Allah has banned killing children before birth (abortion, birth control) together with the killing of children after birth. He said don’t kill your children simply because you don’t have enough to feed them. In this respect, He addressed both the victim children and the killer parents.

The state bans hunting of birds and looks after the production of cattle, opposing the killing of animals, but why should it allow the killing of infants before birth? Why are the Muslims bent upon killing human beings while conserving wild life and cattle?

The Quran says Allah gives food (rizq) to the newborn as well as the parents.

Allah has promised rizq but not allowed extravagance. If you abstain from extravagance then the children you don’t kill become grown men who will earn more rizq. In old days your ancestors used to eat just one bread and sustain two children, but now those two are two hundred and from one family many families have emerged. And food is still being provided by Allah.

Hazrat Ibrahim had said to Allah please give food only to the Muslims and not to those who don’t believe because the non-believer will destroy your faith. Allah told his beloved prophet that he would give rizq to both the believers and the non-believers. “I am not the Provider (Rabb) of Muslims only but Rabb of all the worlds”. That is why Allah says to us that we should not put up publicity for contraception. I can swear that the ministers who recommend birth control have a dozen children each at home.

Allah also forbade the evil of zina (fornication) or the sexual act. He said don’t go near it because it is extreme shame and dishonour. If you do fornication (sex with anyone other than wife) my mistake then do penance (tauba). One very good solution is to keep the women behind veil. Women should not be allowed to roam in the markets without a veil (nanga). Another way of avoidance of zina is by keeping your gaze to the ground and not look at other women.
