Breastfeeding a child during pregnancy

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
I am breastfeeding my child who is ten months old, and I am now pregnant. Should I stop breastfeeding my child because of pregnancy? Or should I continue to breastfeed despite the fact that I am pregnant? Is breastfeeding a child whilst pregnant haraam or halaal? I hope that you can answer my question quickly.

Praise be to Allaah.

The question of breastfeeding a child during pregnancy should be referred to a capable and trustworthy doctor. If he says that breastfeeding the child will not harm the foetus or the nursing infant, then there is no reason not to do it and it is permissible.

But if it will harm your child or the foetus, then do not breastfeed him. And Allaah knows best.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
