Breastfeeding in the Light of Islamic Law
Breastfeeding is one of the matters that Islamic Sharia has given great importance. This is due to its importance and the fact that it replaces lineage in several matters, and the provisions of breastfeeding are many, including those related to the nursing mother and what pertains to the infant, as well as those related to and consequent on the milk itself. The provisions of breastfeeding in Islam are many, including the provisions of fasting for a nursing mother and the mother’s right to receive the reward for breastfeeding her child, in the event that she is divorced, or revocable and her waiting period has expired, or if she is in the waiting period of death. Also Islam fully supports adoption and encourages sponsoring orphans, rearing them, treating them kindly and seeing to their needs and interests. But adoption in Islamic law has rules and conditions that must be adhered to. there are some differences between Islam and the present system in other cultures, when we come to the implications and legal consequences of adoption. The rules come directly from the Quran, which gives specific rules about the legal relationship between a child and his/her adoptive family. Muslim women who adopt children may try to breastfeed these children in accordance with the provisions of Islamic Shariah law, which is to breastfeed the infant from three to five full feedings or more when the child is less than two years old.
