Intercession of a miscarried fetus

Q. Will a miscarried fetus intercede on its mothers behalf if the mother miscarries at six weeks? I have heard that only a miscarriage after 120 days when the Rooh is blown into the fetus, will the fetus intercede on behalf of its mother. Is this correct?

A. In the case of a miscarriage, there is no restriction of the passing of 120 days for an embryo/fetus interceding on behalf of its mother. The intercession of a miscarried embryo/fetus even at six weeks will still be applicable. (Tahtaawi Ala Maraaqil Falaah 1/598)

Sayyiduna Mu’aadh ibn Jabal Radhiyallaahu Anhu reported that Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said, “By the One in whose hand is my soul, the miscarried fetus will carry his mother by his umbilical cord into Paradise, if she was seeking its reward (from Allah by being patient).” (Ibn Majah 1609)
