.

00:48:41 --> 00:48:53

So there's a discussion even amongst Muslims, there could be a slight difference of opinion but majority have said this and this is what majority scholars are inclined towards and this is what you know, I follow as well is that

00:48:54 --> 00:48:56

these methods are not permitted.

00:48:57 --> 00:49:06

They they are a form of a very early type of abortion, discarding the fertilized egg

00:49:07 --> 00:49:09

destroying the fertilized egg.

00:49:10 --> 00:49:25

It's a very early type of abortion. Now, what is the ruling? Can you take that emergency contraceptive pill or not? That will depend on what the ruling is of abortion which we will talk about right now. What is the ruling of abortion?

00:49:26 --> 00:49:35

We'll get to that. So So I've just said here are not permitted unless there's a genuine medical reason like in abortion, which now we'll expand on the Chava here

00:49:36 --> 00:49:38

in the abortion pot

00:49:41 --> 00:49:44

sorry, I know what I'm doing here. Okay. So now we move on to

00:49:46 --> 00:49:49

abortion and termination of pregnancy to tip

00:49:51 --> 00:49:59

with abortion. The exact answer to that question, I'll leave it to the end or when it comes to it to the ruling but we'll just carry on with abortion.

00:50:00 --> 00:50:00


00:50:01 --> 00:50:13

first thing about abortion is sanctity of life. In Islam life is considered and deemed to be sacred and sanctified. Allah says all of it Khurana, Benny Adam.

00:50:15 --> 00:50:16

We have honored

00:50:17 --> 00:50:21

the Children of Adam Surah 17 verse 70

00:50:23 --> 00:50:27

transgressing in any way against human life is a massive sin.

00:50:29 --> 00:50:32

Taking away human life is considered to be one of the greatest sins

00:50:33 --> 00:50:35

in Islam, the sight of Allah.

00:50:38 --> 00:50:46

So, human life is sacred. Many texts of the Quran and Sunnah illustrate the fact that human life regardless of its location,

00:50:48 --> 00:51:13

that human life, whether it's outside in the world, or it's inside the womb, regardless of the location, it is sacred, a trust given by God. No one has a right to take kids. No one has the right to take their life away. Neither the parents of the person, neither the person himself or herself, suicide is haram. We don't own our lives. We don't own our bodies.

00:51:15 --> 00:51:25

This is again, going back to believing going back to being a real Muslim. What does Muslim mean? What does it mean? Muslim means a slave who submits.

00:51:27 --> 00:52:19

This is what faith is, this is what Islam is submission, Muslim, Muslim. Ah, my lord Craig created me. He controls me, he owns me, he owns my life. It's my life, but it's my creator who's created this life. He owns me, he creates created me, he owns my life. He owns my buddy, he owns me controls me, I do what he wants. I am a submissive slave. This is so important. Many Muslims, sometimes we forget this. This is so important. This European and belief in Allah, this dependency on Allah, this realisation of the Supreme Being. We not just believe in this, but we have to live a life like that. And this is the fundamental difference between a person of faith, a person of Islam and a person of

00:52:19 --> 00:52:20

no faith.

00:52:21 --> 00:52:38

Today in this world, we see the people who have no faith, especially atheism. I've mentioned this before many times, and even in the previous session I mentioned, what is atheism? In atheism, they say that we don't believe in God. Yeah. Reason being is because they think they have Gods themselves.

00:52:40 --> 00:53:02

In atheism, every person isn't God. And the Quran says that, for 8am, Anika Illa, who Hawa? Have you seen the one who thinks that his own desires, wishes and thought process and his own way of doing things? His own Caprice and his own intellect is God, the one who's taken his own way as his God.

00:53:04 --> 00:53:43

That's what atheism is. Every person thinks they are God. It's my opinion, what I think is right. That said, regardless, I'll argue til the cows come home. And I'll still even if you bring 400 evidences, nobody wins an argument, the debates. That's why there's no benefit in debate, because debate, nothing doesn't do anything this, this person will stay on this and this person will stay on it. Because everyone thinks their brain is God. They've got an ego, but the Pharaoh used to think I am right, you can't be right. And the story I am right, you bring anything to me. I'm not going to accept it because I am God. In atheism, every individual is a God. And we live in that time. I

00:53:43 --> 00:53:49

actually tweeted about this once and I wrote that in this is what the liberal society is a liberal society is basically

00:53:51 --> 00:54:10

I am God, it's my life. It's my my way. My life, my body, my thoughts, my brain, my intellect, my philosophy, my understanding, you know, don't judge me. Don't tell me what to do. Nobody controls me. Nobody tells me anything. No one has a right to determine. I don't do anything for anyone. It's just me. It's all ego based.

00:54:12 --> 00:54:15

It's very common nowadays. Go on social media. You'll see most a lot of people saying this.

00:54:16 --> 00:54:38

Don't tell me what to do. No one controls me. I'm not doing anything for anyone. Don't let everyone in my life, my body my way I dress like the way I want to dress. I do what I want. I sleep with whoever I want. I can be a male if I want to. I can be a female if I want to. I choose my agenda. I choose my brain. I choose my way of living. I choose what I eat. I choose if I sleep when I sleep, none of your business.

00:54:40 --> 00:54:43

Islam says no. It's not my life.

00:54:44 --> 00:54:49

It's not my body. It's not my brain. It's not mine. It's not. It's

00:54:50 --> 00:54:59

my Lord, my God. microheater His body, His life, his soul. He created it. He decides what I do. He's in control. He's in charge.

00:55:00 --> 00:55:00

He has a right to judge me.

00:55:02 --> 00:55:07

This is a difference between a person of faith and a person of no faith.

00:55:08 --> 00:55:09


00:55:11 --> 00:55:31

no one. So this is why I sit here, no one has a right to take life. Because we don't control we don't own our own lives. That's why suicide is haram. Parents don't have a right to take the life of children. A person cannot take his own life, I don't have a right to do with my body. What I want,

00:55:33 --> 00:55:46

if Allah allows it, that I will do that with my body, if Allah does not allow it, then I can't do that with my body. I can't cause harm to my body because Allah doesn't allow it certain things. Allah doesn't allow mutilation of the body.

00:55:47 --> 00:56:03

cosmetic surgical methods of cosmetic surgery, cosmetic surgery and surgical methods of beautification. Not alone, even though I'm not harming anyone else. I'm doing it from only on me, but I can't be alone is my body.

00:56:04 --> 00:56:10

It's his body, this is a trust, human life is a trust. The body is a trust granted by Allah

00:56:12 --> 00:56:17

given to us, and we just have to say, okay, Allah, um, you know, like, if someone gives you their phone, for example,

00:56:19 --> 00:56:28

or gives you the car, like, can you just keep this phone or can you keep looking after my car for like a week, basically, this is what this is, Allah has given us a body look after it for a few years, before you come back to me.

00:56:30 --> 00:56:47

Don't don't violate it, don't do things don't do things I wouldn't do. Don't do things that you're not allowed to do. Don't go as driving, like, you know, like a crazy person and, you know, smashing the window of the car and damaging the tires, etc. Make sure you look after it. So we have to look after our bodies. So anyway,

00:56:48 --> 00:57:33

life is sacred, which is, regardless of its location, with its external or internal, and then not just life, but even the life which has in the beginning stages that are fully. This includes one's own life, the lives of one children and the life of one another. And this sanctity applies to the human body as well, and yet to be born fetus, because it's going going to progress into being alive, the body is also sick, the fetus is also sick. So this is like, we need to think about this. Now here, the ruling is very clear on abortions, very simple. There's two stages of abortion, you have the stage before 120 days and the stage after 130 days. But there's just one thing I'll say here,

00:57:33 --> 00:57:38

the basically this summary of the Islamic ruling on abortion is that

00:57:39 --> 00:57:45

this is like a good way of understanding is that the later the abortion takes place,

00:57:46 --> 00:57:50

the grave it becomes and the greater you need the excuse.

00:57:51 --> 00:58:23

So for example, if it's like on the first first day, like you know, we talked about the emergency contraception, so very initial stages right at the beginning, it is right at the beginning. Remember, abortion is always harder. It's without an excuse. It's always impermissible. If there's no excuse, medical, I'm going to talk about excuses. We'll give you some examples. It's never allowed without an excuse. Abortion in Islam, termination of pregnancy is unlawful sinful haram, full stop, and a story.

00:58:26 --> 00:58:27


00:58:32 --> 00:58:44

if there are genuine valid excuses, mainly mainly to do with medic medical excuses. These relates these medical excuses, genuine

00:58:45 --> 00:59:07

excuses, they relate to both the mother as well as the unborn, the child, the fetus, sometimes they are to do with the mother, the mother's life is endangered health is in dangers, etc, etc. Or sometimes it's to do with the chart. So if there are genuine excuses, it becomes permissible. That's what I was saying the summary is that earlier it is.

00:59:10 --> 00:59:14

The earlier it is the lesser type of excuses required.

00:59:16 --> 00:59:19

So if a motion is taking place on the first day,

00:59:20 --> 01:00:00

it's not as grave as it is it will be on the second day. It's not as massive listen for a number two, the excuse can be slightly lighter. If he moves on to after five days, then the excuse has to be a bit more like strong. If it's after 10 days to 30 days, 40 days, the more the pregnancy is furthering and progressing. The greater the excuse has to be for you to terminate to the point that if he gets 220 days now there's a difference of opinion here. This was the classical opinion and you know many opinions are that the soul is blown into the fetus after 120 days. This is what my book is based on.

01:00:00 --> 01:00:31

But there's another research that's been done recently, that actually the soul is not blown after it's blown after 40 days. But anyway, both opinions coming forward. But this one is saying that the route, it's after 120 days, if it's after 120 days, the soul is blown into the fetus, then it becomes really great. Now the excuses has to be super, super, super, super, super extreme, to the point that most scholars are saying that there's no excuse after 120 days, even if the mother's life is in danger, you can't terminate the pregnancy after 120.

01:00:32 --> 01:00:37

And some have allowed this and only if it's definitely medically,

01:00:38 --> 01:01:14

you know, decided that either the mother lives or the child lives, then you go for the primate, you kill the child, which is not yet born in the world and established with responsibilities and you save the life mother. But many other scholars have said that even in that case, you just go ahead if Allah wants to take away the life of the mother, or we take away sometimes I love him not because he can't be guaranteed, you can have the birth and the mother still survive. So that's what the majority opinion is that so after 120 days, no excuse. But before that, the more closer you are getting to 120 the more progress Sion is made in the pregnancy, the

01:01:15 --> 01:01:38

greater the excuse has to be, the more genuine the excuse has to be. That's the summary kind of the ruling. So that's why you know, the issue of morning after pill and emergency contraception because it's just the next morning and egg has just been fertilized. You have to have a medical reason, but small one minor reason would justify taking the emergency contraception

01:01:39 --> 01:02:05

small minor now, like I said, you know with abortion is very difficult to get clear ruling for every scenario. This is why will abortion specifically every scenario should be presented before a doctor before an expert Muslim scholar, a chef removed and getting a we need to get a ruling advice based on our scenario based on our situation because each individual scenario is different.

01:02:06 --> 01:02:22

So this is the ruling basically entry of the soul into the fetus. This is just saying that it's you know, because of the Quranic verse and there's a hadith based on that, scholars have said that the soul row enters into the fetus after 120 days. There's a verse of the Quran

01:02:23 --> 01:03:11

in surah, noon, 12 1314 where Allah mentions that you know, we created a human from, you know, a play and then placed him as a drop, drop of sperm etc, etc, at different stages of birth. And then the Hadith says 40 days, 40 days 40 days each stage sought 40 at 120. But others have read that hadith separately 40 4040 is not 40 at 120. What is the 40 4040 meaning all the stages go within the first 40 Because the wording of the Hadith so they say the soul is blonde, because after 40 days, then the ruling becomes even more strict. That after one after 40 days, it becomes like murder because now it's a living breathing human being after 120 days or the other opinion 40 days, there

01:03:11 --> 01:03:33

is consensus of Muslim scholars that it is completely forbidden and murder. When only as for when the mother's life is medically and reliably in absolute danger. There are two opinions. I mentioned two opinions. One is that even in this case, not allowed some said may be allowed in this case, abortion before 120 days, it's still haram but if you have genuine excuses.

01:03:35 --> 01:04:06

It's permissible. And these excuses are of two types that those that affect the mother like mother's physical health is in danger. It constitutes a danger to mother's mental health. Adoption should be considered here. Pregnancy caused due to * as if it's due to * and it's affecting this has to do with mentors was it's permissible, not Xena. Xena will never allow that's haram there's Hadith on that. And those that affect the unborn child Down syndrome, etc, etc.

01:04:08 --> 01:04:24

If it's determined that the child was born with severe disabilities with genetic diseases that will cause the child relentless pains will be an undue burden for the parents then it's permissible to abort the fetus again provided is those what we're talking about before the 120 days

01:04:26 --> 01:04:38

that there should be a certain danger and risk not just steps. You should be advised by a qualified God fearing Muslim doctor said why Muslim and a decided by a specialist team of medical specialists rather than just one person.

01:04:40 --> 01:04:41

Each case you should take

01:04:42 --> 01:04:45

and presented to doctors and scholars and

01:04:47 --> 01:04:49

you should have caution in all matters related to the

01:04:50 --> 01:05:00

invalid reasons are things like fear of shame and dishonor. Fear of not being able to provide adultery, adultery or fornication abortion at any stage is not allowed because of adultery and fornication.

01:05:00 --> 01:05:00


01:05:02 --> 01:05:05

the unborn should not suffer because of

01:05:07 --> 01:05:10

two people that because of the wrongdoing of two adults.

01:05:11 --> 01:05:35

And finally, the responsibility of Muslim physicians, people in the medical field, they ask, can we carry out abortion. So basically the ruling is when Islamically abortion is justified, then it's permitted to carry out that abortion, when it is not justified, it is sinful and most cases is not justified. So if the if it's justified, like reason that your your

01:05:38 --> 01:06:14

you have a patient that comes to you, and it's because of complications, etc. And you know, the fifth and you realize that in this case, it's permissible for them to go ahead, the mother's life is in danger or physical health and it's early stage, then yes, it will be permissible. But if it's not permissible Islamically for that patient to go ahead with abortion, then for a physician as well, it will not be permissible to facilitate that abortion, they can just refer the patient to someone else, that's fine. Say, look, you know what, I can't carry out this abortion. I don't do this abortion, you know, you may just go to someone else and legally as well, you can just refer them and

01:06:14 --> 01:06:15

I think that's fine. Shall.

01:06:16 --> 01:06:20

So we'll leave it at that inshallah. And if you have any questions, we can take questions.

01:06:22 --> 01:06:25

Okay, so we have questions. I think

01:06:26 --> 01:06:30

it will be in the chat, I think or q&a, or it's here in the q&a, because the webinar.

01:06:31 --> 01:06:44

First question here. Usually after three Syrians, a woman is advised to sterilize due to potential risk of complications and she was pregnant again. Yeah, that's right. Yeah. However, there are many women who have additional Sagittarians.

01:06:50 --> 01:07:04

Okay, I'm going out to the top of the front, okay. Because I think I told there's not too many questions about Panama. Okay, I'll go to the first one. This was asked at 549 I think. First one is gone. I think. I don't know.

01:07:07 --> 01:07:09

I hope we have the moderator here. Right.

01:07:12 --> 01:07:20

Okay, shall I start from this one is the Haram bein tuna from that question? Is there anything about yesterday? From there? Yeah. Okay.

01:07:21 --> 01:07:45

A woman has unknowingly married or Qadiani she is now pregnant with his second child. She gave birth to another formerly. Now she learned that her marriage is invalid. She wants to leave the man and abort that fetus, which is less than 120 years old. But could be normal cases, this wouldn't be allowed. After 120 days, it wouldn't be allowed. Okay.

01:07:47 --> 01:08:17

But even it's a difficult one. I mean, I think we should take a second opinion on this. But even before 120 days, this is not allowed because this is not it's like you know, marrying a non Muslim marrying, you know, it's like Xena as well, it was is basically I mean, and it was done out of you. She didn't know unknowingly so it's not you won't be sinful for it. But we leave the child to Allah subhanaw taala No, it's not you know, we kind of bought the fetus, leave it to Allah, Allah will look after the child and you shall the Lord make it a Muslim child.

01:08:18 --> 01:08:41

You've already given birth, that woman has already given birth to another the way that you're not going to go and kill that child that you're already two years old. But that's a you're born out of haram wedlock, so you should die and kill. So just like you can't kill this one. You can't kill this one as well. It's up to us parent. And so I wouldn't think it's permissible. I mean, take a second opinion. But I personally don't think it's possible. It's not a justified reason.

01:08:43 --> 01:08:58

Um, there's a sister here, I think show me asking what if a Muslim woman does not yet feel ready to have children and raise them, but does feel ready to marry for other objectives? Is birth control accepting? Yeah, it's okay. Yeah, like I said, it's, it's okay.

01:09:02 --> 01:09:03

It's, it's okay.

01:09:04 --> 01:09:19

So you can have children, you can get married. And if you still not ready, like you just want to then for temporary reason, for a temporary for short term, right in the beginning of your marriage. Temporary method of contraception is permissible.

01:09:21 --> 01:09:27

It's like you can see why it's one of the reasons is we just want to make our marriage a bit stable. So that's a valid reason.

01:09:29 --> 01:09:32

Either you be saying in the case of a young married

01:09:33 --> 01:09:34


01:09:35 --> 01:09:39

who still see the same kind of question is permissible

01:09:41 --> 01:09:54

steps question from Rocio is is the the intuition committed already? It was discrepancy of opinions about I don't know I mean,

01:09:56 --> 01:09:59

as long as it's temporary and as long as it's because they

01:10:00 --> 01:10:02

some discussion maybe you will have to look on this that

01:10:03 --> 01:10:21

if if it's to do with if it's stopping the pregnancy after the egg is fertilized then it won't be allowed. So just find out from the experts the ruling on this will be based on what the expert opinion is and that also changes expert opinions sometimes it will think something else and sometimes you know, so based on that as well

01:10:24 --> 01:10:28

Hello Beloved communications would like to answer this question live. I will say something

01:10:31 --> 01:10:33

someone's raised their hand or whatever I don't

01:10:35 --> 01:10:37

carry on looking at these questions here

01:10:46 --> 01:10:46


01:10:49 --> 01:10:49

not good.

01:10:51 --> 01:10:53

Okay. Halima Mirza

01:10:55 --> 01:11:02

23 year old woman from Pakistan got married six months ago and five minutes ago into the marriage you found out you were pregnant.

01:11:04 --> 01:11:09

Shortly after the news, my husband and mother in law came to my house and based on a very minor issue they were divorced

01:11:15 --> 01:11:52

abortion wasn't permissible in that case. No, it wasn't allowed. You see like I said a divorce happened things like that. You can't do abortion. Zina, you can't have abortion marriages ending none of this would allow it now make dua to Allah subhanaw taala it's done it's done you know don't don't You don't need to dwell on it you know, we made Miss we all make mistakes you know, this is not something you should have anxiety stress and keep on thinking it was haram for the future we know it's haram just make Toba sincere repentance and of course you probably will make already have done that. And that's it you know, in sha Allah Anka Farah just give some some money in charity as a

01:11:52 --> 01:11:56

way of explanation. There's nothing specific. Just give us something small.

01:11:57 --> 01:12:00

Whatever you can give in, in charity Shala.

01:12:02 --> 01:12:07

How much gap should there be there's no nothing mentioned how much cap should be it's just depends on each person.

01:12:09 --> 01:12:12

Where you are living where you are your family life depends on

01:12:16 --> 01:12:23

what other reason for temporary birth control because you want to spend the first year of marriage to get I said that's allowed permissible.

01:12:24 --> 01:12:35

Next kind of woman who is going to get married to in immediate here, people are all asking about this immediately. I know a lot of people, okay, relax, not too long, but in the beginning is permissible.

01:12:42 --> 01:12:45

Finally, becoming financially independent that, you know,

01:12:46 --> 01:12:49

that's a bit tricky. Because you see,

01:12:52 --> 01:13:26

this is going to that reason of financially caring. That's not really that's a tricky kind of getting to know one another being stable in the marriage. That's also in the beginning, but becoming financially independent. You see, another thing is that we have our own set of ways of thinking was financial independence, in early times, and even to today, some people they just they live Pay As You Go life. They have a stress free life Pay As You Go life seriously. They say we earn every day, whatever we live today, we don't know if we're gonna be live tomorrow. Who knows? If normal is to say when in the morning, don't worry, don't wait for the evening. If you're in the evening, don't

01:13:27 --> 01:14:01

wait that into the server. Seriously, I try to spend live a life like that as well. Honestly, there's no tension, there's no pressure, I'm not worrying about where I'm at, for what, how my pension will come and this wouldn't come in which house I'll be living in and who knows if I'm going to live tomorrow, next week, or who knows to live as your life you got money to spend and enjoy life and just spend each day as it comes. And also this whole financial thing especially in this day, and age is very problematic. People think they need this then it doesn't. We've made too much conditions restrictions, to meet expectations from family people around us and we make ourselves then we get

01:14:01 --> 01:14:29

anxiety, depression, mental health and all of this and that's another topic and so half the time all these depression and stress and anxiety comes about marriage and divorce and finance, finance and money and it's just because of the life we're living because we've been drilled in our head that this is the way your life you should live. So I'm not saying this the you know, you're like that whoever is asking the question, I'm just saying generally this happens a lot but financial reasons shouldn't be the reason for birth control.

01:14:31 --> 01:14:43

We all tell them to send these notes. Inshallah, if you can buy my book as well. From online, you'll find it probably Amazon has it as well. Our director website answer as well. Different places will have it.

01:14:45 --> 01:14:51

Okay, this three Severian that was a question before it keeps on moving with. Yeah.

01:14:53 --> 01:14:57

Please don't Don't take too many questions now because I think we've only got about five, seven minutes or we need to

01:14:59 --> 01:14:59

wrap up

01:15:00 --> 01:15:00

soon. So

01:15:03 --> 01:15:07

there is no medical consensus on a maximum number a number of Syrians.

01:15:08 --> 01:15:10

True. I know that as well, I've heard

01:15:16 --> 01:15:19

this is a difficult one should she try her fourth Pregnancy

01:15:20 --> 01:15:45

is a difficult one. I think. In that case, each individual woman just take advice from those doctors who she trusts and the family trust, just go with that. Because there's the love within the medics as well on this. So whoever you trust in whichever opinion they give you, then if they say they look three times, fourth time, it could be dangerous, and you trust those doctors go ahead with that initial problem. Michelle?

01:15:48 --> 01:16:02

Mohamed Macky Khan would like to know the view for abortion has changed from four months based on two six weeks. Yeah, I mean, I did mention that I said that I talked about it. I don't know. Maybe you asked this question later, that this whole

01:16:04 --> 01:16:15

new sort of view, which I am open to it, I'm not 100% on it. Either way. So I'm open to it. I can see where this is coming from. This is another interpretation.

01:16:17 --> 01:16:44

And the fatwa, I think, both options 120 days and you know, this 40 days, both are valid. And I'm not saying that one is definitely I mean this I wrote this book about 10 years ago or something like that. But this new opinion based on the different reading of the Hadith, it's a valid opinion. So I am getting more inclined towards this but still I'm not fully convinced on that. So both someone's to follow that opinion and that's fine as well.

01:16:48 --> 01:16:53

Is it permissible abortion, if the child is going to be mentally disabled? No, abortion is not allowed.

01:16:55 --> 01:17:08

Sorry. Yeah, we did say before 120 days in the early stages, early stages, if it's medically determined that will the child will be disabled.

01:17:09 --> 01:17:35

Then it's permitted but it's best to avoid especially if it's gone like after 40 days or you know, after two months, three months I remember a case there was a friend of mine who was whose was advised by the doctors to go for an abortion because they said the child will come with severe disabilities of all sorts. child came out small minor things and then 100 Lighter living child maybe eight nine years old now and living a normal healthy lifestyle so

01:17:37 --> 01:17:38

the medics can get things wrong.

01:17:42 --> 01:17:57

Zina because of Xena There's reason this hadith, okay, clearly the mentioned the messenger sallallahu alayhi. Salam didn't allow it. But the main reason is Walters era was a lot of Western okra. I mean, well, number one is that they they shouldn't do Zina, you know that that's

01:17:59 --> 01:18:04

Islam condensed can you know later legal punishment for them to be honest and

01:18:09 --> 01:18:19

the solution is to eradicate fornication I'm not because you know, if one of the reasons is that if we leave the door and say look, it's fine to do something a lot of people because sometimes a lot of times pupil

01:18:21 --> 01:18:23

the chances of getting pregnant

01:18:24 --> 01:18:37

that stop some people committing Zina. And then there's also this incident from the hadith of Sahih Muslim where the time of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said give birth to the child first he didn't say to abort it, and

01:18:42 --> 01:18:50

I've got about two three pages on this. And the Quran also says no bear of burdens can bear the burden of another one that Israel was able to withdraw.

01:18:58 --> 01:19:16

It is inhumane and unjust and the unborn unborn child has to pay the price for a sin committed by two people out of wedlock. A sin they desire to conceal from others. One individual cannot bear the burden of another, etc, etc. Anyway, you can read about it more in detail.

01:19:17 --> 01:19:30

Kind of pregnant woman get married to a man who is not the father of a child. This is I've got an answer on this. Yes, but she can't have sexual relations marriage is permissible but you can't have sexual relations until you don't leave

01:19:31 --> 01:19:34

until the birth takes place then you can have sexual relations

01:19:39 --> 01:19:43

okay, I'm just too many questions. I'm going to just pick and choose now.

01:19:52 --> 01:19:58

*, Zina will juggle Yes, in that it's allowed. I've got a section on this that *

01:19:59 --> 01:20:00

is permitted.

01:20:00 --> 01:20:02

So both in the case in the case of right

01:20:04 --> 01:20:06

now what is this others asking?

01:20:12 --> 01:20:22

If it's permissible then for the Muslim doctor will be permissible as well. Whenever it's permissible for the patient is from the symbol for the Muslim doctor to facilitate

01:20:24 --> 01:20:34

will permanent contraception be allowed when Mother life is not at risk? No it's not mentioned permanent contraception is not allowed except in absolute dire situations

01:20:41 --> 01:20:44

* is permissible in * in *.

01:20:48 --> 01:20:51

Okay, I think there's quite a few questions I think most of these are.

01:21:02 --> 01:21:06

The mcru tansy, Cara for reversible is because the Hadith are not clear.

01:21:07 --> 01:21:19

In other words, the someone's asked about poetry, you're gonna need the meaning is dandy is in the criterion is to do with establishment as well as the interpretation in because of the interpretation being one.

01:21:24 --> 01:21:27

Okay, we'll just leave it at that and Shama because we really need to go as well. And

01:21:29 --> 01:21:46

so summary is basically that, you know, these are all specific scenarios, but I've mentioned that looks, if it's at a later stage, then if it's after 120 days, gonna never be adult. Regardless, even if the mother's life is in danger, if it's under 120, then if it's like, you know,

01:21:47 --> 01:22:13

a very advanced age, take the case to a doctor to a chef term of the ask and see, if it's a very extreme medical condition for the mother or for the unborn child, whether it's Down syndrome, whether it's disability, whether it's mental health issues, whether you know, brain issues, whatever issues, then there may be flexibility of going for termination of pregnancy, provided it's you know,

01:22:15 --> 01:23:00

you know, under that 120 days, or 27 to 40 days, but if it's, if it's false 120 Then be very careful. It has to be super, super, super, kind of extreme kind of situation. And if it's a bit earlier, like if it's after two months or something like that three months, then if it's a lesser kind of excuse, then that would allow abortion. If there's no excuse, then abortion is never allowed. Things like finance, divorce issues, marriage problems, Zina like things relating to you know, the parents that don't that you know, other than health issues, they do not allow or justify abortion. So that's kind of summary of that control and abortion in Islam.

01:23:01 --> 01:23:10
