Pro-Choice, Pro-Life, Pro-Tect “Abortion”

by | Apr 25, 2021

In Islam, there are seven severe sins, one of them has to deal with taking someone’s soul unlawfully. Now, imagine if that soul is the one of a child, a baby. Protecting the innocent and the weakest in society is primordial in Islam. That is why infanticides were forbidden in Islam. Some might say that this is only natural; well not for pagan Arabs who used to kill off some of their offspring from fear of poverty or if the child is not of male gender; similarly to what we see nowadays in India. Well, 1400 years ago, Islam put an end to infanticide.

Those will have lost who killed their children in foolishness without knowledge and prohibited what Allah had provided for them, inventing untruth about Allah. They have gone astray and were not [rightly] guided.

Surah Al-Anam (6 – 140)

Infanticide might seem abhorring to most, but what about abortion?!? Some might say, well one is born while the other is not. That is true, but you’re still making the decision to kill (even if unborn). You are deciding to take the soul of another person. Now I hear, well what about the mother, that baby might ruin her life. Possibly, but that unformed sucked-out foetus did not ask to be conceived out of 10 seconds of unprotected pleasure. So, instead of taking responsibility for one’s actions, let’s just do away with Stillborn Embryo. It’s not like the weakest denomination of society would complain or anything…

Once again, we use the slogan “pro-choice” to de-dramatize the situation and even to legitimize a woman’s right to kill. This might seem harsh to some, but the lifestyle of most people is what is in question. This situation reminds me of the lyrics of a song from the group Mes Aïeux:

Your great-great-grandmother, she had fourteen children.

Your great-grandmother had almost as many.

And your grandmother had three, it was enough!

And your mother didn’t want any; you were an accident!

As for you, my girl, you change partners all the time.

When you do something stupid, you get out of it with an abortion.

But there are mornings, you wake up crying,

When you dream at night of a big table surrounded by kids.

This might sound a little lousy because it does not rhyme in English (it sounds better in French, trust me), but you understand the message behind it. The moral of the story, we try to make the woman the victim, but we don’t take a second to look at a dead human as the real victim. For the coming weeks In Sha Allah, we shall speak about areas in Islam that apply to women. Are some of you surprised?!? Islam is not a religion only for men!?! Those who know and understand Islam, fully know that Islam is a religion that curtails to everyone and has been and still is enforcing women’s rights since its inception.

Probability, you won’t Get the Best of Me! – Scientific Proofs in the Quran

If anyone is a betting man, he knows that most of the time he will lose; it is a question of numbers. Winning every time is improbable and practically impossible. When flipping a coin, you have one chance out of two of getting it right. 50%, not bad; but repeat it four times straight; not too confident, are you?

Let’s transpose that example to the prophet Muhammad; he got every single verifiable (with our limited knowledge to date) phenomenon right. Not only he got them right, but most of them are also explained; not just enunciated or left for interpretation. Let’s say there are about 20 scientific/natural phenomenon (Actually, more have been mentioned and others left out since a multitude of authors have done a better job than me explaining them. Plus, 20 seems like a pretty round number, and we don’t want to sound boastful either) that were elucidated 1400 years ago, by an illiterate Arab that had no aspirations to science whatsoever… When you do the math: ½ at the power 20 is ½ x ½ x½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½. That gives you the possibility of 1/1 048 576 of getting it right. That is less than one in a million probability; becoming less and less a betting man…Keep in mind, considering that the questioning is in a yes or no format; true or false to a given question (without formulating the solution and adding all the explanation that comes with it in the Quran and Hadith).

The thing is, it is not because the prophet Muhammad was an expert in astronomy, geology, chemistry, nuclear physics, biology, botany, entomology, oceanology, or even historical science that he got it right all the time. It is because the only thing he got right out of all of this is that he wholeheartedly believed in Allah. All these, verses, signs, scientific phenomenon were not explained or tackled by the prophet Muhammad; they were brought forth by Allah, the All-Knowing.

And with Him are the keys of the unseen; none knows them except Him. And He knows what is on the land and in the sea. Not a leaf falls but that He knows it. And no grain is there within the darknesses of the earth and no moist or dry [thing] but that it is [written] in a clear record.

Surah Al-Anam (6 – 59)
