Abortion before 120 days
Q: Is abortion (for reasons other than necessity) permitted prior to ensoulment 120 days into pregnancy?
A: Prior to ensoulment, it is permitted with the agreement of the husband and wife. Some considered it to be disliked. Many contemporary scholars have said that it occurs 40 days after conceivement. Abu Hanifah said that it occurs when the form of the foetus is clearly visible.
