Islam’s important role in eradicating social evils -3
The horrendous practice of infanticide or the intentional killing of children has been prevalent since the ancient times. Unfortunately, even in modern times, despite the development in science and technology, this evil practice still continues in some thickly populated and poverty-struck regions of the world.
During the Jahilia Period, i.e. before the spread of Islam, female infanticide was rampant. The female infants were buried alive by their father as they were considered to be a disgrace in the society. Due to the continuous war between the Arab tribes sons were considered to be a source of power to them whereas the girls made them the target of embarrassing raids. Often during the times of war the young girls would be taken as captives by the enemy and were not returned after the war got over. This was the primary reason why female infanticide was common in the pre-Islamic days in Arabia.
Thankfully, the advent of Islam ushered in a new era of equality, fraternity, justice and morality. Thus, the dismal scenario was transformed due to the Islamic revolution and many inhuman practices and age-old customs were brought to an end.
