In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

Last Wednesday, Alabama passed a near-total abortion ban. Similar restrictive bills have been introduced in Georgia, Indiana, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, Washington and Mississippi. This left many American Muslims wondering where their beliefs fit within the political discourse.

“What is Islam’s stance on abortion?”
Alhamdulillah, the answer was not far. Since the law was passed less than a week ago, our publication “Islam and the Abortion Debate”, as well as the accompanying infographic and animated video, have been shared tens of thousands of times on social media and have collectively garnered over 200k views. Here are some comments we received from our followers:
“May Allah reward Yaqeen Institute for providing the Islamic perspective side by side other theological aspects on this issue. Your presentation is comprehensive and the images have made it easy to understand the information. This is truly timely.”
“This is a such a clear and concise explanation of a controversial topic. I truly appreciate the effort in creating a visual, easily digestible informational piece that is greatly needed in our community and beyond. This is invaluable. The language used is easily understood, the graphics are simple yet perfect compliments to the language, and the sub topics covered are thoughtful and poignant. Thank you.”
“You guys absolutely rock. This is such a great piece of work, insightful, easy to understand and I think very much needed given it's not discussed enough. Keep up the excellent work.”
