I have found out that I am 6 weeks pregnant, around 40 days. I am 40 years old and I have 3 children that are 18, 14 and 4. I am exhausted and I don’t think I am mentally able to have another child. I won’t be able to do proper tarbiyat of my 4 year old or my 14 year son who is at a very rebellious age and he needs a lot of attention. My husband also works a lot and is not as present in raising the kids. I am not able to naturally give birth and have had C sections for all my kids. This would be my 4th C section so It will be a higher risk for me. I want to know if it will be haram for me to abort?
Previously I used to wear hijab and gown. But after marriage started to wear face veil too on request of my husband. The issue is I'm finding it hard to wear face veil here in Australia. I pick and drop my kids, do groceries and take them to swimming etc and find peopabandoning niqab due to dirty looksle staring and not friendly. I've discussed with my husband several times to only remove face veil, but every time he gets angry, do not understand and says it's strictly prohibited. I'll appreciate your advise on this.
1: Can a husband attend his wife while she is giving birth, or is it haram? Or who else can attend the birth ...because as we have heard that a woman cannot expose her awrah except to the doctor due to necessity?
2: As here in Australia they give you the option that husband can cut the cord, is it permissible?
3: This is sunnah to put child’s name on seventh day ...but if anyone put the name the first day....so is it against sunnah ...or they can put but don’t call the child with this name until the seventh day?
4: What are the teachings of the Sharia for a woman while she is giving birth in a country like Australia? What should she observe in front of the non-Muslim midwives and nurses regarding her pardah?
5: When should we give azan and iqaama ....the first and foremost chance we get or after giving the child the date as its sunnah?
6: In islam should a mother put the name of the new born or the chance should be given to the elders as we do in the Asian countries to give respect to the elders like grandfather ....and what about if the mother doesn’t like that name ... or we should ask pious elders when putting the name? What should be best opinion of your good self?

My question is regarding check-ups done in my pregnancy.
I'm 5 months pregnant living in Germany.
In my pregnancy I have to see the gynaecologist every month for a regular check-up.
These regular check-ups include a ultrasound scan (on the stomach), urine & blood tests and an examination in the vagina to feel the mouth of the uterus and to check for any bacteria which could lead to a premature birth e. g.
The doctor said the vaginal examination is done to prevent premature births. She said it's normally done but if the patient refuses to undergo it she would have to document that. In this case she wouldn't be liable in the case of e. g. a premature birth.
The doctors and nurses are all non-muslim females.
Since most of these examinations involve exposing of my awra, I would like to ask if it is permissible to go ahead with them? Or shall I refuse to undergo any of them?

I know it is not allowed that you wear your hijab in such a way that it looks like a camel's hump outside because it is very attractive. But what about inside for your husband?
1. I would like to know why aren't women allowed to cut their hair on their head? If we wear the hijab when we go out of our house, i don't understand how what my hair looks like can be an issue? I have extremely long hair and to wash and take care of it is an effort.
2. Who has the responsibility of naming a child? I will inshallah be a mother one day and i would like to have the right and responsibility to name my own child. My husband would like his father to name our baby but i do not agree with this and want to know what Islam says about this topic.
3. I am newly married and at times my husband and i fight very badly. It got so bad at one stage that i had to call my father because i could not bear the emotions i felt. We have discussed the problem and before sleeping i asked my husband for forgiveness for any pain or hurt i may have caused him. I asked my forgiveness with pure iklaas. He has not said anything to me, if he still harbours ill feelings for me will the angels curse me at night and will Allah be angry with me or am i forgiven in the eyes of Allah? Also my father in law was there at the time we fought and he was quite upset that we fought. He told us to make up, forgive and move on, but he is now cold and distant towards me and ignores me and doesn't talk to me. I am still doing my duty as a daughter in law to him, my husband is also barely talking to me. Please tell me by islam what should i do to take care of myself in this situation. I would like my marriage to work but do not know what my husband wants, can i do istikara and ask Allah if my marriage is the right choice for me?
