5226: Reward for patience when miscarrying a foetus who had a soul

Does the hadeeth “Whoever loses three children who had not reached the age of puberty…” include miscarried foetuses into whom the soul had already been breathed?

Published Date: 1999-09-28

Praise be to Allaah.

We put this question to Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen, may Allaah preserve him, who answered as follows:

Yes, they are included, but they are not like children who have been born and to whom one has developed an attachment.

Question: but will a person get the same reward?

Answer: yes, we hope so.

And Allaah knows best.

Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen
