Husband forcing pregnancy



My husband of 20 years is forcing me to get pregnant. We have a child already but I feel I am in no state to bear another child. I have mental health issues & injured my back severely in the past. I have pain & not stable mentally.


Alaykum Salam,

Take your husband by the hand, tell him all this gently and patiently. Explain to him the duress it causes you and may further cause you and the family as a whole. Parenthood is a joint fruit of love and understanding, not of force, and children repay their parents accordingly here and hereafter. Ask for his understanding and offer for the both of you to consult a third party for advice such as an elderly relative or even counseling. All the while pray the Salat of Consultation (istikhara) and recite Ya Halim, Ya Hafiz x100 daily for spiritual strength and protection.
