Why the soul is breathed into the fetus after 120 days
Fatwa No: 333379

Question

Is there any wisdom behind the soul being breathed into the embryo after 120 days? What have the scholars said about this?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

We are not aware of anything about this matter.

We advise you and other questioners to ask questions about what benefits them in their religion and their worldly matters or about what leads to action or requires an Islamic ruling.

Allah knows best.
