Is Abortion Like Burying Your Child Alive?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

No!!! Abortion is allowed in extreme situations but burying children alive is not allowed in Any situation whatsoever!

Exactly. Which is why it annoyed me to no end when Ammar Nakshwani compared abortion to the burying of babies, a sort of modern "period of ignorance," in a lecture he did last year, a terrible one about the Mehdi. It's really offensive. I'd expect a scholar to have more sense.

I don't understand how the sin can be different based solely on means of death as the end result is the same.. They are both intentionally dead. They more than likely were both killed for their gender - both in the past (burying) and in today (abortion). The only difference may be in how much they suffered.

I find it interesting that Allah Jalla Jalaalahu mentions how it is a great crime to kill children in the Pure Quran in no less than six different verses. Traditionally this is interpreted as the ancient pagan Arab practice of burying daughters as having daughters was seen as a disgrace to Arab honor.

 

However, if you study carefully, you realize that

1. the verses talk about children in general - no distinction between boys or girls

 

2. the verses mention that the crime of killing children is from fear of poverty - not related to the issue of Arab honor for having boys and not girls

 

Now as Muslims we believe that the Pure Quran is a book of guidance from Allah, and its content is relevant for all generations. Why would Allah repeatedly warn against killing children if this was an isolated practice of one culture (the Arabs) which died out centuries ago? It makes more sense that here Allah knows that in future abortion will become something very common and taken for granted, even justified (however sick it is to justify killing of unborn children). Therefore, I really would like Muslims to know that abortion is a very, very evil thing, and please don't ever justify it, much less ever perform an abortion.

 

According to a Hadith, Hazrat Mehboub-i-Kibriya (Sallallaahu alaihi wa aalihe wasallam) said the greatest sin after committing shirk is

أَنْ تَقْتُلَ وَلَدَكَ خَشْيَةَ أَنْ يَطْعَمَ مَعَك

To kill your son for fear that he will eat with you

 

And is this not the major reason why women commit abortion? They say "we are too young to have kids" or "we can't afford any more kids"...so they end up having an abortion, killing the helpless, unborn, innocent child in the womb.

 

A verse in the Pure Quran which talks about the sin of killing children goes on to say:

 

"Kill not your children on a plea of want;- We provide sustenance for you and for them;- come not nigh to shameful deeds. Whether open or secret; take not life, which Allah hath made sacred, except by way of justice and law." (Surah 6:151)

 

If you look at abortion, you see that many people who commit abortions keep it secret and "hush hush", which is why Allah says "Whether open or secret; take not life"

I'm sure he was talking about abortion in situations where there are no special circumstances, like threat to the mother's health. And let's face it, the vast majority of abortions like that. Many people have abortions as a form of contraception, because the baby is a girl, out of fear of poverty, because it's not convenient (e.g. career-wise), etc. Those cases are precisely a modern-day form of burying babies alive, and one of the clearest indications of the utter decadence of this age.

Technically there isn't even a child there in the first place, It's an underdeveloped fetus still taking roots. So you're practically killing a fetus or in most cases, nothing since a simple pill would do the trick. Grow up.


<-- Pro Abortion. Your body, Your choice. Not everyone is ready to be a parent, Better to just have an abortion if you're going to make your future child miserable or a future drug addict by your unfit parenting skills.

It's not about "her body," genius. That hackneyed old copout "Oh, it's my body, I can do what I want with it"  is the worst ever.

Aside from religious concerns (A Muslim can't actually say, "Oh, I can do with my body as I please;" our bodies are not ours, but belong to God and are used by us in trust), it is not even correct from a biological perspective. In abortion, a woman doesn't do something to her body; she destroys someone else's. That someone else being her own child, making it doubly depraved and callous.

She destroys something that hasn't even taken roots yet, a fetus is the size of a pea and technically not even alive yet. Your not destroying anyone's life, Your halting before life takes it's place.  Abortion should be excercised in case of unfit parenting, rape, incest or if a child is known to be deformed. But then again it's all upto you. I stick with my opinion, won't change it.

Yes, of course it's the same. All human beings have the right to life no matter what. Don't want the child? Adoption. End of story.

The only time I can see abortion as being permitted is if both mother and child would die without it. It is better to lose one life (the child's) than to lose two lives. Otherwise, there isn't an excuse in my opinion.

Adoption, adoption, adoption, and modern medicine. The solutions to those problems, none of which involves murder.

That's hardly a solution to anything, Go through 9 months of labour and pain for an illegimate child of a man who raped you. :lol: Grow up.

Excuse me?  I'm the one that needs to grow up?  No, I think it's you.  Your ignorance knows no bounds, does it El Cid?  What do you think that the raped women have done for thousands of years?  Oh yeah.  They went through 9 months of pregnancy (oh wait, labour doesn't last for 9 months ... you aren't in the medical field, are you?) and then labour and childbirth whether they wanted to or not.  Is it fair?  No.  Is murdering an innocent child going to even the score and make things better?  Of course not.  Life is sacred and everybody has a right to it.  If there was an illegitimate (you spelled that word wrong, by the way) child in the jahilliya period, then it would have been buried.  In modern times, abortion is the new burial.  Shall we see what the Qur'an has to say about such things?
 
إذا الشمس كورت
وإذا النجوم انكدرت
وإذا الجبال سيرت
وإذا العشار عطلت
وإذا الوحوش حشرت
وإذا البحار سجرت
وإذا النفوس زوجت
وإذا الموءودة سئلت
بأي ذنب قتلت
وإذا الصحف نشرت
وإذا السماء كشطت
وإذا الجحيم سعرت
وإذا الجنة أزلفت
علمت نفس ما أحضرت
 
Do not get me wrong, I have the utmost compassion and sympathy for women that are raped.  Rapists deserve nothing but the most painful death imaginable.  And if I knew a woman that was raped, I would do everything in my power to make sure that she was taken care of; physically and emotionally.  Rape is a living hell, and I understand that.  I just don't think that it's a justification for murder.  But maybe it's just me.  I don't know why, but somehow I get the feeling that Allah (swt) agrees with me.  Maybe it's the Qur'an that indicates so.  :donno:

Such as?

 

I can't see how abortion in this day and age should even be an option.

 

I believe it's just as bad as burying your child alive.

Until a fetus is viable outside the body it isnt 'someone elses body', its entirely dependent on the females body to survive and so is in effect an extention of her body. If the fetus's continued growth is judged to be detrimental to the health of the female most marja's and most sane people would not suggest that she should be forced to continue with the pregnancy. The mothers health takes priority for a reason; there is clearly not an equality between the mother and the fetus growing inside her.

Abortion is not allowed after the implantation of the [fertilized] ovum [on the lining of the womb], except if the mother’s life is in danger. In this case, it would be permissible to abort the foetus as long as the soul has not entered into it; after the entering of the soul, it is not permissible at all.

From Sayed Ali Sistani's Q&A.

subhan'Allah, I didn't know that Sayed Sistani was insane. subhan'Allah.

I have proven to you that abortion is haraam, both from the Qur'an and from an Usuli scholar's opinion. If you still disagree, please change your religion on your profile to something besides Shia Islam. Anortion is not allowed in Shia Islam except if he mothers life is in danger, and even then it is impermissible after the soul enters.

Did you read my post or skip read it and assume to know what it said? the fatwa says that you can abort a baby when the mother life is in danger, which is what i said any sane person would agree with. We cant know when a soul has permanently entered a body, what we have is a situation where a baby can live outside the body and cant. If it cant live outside the body then the taking of the baby is described as an abortion. If it can live outside the body (be it with medical assistance) it is a induced early birth. In the UK, both these circumstances happen to protect the life of the mother if she is in agreement for them to take place. That seems entirely reasonable to me. It is inhumane to force a pregnancy that risks the life of the mother, she should be given the option to terminate or deliver early if its possible.  Sometimes women will decide to continue with a pregnancy that risks her life and that is their right also, but if a woman already has the responsibility of other children, it is probably less likely she would do that - its a moral gray area.

    • @Fakeha Not sure what your problem is. Can you please explain more?
    • Quran says: "it is no wrong for a Momin to keep the wish to marry a woman but do not keep secret friendship". 1st point allows to wish for marriage and wish comes when you want some person to be with you and that's love. 2nd point forbids from girl friend / boy friend relationship.  @Waseem162 and @Islandsandmirrors Make peace 
    • Allow me to go through the thought process with you,   So there is a universe with a huge complexity in it, it seems you want to know where and how it came into existence. We know it came, and there was nothing before it so if God created the Universe then how did he come/exist prior to something that wasn't there? Scientifically, space and time are bound, if you live in space you are bound by time, but time isn't absolute so it would be very much possible that if you were of no matter at all and 'existed' outside the realm of space then time isn't something that applies for you. The best way I imagine it is as imagine a train travelling across the earth, the universe is that train, it is moving and the movement is time, everything outside the train, the earth itself is 'God' he can see the train move but doesn't matter where it moves it is still within his grasp, it makes no difference it's position to his existence, he is just there. So due to space-time link, it is very much possible for God to exist given his nature which is thoroughly explained in the Quran. Now how can I be so sure God created the Universe? Think about the laws of the Universe. They are absolute and doesn't matter where you are, you cannot change them, e.g. you cannot destroy or create matter for example. And before your atheist friends attack you with this, you can change some things like the boiling point of water for example, but that isn't one of the natural laws that's just a property. So for the Universe to exist something had to happen, a reaction, matter + anti-matter, blast of energy whatever you want you can choose. However, whatever it was it would have to still follow a set of rules, like for matter and anti-matter to react, there are laws of nature that dictate they will react. So where did the foundation rules of the Universe come from? If there was nothing prior how could they have existed? All you need to do it look into the complexity of nature and you will know something is up. Now here's an 'offence' question for you, if God doesn't exist wouldn't it be all about survival then? Why don't we look up to thieves, rapists, murderers etc. who live only for themselves? they are going to disappear into a void at the end of life, so no matter what you do it has no impact and you will never feel anybody else's pain because you can't switch bodies, no accountability so why don't we go mad? even better, why don't we all just commit suicide? If your life is a struggle and you're not rich enjoying all the pleasures of the world, it would make perfect sense to just kill all ourselves. But what about life and experiencing it? Well, it makes no difference whether you lived 1 year or 100 years if it is all going to perish. Imagine I told you to build a castle as glorious as you can, once you're done I will destroy it all, would you bother? If you knew it will perish immediately is there a point? Would you buy a house if you knew it would be knocked down? Nope, so why invest time and pain into a life that will soon terminate and you don't even know when! Plus nobody can argue with you about morality because it would have no foundation, seize to exist if there is no 'purpose' for anything. This is the reality of the atheist position it, to me seems a lot worse than one with hope in something greater.  So as a challenge, can you prove to me it is bad to kill someone I don't like if I knew I would never be caught, punished or held accountable? Although there are many more points, I will leave it there. for the time being.
    • When the ground is slippery,the chances of slipping increase exponentially. Although Ahle kitab i.e Christians,Jews etc are pak according to Ayatollah Sistani.(But you cannot eat meat cooked by them unless you are sure that it is halal) http://www.sistani.org/english/qa/01120/ If you can find another place to live then it is better for you else you can check the above link and act accordingly.If you feel that you will fall in to sinning that you MUST look for other accomodations.  
    • That's the point. That there wasn't anything for his enemies to say that you were weak before how could you now say that you are a Prophet while it can be your obsession right now. But those people took those things seriously. They took it serious and you yourself admitted that none can be like him in this present age and now you believe that he wasn't ordinary but extraordinary. You seem to reject your views bro and that's a good sign. You think that God is not wise to let loopholes in prophethood that anyone may come and claim in such way?  You should learn the story of Hazrat Ibrahim a.s who said that weak is not God while implying towards setting sun, moon and heavenly bodies. No one could pass the seive of Prophet and Imamate except those who are Prophets and Imams. Anyone who does so will be humiliated and die a miserable life.  The weaknesses which sunni aqeedah has let Ghulam Ahmed to claim Prophethood and Imamate. While he failed in the infallibility test of shia faith. If anyone who turns back from shia belief to claim imamate, he would seek help from sunni aqeedah because shia aqeedah cannot be tempered or violated.
