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.

There is no impediment Islamically if the parents want to have children after the age of the rest of the children has advanced.

Family planning and its arrangement are up to the parents according to what yields the best benefit.
