Subject : Abortion is Permissible If there was a Risk on Mother's Life

Fatwa Number : 402

Date : 13-12-2009

Classified : Medicine & seeking treatment

Fatwa Type : Summarized Fatawaa

Question :

My wife afflicted with Lupus erythematosus which is a very rare disease; yet, at the time being she is pregnant and doctors are of the view that pregnancy forms high risk over her life and might cause death. As we are Muslims thanks to God, we won't make abortion save after having Fatwa from you. Kindly help us.

The Answer :


All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of The Worlds, and may His peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all of his family and companions.

Abortion is permissible if it was confirmed that the existence of the fetus within his mother's Belly might cause her certain death. 

Therefore, abortion is permissible if the above conditions were met. And Allah knows best.
