Family planning is for child spacing. The health of the women is priority. During pregnancy and labor, she goes through a lot of stress and it is important for her to rest after the process so that her body can recover fully and the new born child also develop properly. Islam does not want hardship for anyone and it permits breastfeeding for 24 months, which is a way of spacing a child. Both traditional and religious leaders should not stop promoting and talking about the benefits of family planning.
