Delaying weaning the child after two years

Q 7: Is it permissible to delay weaning a baby after the two years prescribed in the Qur'an?

A: This is permissible if there is a need for delay. Also, it is permissible to wean a baby before they complete two years of age if this is for their benefit. However, the basic rule is that a baby is breast-fed for two years and this should not be changed unless there is an urgent need requiring this change.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
