Myths and practices for pregnant women
There are no myths or practices for a pregnant woman to do during a solar or lunar eclipse. Similarly, there is no such thing as a pregnant woman not being allowed to touch sharp objects. Believing in myths falls under superstition and superstitious beliefs in Islam amounts to shirk.
Saaiduna Abdullah Ibn Masud narrates that the Prophet of Allah said: “Tiyarah (superstitious belief in bird omens) is shirk.” (Sunan Abu Dawud p.190 v.2)
