Abstract

Concerned about giving women fatwas that a 4-month-old baby can be aborted, based on the views found in classical Islamic law, Hafsa Kesgin's book has helped him write. In addition, Hafsa Kesgin stated that there is no study in the type of book that combines positive law and Islamic law in any type of book. Her desire to make a contribution to this deficiency led to the emergence of this study. The book consists of a short introduction and five main titles. The author dealt with the subject in terms of medicine, previous sharia, sociology, positive law, and Islamic law. It can be said that the author, who hopes that her work will be instrumental in helping another baby cling to life, is working toward society. At the same time, it can be stated that this work can be one of the beginning books for those who make academic studies on the subject, and it will be a good guide for reaching classical and contemporary sources from various sciences about abortion. This study aimed to examine this work.
