Woman who didn’t want the baby – A dangerous story

A worried woman went to her Doctor and said :

‘Doctor, I have a serious problem and desperately need your help!

My baby is not even 1 yr. old and I’m pregnant again. I don’t want kids so close together.’

So the doctor said: ‘Ok, and what do you want me to do?’

She said: ‘I want you to perform an abortion, and I’m counting on your help with this.’

The doctor thought for a little, and after some silence he said to the lady:

‘I think I have a better solution for your problem. It’s less dangerous for you too.’

She smiled, thinking that the doctor was going to accept her request.

Then he continued: ‘You see, in order for you not to have to take care of 2 babies at the same time, let’s kill the one in your arms. This way, you could rest some before the other one is born. If we’re going to kill one of them, it doesn’t matter which one it is. There would be no risk for your body if you chose the one in your arms.

The lady was horrified and said: ‘No doctor! How terrible! It’s a crime to kill a child!

‘I agree’, the doctor replied. ‘But you seemed to be ok with it, so I thought maybe that was the best solution.

The doctor smiled, realizing that he had made his point. He convinced the mom that there is no difference in killing a child that’s already been born and one that’s still in the womb. The crime is the same!

Moral: Abortion is the same as killing. No matter the name given to it.

    Hey, everyone. In my point of view, its all about perception. The way you live, your culture is, it dependence…

    MashAllah good to know we have learned ppl here, may Allah bless you all. I would like 2 use this plateform to educate u all about shirk, meaning asking some 1 else instead of ALLAH subhanatallah. my bro n sis remember a true muslim (or say follower) is the 1, who not only offers prayers to thank ALLAH but aslo only n only asks n believes that it is only ALLAH who is the almighty ruler and benefactor (provider). all humans which includes all prophets and saints were only human and therefore they r dead now (ALLAH will live n never die). those who r no more but their memories r with us as they were very honoured humans, so best we can do 4 them is that we recite darud 4 them and ask/ pray ALLAH subhanatallah to make us naik (pios) as them so that we can be remembered in times to come n specially can be passed in last test (akhrut). but again remeber the prays dua is only 2 be made to ALLAH and not any one else. All praises for ALLAH the most benevolent most merciful.

    plz brothers n sisters help me i educating others that only n only ALLAH is asked 4 help. no dead or living human should be asked for fulfilment of dua/murads.

    ALLAH is the only 1 to fulfill ur requests / duas/ murad, so when u ask through/ or some one else its simple shirk.

    may ALLAH guide us all in the rightous way and save us all from shirk, which HE (ALLAH) will never forgive.

    In Islam every day is Mother’s Day (Status of Mother in Islam)

    One day a man came to see the Prophet Muhammad, peace
    and blessings be upon him and his progeny. It seemed that he was trying to
    solve something but couldn’t quite work it out. So he asked the Prophet
    Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him and his progeny. “Tell me, O Prophet
    of Allah! I have many relatives and many friends whom I love, and whom I wish to
    care for and help. But I often find it difficult to decide which of them has the
    greatest claim upon me? Which of them should come first?” The Prophet Muhammad,
    peace and blessings be upon him and his progeny replied immediately, “Your
    mother should come first and before all others.”

    The man was very pleased to have this clear guidance from the Prophet
    Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him and his progeny. But of course there
    were all his other relatives and his friends, so he asked again: “And after my
    mother, who has the greatest claim upon me?” The Prophet Muhammad’s, peace and
    blessings be upon him and his progeny reply this second time surprised him.
    “Your mother!” he said again.

    The man wondered why the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him
    and his progeny was repeating himself. Perhaps he had not spoken clearly, the
    man thought, so he asked the question again, “What I want to know is, after my
    mother, who has the greatest claim upon me? Again the Prophet Muhammad, peace
    and blessings be upon him and his progeny said “your mother!”

    Your mother, your mother, your mother!

    The Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him and his progeny had now
    said it three times. Slowly, the man realized why he had done so. The Prophet
    Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him and his progeny means that my mother
    is extremely important, so much so that my duty to her must be stressed over and
    over again. Even so, the man’s thoughts ran on, “what about all the others I
    love and wish to care for?” Still uncertain and wanting to know more, he once
    again turned to the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him and his
    progeny and said, “and after my mother, who comes after her? Is there anyone
    besides her?” The Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him and his
    progeny then replied “after your mother, your father.” And then? asked the man.
    “Then people who are nearest to you,” said the Prophet Muhammad, peace and
    blessings be upon him and his progeny.

    In universal religion Islam, mother has three
    times more rights over her off springs than their father because of her
    significant and crucial role in their birth, brought-up and home education.

    So dear MOMS why should you think to abort a baby and
    kill him/her, when you were given so importance, high value, highest ranking ever
    given to anybody in the whole universe, the gold/silver/bronze medals are all
    for you father has to compromise just on consolation prize please please please
    stop doing this for the sake of Almighty God and for your good self for the
    better here and hereafter.

    Dear Sara,

    Thanks for this story, really good and I have enjoyed a lot after going through all the comments. Really too emotional and too impressive.

    Killing is crime as one desires to stop the natural chain of human lives. The nature in this way is too strong to decide whether to stop or to continue this natural process of human birth or to let it destroy by cruel insanity. Life is a gift of God which is revealed once only, so try to save it by all means.

  10. Abdelrahman Abudayyeh August 13, 2011 at 4:42 AM #

    Human never estimate the Grace of God for things he doesn’t have, unless he/she consider the ones he has.

    Moral to the story :Performing an abortion or killing a human, they are the same crime. No excuses!

    i had done a speech and a couple of essays on Abortion in school..but i dnt know of a good moral and it would take me a while to get a good one lol
    thanks for it!! 🙂

  13. Farnaznadeem97 August 12, 2011 at 2:14 PM #

    Allah know best what a woman go through. Abortion is only allowed if it is life and death to the woman being..that does not only meaning physical but also mentally. Abortion should not not be easily taken at a whim but should always look towards allah for guidence.

  14. Noorjahan Zackria August 12, 2011 at 1:22 PM #

    y not think before getting pregnent, so many parents around the world r not blessed with a child, its a gift from allaah accept it and enjoy…

    Moral of the Story: Killing of child is crime…………… please stop it. Let it be a born or an unborn child. Love children’s, as they love you much more than you can….

    killing of man and abortion are same kind of crime.

    my contribution as a moral:
    It is easy for us to ignore something we haven’t seen or had with us but difficult for us to erase something we have seen for some time when both are of equal value to us or the unseen even more valuable-as seen in the case of God

    some people are just too lucky to have a baby, I dont see how people reject the Gefit from Allah and try eliminate the fetus organ, So people aren’t just so to be in luck.. they have to probably get an adoption or go to the special bank for babies, anyways you never know what kind of child you could raise, can bring blessing for Allah who is King. but what you don’t have from Allahs plan you just have a complex problem.   

  22. Mohamed Osama August 12, 2011 at 2:48 AM #

    Every abortion is just one more heart that was stopped, two more eyes that will never see, two more hands that will never touch, two more legs that will never run, one more mouth that will never speak…

  23. Abdulaziz August 12, 2011 at 1:59 AM #

    One word: Allah created this baby and he will be responsible for his sustenance and if he is killed in the womb, that is what Allah wrote in his book.

    Quran says
    “… if anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder, or (and) to spread mischief in the land – it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind. And indeed, there came to them Our Messengers with clear proofs, evidences, and signs, even then after that many of them continued to exceed the limits (e.g. by doing oppression unjustly and exceeding beyond the limits set by Allah by committing the major sins) in the land!. “

    A child is a child, hes a living creature whether in a room or on a body…its all the same Allah gave him life so why should we take it away? i dont understand why people think its ok to kill a child in your body but not in your household…

    Abortion, Interest, so many western policies are driving the world to shambles. We muslims must take a stand before the whole world becomes one with such madness

    the most beautiful thing that happens in the life of a woman is when she becomes a mother. This is a great feeling. Even Allah’s love is compared to the mothers. As it is said Allah has the love of 70 mothers.
    Mother is the one who loves her baby beyond her life and limits and she can do anything for the baby. She can never even think of killing her baby, but sadly this feeling arises only after the baby is born…. and she sees the baby. Anyway, Please try not to abort a child. Please take utmost care to prevent pregnancy if not needed, and save your self from the crime of abortion.

    “Be a Mother not a Murderer.” (that should be the title of the story.)

    any life is as precious as yours , you have no right of taking it away … 

  34. Sheikh Saadi August 11, 2011 at 4:57 PM #

    It reminds me of the verdict given by King Solomon, the
    Prophet Solomonpbh, when he decided to cut the baby into two and
    give each half to the two women both of whom claimed to be the rightful mother
    of the baby. 


    The real mother withdrew her claim in favor of the other
    women because she did not want her baby to die. 
    Prophet Solomonpbh knew at once which mother’s claim was


    A mother will not want her baby to die whether the baby is
    in her womb or born already.  But the
    world has changed, and so have the values of people.  The lifestyle of people is now so  unpredictable that anything is possible.

    ‘Have mercy on those on earth and the One in the Heaven will have mercy on you” And we never can tell which of the children will be of more benefits to us.

    Satan is the one who covers the sins by using false names to fool the people. Abortion means killing – and any one who performs an abortion causes pain to the child and psychological pain to herself – she will later ask herself what the baby would have been like, if she was right to get rid of it etc. A mother would always miss the life that was in her stomach and could have been asleep peacefully in her arms, not matter how much work it would have intailed. On the oter hand, Satan wins by ruining two lives. We have to be careful of his vicious plots!!!!!

    The women actually doesn’t know the difference between killing the young baby or the one that isn’t born yet. Which means every person must know that even killing a baby is a crime.

  49. Sharrk_boy August 11, 2011 at 12:19 PM #

    Moral: Crime with closed eyes is as good as with your eyes open.  Like a cat drinking milk with shut eyes, assuming nobody is seeing her.

    Say: “Come, I will rehearse what Allah hath (really) prohibited you from”: Join not anything as equal with Him; be good to your parents; 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: thus doth He command you, that ye may learn wisdom.
    Surah Al-Ana’m 6:151

    1. Allah Almighty is the One and Only Lord and Cherisher.

    the mother should have trust and seek help from God Almighty, not any other;

    2. Allah’s love of us and care for us may?on an infinitely higher plane?be understood by our ideal of parental love, which is purely unselfish.
    Our first duty among our fellow creatures is to our father and mother, whose love leads us to the conception of divine love. Arising from that is the conception of our converse duties to our children.

    she should understand God Almighty’s love for us from the love of her own parents and the love for her child in her arms, to the conception of her duties to her children, both living and potential;

    3. Allah provides sustenance (material and spiritual) not only for us, but for them.

    She should have trust in God Almighty Who will provide for her children as well as for her;

    4.Then come the moral prohibitions against lewdness and all unseemly acts, open or secret.
    Followed by the prohibition of killing or fighting. All these things are conformable to our own interests, and therefore true wisdom from our own point of view.

    She should understand that the act of abortion is a shameful act, whether others know of it or not, and amounts to murder without good reason. The doctor showed her true wisdom, over her own reasoning.

    I found for myself personally that the Holy Quran showed me the moral for any such scenario, ALTHOUGH MY APPLICATION OF THE TEXTS SHOULD NOT BE REGARDED OR TAKEN LITERALLY.

    I used the transalation and commentary of Abdullah Yusuf Ali.
