What Does Sharia Really Say About Abortion in Islam? Abortion is not a simple option of being pro-life or pro-choice, Islam recognizes the nuance.
· Part of Islamic faith is the belief that our bodies are an amanah from God. The Arabic word amanah literally means fulfilling or upholding trusts.
· It is unanimously agreed by the scholars of Islam that abortion without a valid excuse after the soul has entered the fetus is prohibited entirely. (120 days).
