No, we do not have such rule preventing pregnant woman from visiting graveyards.


Child does not belong to the father only but belongs to both father and mother. Father is fully responsible for all livelihood expenses of the child and the mother, while mother is not responsible to spend on the child even if she is rich.

The Prophet Muhammad has ordered every one to look after his mother, his mother, his mother, then his father.

In the unfortunate situation of separation between father and mother, mother has the right of custody during the childhood years ( 2 years for boy and 7 years for girl) then custody will be for the father.



Thank you for your question. I would recommend that you contact the office of your Marja with the specifics of your case. Although the usual ruling is that it is not allowed (and this will be applicable in most circumstances and is also the applicable rule according to the limited information you have given here), there have been exceptions for when the woman who has become pregnant in a mutah marriage is allowed to abort before 4 months when the difficulty she would face from being accused would have been too much for her to bear and there is absolutely no other way that an abortion can be avoided (like traveling to another place and having the baby). I am posting the ruling from the office of Sayyid Sistani (hA) below which is in Arabic for further reference:

السؤال: امرأة حملت بعقد زواج منقطع وتخشى على سمعتها والعار، وخاصة من أهلها ومعارفها، فهل يجوز لها إسقاط الجنين قبل الأشهر الأربعة أو حتى بعدها؟

الجواب: أمّا قبل ولوج الروح فيه فإن كان ما تواجهه من الحرج بسبب انكشاف أمرها بحدٍّ لا يُتحمّل عادة ولم يكن هناك طريق للمنع من ذلك - ولو بأن تسافر إلى أيِّ بلد آخر وتسكن فيه حتى تضع الحمل - جاز لها الإجهاض، وأما بعد ولوج الروج فلا يجوز الاجهاض مطلقا حتى على الاحوط اذا كانت تتضرر أو تقع في حرج شديد من بقائه.

May you always be successful.

No, it is not allowed, and both parties must be responsible towards the pregnancy and their child. This is the least of moral commitment the man has towards her and their baby as well.

With prayers for your success.
