A pregnant women aborted her child intentionally,
what should she do now? Is there any Kaffarah (expiation)?
If the fetus she aborted completed four months, she has committed a heinous sin and must repent to Allah (Glorified be He), be determined not to repeat this action, and pay the Diyah (blood money) to the heirs if they demand it. The Diyah is a new-born female or a male bondsman, estimated at one-tenth of the value of the blood-money for a woman (i.e. Ten camels). There is no Kaffarah upon her, for she killed the fetus intentionally. However, if the fetus did not complete four months, then she has committed a forbidden act and must repent and never repeat it. There is no Diyah upon her in this case.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet, his family and Companions.
