Thread: Is IVF (invetrofertility) Allowed In
1. Re: Ivf Allowed In Islam?
Allah is the Creator of the universe. He created the heavens and the earth.
Everything is subject to His will. As believers, we should appreciate and
accept that granting of children is the sole prerogative of Allah. Allah in His
infinite knowledge and wisdom will bless a person with children at a time
that is appropriate to that persons specific situation. At times, Allah may not
grant a couple children, whilst this is also a blessing unto them. Sometimes,
Allah tests man through this. Nabi Zakariyyah (alayhimus salaam)received
the bounty of a child in his old age.
Amongst the negative characteristics of artificial insemination are:
1. Unnatural conception;
2. A woman is required to expose her private parts;
However, inability to conceive is also essentially a medical problem. Islam
has encouraged us to adopt medical treatment as a means. Therefore, if a
genuine medical condition exists, e.g. infertility, etc. then under the guidance
of an upright competent medical doctor, artificial insemination may be
adopted as a medical treatment with the following provision:
1. A surrogate mother is not used (that any other women besides the wife)
cells are used;
2. Only the sperm of the husband is used.

My wife is about to have a hysterectomy, meaning all of her female
reproductive organs will be removed and she will not be able to conceive
children at all. We have no previous children, and I was wondering if in this
case it is allowable for us to have an IVF, or what we can do Islamically to
have children of our own.
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh
Hysterectomy is not permissible in the Shariah as it is an irreversible
method on contraception. It will only be permissible if the womans health
will be endangered without hysterectomy. (Fatawa Mahmoodiya, Pg:114,
Vol: 5)
If a couple are experiencing difficulty in conceiving a child the natural way, it
will be permissible to adopt the procedure of In Vitro Fertilisation with the
condition that the sperm belongs solely to the husband and the egg belongs
to the wife. It will not be permissible to use a third persons sperm under any
circumstance. (Jaamiul Fatawa, Pg: 469, Vol: 1)
