Couple not having children due to fear of fitnah in the place they are living

Q: Can a couple avoid having children if they know that they will not be able to give the child a proper deeni upbringing and also because of the fitnah around in that place?

A: If there is fitnah then like the fitnah can affect the children it can affect the couple as well. Rather than avoiding children they should move to an area that is Islamic friendly with the least fitnah.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
