Divorce During Pregnancy And Baby Shower

Question

My husband divorced me during pregnancy. Is he allowed to do that?

Is it haram to find out the sex of the baby doing an ultrasound?

Is it haram to have a baby shower?


Answer

Thank you for writing to us. One can divorce his wife during the pregnancy. However, in this case the iddah will extend to the birth of the child. It will not remain confined to three menstrual cycles (which discontinue during this time) or three months. We believe there is nothing wrong with finding the sex of the baby. Nor is there any problem with the baby shower.
