As important as your husband's career may be, it cannot be more important than obeying Almighty God or having children. I am sure he is somehow able to adjust his working schedule during the holy month to be able to see you, and try to work around your ovulation time. He can get some time off work during the night, for whatever reason, even if it's unpaid leave. 

However, you must both know that it will be haram and sinful for him or you to break your fast for this purpose, and the worst case scenario is for him is to either take a night off, or wait until after the ending of the holy month. 

You are certainly a noble believer, and hence you ask this question, but if you break your fast for such an invalid reason, this guilt will always be with you, so it is always best to abide by the shar'i requirements and always have hope in Allah ta'ala who will accommodate for all our needs, all in due time.

With prayers for your success.

Mut'ah marriage is a way to save people from falling into sinful acts but such type of marriage has conditions which must be fulfilled. If you need to save yourself from falling into sinful act through going for Mut'ah marriage, you need to get your Muslim wife's permission if you want to do the Mut'ah with a woman from People of Book (Ahlul Kitab) like Christians or Jews.

Wassalam.

Bleeding of menstruation which takes place once in every month for at least three days and up to ten days, is called in jurisprudence as Haydh حيض during which no Salaah is allowed for the female. Any other bleeding which is not Haydh does not allow the female to stop praying. Estihadha is a bleeding which has nothing to do with menstruation and female must perform her Salah  (Namaz) after performing a Wudhu for every Salah if the bleeding is in small quality which means the pad is not filled by blood. If the blood fills the whole pad but it does not leak out of it, one Ghusl must be added  before Fajr Prayers. If the bleeding is heavy that the  blood fills the whole pad and leaks out of it then three Ghusl must be performed; one before Fajr Salah, second before Noon for Dhuhr and Assr prayer and third before Maghrib, for Maghrib and Isha prayer.

Wassalam.

1. Abortion is forbidden. A child is a human with a right to life regardless of how it is conceived. However, some scholars allow abortion in this situation if keeping the child is psychologically or personally traumatic. It is certainly not a requirement to abort the child.

2. "No man may marry her after that" - who said that? Yes, some people have some backwards ideas about virginity or purity or marrying a woman with kids, but these ideas are from people, not Islam. If the woman wishes to marry, inshallah she will find the right husband. Maybe she would not want to be married to someone who thinks in a wrong way. 

Allah is merciful and just. It would not be merciful or just for Allah to punish the victim in this situation by forcing more consequences on her after the first trauma.

As long as the infant child you are currently breastfeeding has not reached the age of weaning, then there is no shar'i problem in continuing to breastfeed the baby.

Of course, you should consult your doctor and ask if continuing to breastfeed while pregnant will make you weak, or bring about any other problems. 

And Allah knows best.

From a fiqhi perspective, a wife is able to petition for divorce, and she can forfeit her mahr and request that her husband divorces her. 

However, in this specific case of the husband not able to make his wife pregnant, are there other underlying problems, or is it only this issue. If it is only this issue, what if it was the other way around, where the wife was not able to fall pregnant, would it be nice for the husband to divorce her on such grounds alone? 

There might be alternative options to take, and some patience as well. Of course, if there are other problems that contribute to the wife making such a decision, then that is something else, and she should consult her family and wise people.

With prayers for your success.

Bismillah, 

Asalamu Alaykom, 

If one needs to expose their private parts to a doctor for necessary medical reasons then it is permissible. Of course one should only show the part which is absolutely necessary and not more than is needed. One should also visit the doctor of the same gender. 

Some ulema also mention for the doctor to look at the private parts via a mirror rather than directly.

May Allah grant you success

Thank you for your question. The times of conception and pregnancy are of special importance to a child's soul and so the sins of the parents during that time do have a negative impact. And Allah knows best.

May you always be successful

Allah says in Quran ( And your Lord creates whatever He wills and chooses, no choice have they.) 28:68.

When the zygote is formed, it means that it was created by Allah, so, no one has the right to terminate the pregnancy. Your husband has no right to kill this embryo by abortion. You need to tell him that he  should not object on the Wisdom and Mercy of Allah which created this embryo. No one knows what is the future of this child but Allah who created it.

Abortion is type of killing of a human being and it is a major sin and has a penalty called  Diyah like the penalty of killing. The only case in which abortion can be allowed is when the life of the mother is in danger because f the pregnancy and there was no way to save the life of the mother but only by abortion.

No need for Ghusl in this case and even it does not harm your fasting. Inserting medical device inside the body does not mean Janabah, so, it does not invalidate your purity and does not need neither Ghusl not Wudhu.
