If A Woman Dies While Pregnant, How Will She Be Buried? by Lukgaf(m): 7:55am On Dec 31, 2021
If the woman dies while her baby is also dead, they will be buried together without attempting to separate them. This is because any attempt to separate them after it is certain that both of them are dead is reproachful, and this is forbidden. A believer must not be reproached whether he/she is alive or dead; it is forbidden. For this reason, they will be buried together.

However, after she is dead, if the baby shows a sign of being alive, and the midwife says if the baby is removed from her and kept in an incubator he/she will survive if Allaah wills, especially if the baby is up to about eight months; if this is declared, then we will ask them to operate her so as to rescue the child. This is the Sharee’ah of Allaah.

As for the belief which states that if a woman dies while pregnant she must not be buried with the baby so that it doesn’t result to ceaseless deaths in her family according to the belief of the disbelievers, we have no concern about that belief. Islaam says they should be buried together because any attempt to separate them is reproachful and Islaam prohibits reproaching a person who is dead.

If the pregnant woman is from the people of the book and her husband is a Muslim since it is permissible to marry them, and the child inside her is a Muslim since her husband is a Muslim (in addition to the fact that every child is born in a state of fitrah), both the mother and the child are dead, how are they to be buried? Shaykh al-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rohimohuLlaahu ta’ala) said that the woman will be buried at a space in between the graveyard of the Muslims and that of the people of the book. Since the mother is a Christian while the child is a Muslim, she will be buried in such a way that she backs the Qiblah, this is because if she backs the Qiblah then automatically the baby will be facing the Qiblah. So that is how they will be buried.

All children of Prophet Adam(AS) are born Muslims, their parents only change their belief after birth

Jazaakumullahu khayran, Islam treats every single aspect of life, that alone is enough to know that Islam is the one true religion from Allah,

how Islam treats Banking and Finance alone is enough to know that Islam is the only true religion of God May God Almighty Guide us All to d right path

"I don't believe that there no god/God but Allah."
"I don't believe that Muhammad is God's Holy Prophet."
"I don't believe that Islam is the Only True Religion."
" I don't believe in lā ʾilāha ʾillā-llāh, muhammadun rasūlu-llāh."


We don't need religion to teach us common sense. It is irrational to attempt to remove dead fetus from a dead woman's womb before burial.

Does it really matter how they are buried?

Wow, so the Muslims do not remove the foetus before burying the dead?

I tot the issue of separating dead mother from baby has to do with medical reason


Which one is people of the book?

Every religion says this about their religion.

Just as you will say Islam is not a religion but a way of life.

The Christians and every other religion says the same thing.

Y'all are just brain washed motherf*ckers
