وَاِذَا الۡمَوۡءٗدَةُ سُٮِٕلَتۡ‏ ﴿۸﴾

And when the female child buried alive is questioned (7) about.

So that the one who is going to bury her should be sentenced to death. And if he is a polytheist then he should be given the punishment of both murder and polytheism. That, which is stated in the Hadith that both WAAIDA and MAUOODA will be sent into Hell. WAAIDA is that lady who throws herself in the fire willfully, and MAUOODA is that lady who is thrown into the fire in accordance with a custom, as was the case in India where the Hindu wife, after the death of her husband she was burnt alive with him. This does not denote minor daughters. Thus, there is no inconsistency between the verses and the Hadith.

Surah Name : At-Takweer   Surah Number : 81   Ayat Number: 8
Topic : Girl Child

بِاَىِّ ذَنۡۢبٍ قُتِلَتۡ‌ۚ‏ ﴿۹﴾

For what crime was she killed (8)?

It means those minor daughters of the infidels of Arabia whom they would bury alive out of poverty or for polytheistic worship will be questioned for what crime had your parents killed you? From this emerge a few issues:

1. It is forbidden to kill minor children of the infidels if the infidels are combatants.

2, On that day, Allah Almighty will grant minor children such intelligence that they would be able to testify against their guiltless and innocent killing.

3. When life is put in the foetus, aborting it is totally forbidden as this is equal to murder.

4. Hazrat Abdullah ibn Abbas (May Allah be Pleased with him) had deduced from this verse that the minor children of the infidels would not be sent into Hell because since their killing was unlawful, then how would Allah Almighty send them into Hell?

5. Even though the infidels may be the people of FATRAT (period when Divine guidance had been stopped in this case between the time of Hazrat Isa and the advent of the Prophetic mission of our Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم they will be punished for their cruelty, in the same manner as the oppressive animals would be avenged for their cruelty perpetrated on the oppressed animals.
