{17:31} and do not kill your children for fear of poverty; we give them sustenance and yourselves (too); surely to kill them is a great wrong.

{60:12} O Prophet! when believing women come to you giving you a pledge that they will not associate aught with Allah, and will not steal, and will not commit fornication, and will not kill their children, and will not bring a calumny which they have forged of themselves, and will not disobey you in what is good, accept their pledge, and ask forgiveness for them from Allah; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

{6:140} They are lost indeed who kill their children foolishly without knowledge, and forbid what Allah has given to them forging a lie against Allah; they have indeed gone astray, and they are not the followers of the right course.

{6:151}…and do not slay your children for (fear of) poverty-- We provide for you and for them.
