It is not better to take a child's life because you fear they will have a life of poverty.
The Noble Qur'an Al-Israa 17:31
And kill not your children for fear of poverty. We provide for them and for you. Surely, the killing of them is a great sin.
The Noble Qur'an Al-An'aam 6:151
Say (O Muhammad SAW): "Come, I will recite what your Lord has prohibited you from: Join not anything in worship with Him; be good and dutiful to your parents; kill not your children because of poverty - We provide sustenance for you and for them; come not near to Al-Faw?hish (shameful sins, illegal sexual intercourse, etc.) whether committed openly or secretly, and kill not anyone whom All?h has forbidden, except for a just cause (according to Isl?mic law).

salaam sister sufia, my heart goes out to u with regards to ur miscarriage, like ur self i had 3.n yes i know how it felt, u know i have been through real tough times with no one helping at the time i need, yet like urself i never once complained about having so many children. i really cannot understand those women who feel that their carears are over coz of their kids, for me personally i think that mine has just started. i know for a fact that when ppl change the way they think into a positive thought then everything becomes clear.
well all i can say to that brother is that i wish i asnt so educated...coz its only the educated who have abortions not the illiterate..and especially in the west...not saying that ppl back home dont coz they do....but again most are more likely to be educated...
i have 7 children but dont want no more...wonder what the quran says about contraception????..i mean were not killing a child just stopping from haveing anymore.
