As-salaam-mu-alaikum WaraaH Matullahi Wa barakaatuh,
My wife and i have been married for almost five years, and we have three children, ages 4, 2 & 9 months old.
We recently discovered that my wife is pregnant again, about 6 weeks.
Please explain the mas’alah on abortion, as she constantly has lower back pain. Her doctor mentioned that this is due to small spacing of the first three children.
The prenancy with the last one was especially difficult, and is currently being breastfed.
The other thing is being able to cope with the three is a task on its own. we feel that should there be another one, it may cause the others to be neglected.
We have been using precaution, but it never had any effect.
Please provide an answer asap, as we do not want anyone to find out about it and the sooner the better.
