Miscarriage before 120 days



I wanted to ask what happens to the fetus if miscarriage happens before 120 days ( which is when the soul is breathe into the fetus).Does this baby go to Jannah?Will this baby ask for its parents on the day of judgement? JZK


Alaykum Salam,

See “Miscarriage – Loss of a child”  at Living Islam.

Here are some excerpts:

In the Musnad of `Abd ibn Humayd from Mu`adh, the Prophet said, upon him peace: “No two Muslims lost three children except Allah will cause the two parents to enter Paradise through the favor of His mercy toward them.” They said, “What about two, Messenger of Allah?” He said, “Two also.” They said, “And one?” He said, “[Even] the miscarried child will certainly drag its mother [and father, see below] with its umbilical cord to Paradise!”

The Prophet MHMD said, upon him peace, “The miscarried child will pester its glorious and mighty Lord for His entering its two parents into the Fire until it is told, ‘O miscarried child that pesters its Lord! Enter your father and mother into Paradise.’ Then it will drag them with its umbilical cord until it makes them enter Paradise.” Ibn Majah and Abu Ya`la from `Ali.

And again, “By the One in Whose hand is my soul, truly the miscarried child will certainly drag its mother with its umbilical cord to Paradise, provided one expects recompense [for SABR].” Ibn Majah and Ahmad from Mu`adh.
