Need Islamic ruling on abortion and when does the ruh enters the baby to pass on to a Muslim couple who asked me about it. The sister is about 2 months pregnant with low blood counts, had two caesarean before, last one about a year ago. The doctor told them that this third one might be dangerous. The girl family is pushing for abortion and also think that the couple do not have any parenting skills so how could they handle a third baby, especially that the husband is not well, going on and off on depression and with financial problems. The sister has no skill to survive on her own with two children and possibly a third children and no family support.
The sister is asking for duah as well for them to be guided to do the right thing for the fear of Allah.
Abortion is haram unless there is certitude about the risk posed to the
mother. As for the time of ensoulment see here.
