Issues of The Islamic Faith

  • Abortion
  • Marriage

Abortion

Abortion is not directly mentioned in the Qur'an, but it does condemn killing (except in the case of defense or capital punishment). Abortion use to be permitted, but only up to day 40 of pregnancy, and sometimes day 120

Marriage

Islam is a strong advocate of marriage. It is considered a moral safeguard and a social necessity. The groom must gift his bride during marriage.

Gay marriage or any type of homosexuality is not only considered a sin, but a crime under Islamic Law.

In the event of a problem in a marriage, a man may divorce his wife. He cannot divorce her for no reason.
