{Promoting Family Planning}
"Family planning is not about stopping Muslim generations, it is about saving the lives of mothers and their babies" - Said Mohammad Anwar, member of Afghanistan's General Council of Religious Scholars.
He is one of the 150 religious scholars from across Kunar, Nooristan, Nangarhar and Laghman provinces who came together in 2014 to discuss family planning in the light of Islamic teachings from the holy Quran and the words of Prophet Mohammad.
"In Afghanistan, people wrongly believe that family planning and birth spacing is forbidden by Sharia law, and this misconception highly contributes to the gap between knowledge and practice of family planning"
