Articifical insemination for childless


In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


In the opinion of the majority of the scholars in Islam, there is no harm if when one has a low sperm count or any other medical problem and one uses modern medicine and technology and means of artificial insemination to try to conceive a child, provided the sperm and the egg used to fertilize the ovum are from the same married couple.


But the scholars in Islam have voiced their opinion and declared it impermissible for the couple to try to conceive a child, where the sperm or the egg is from any one other than their very own (surrogate father or mother, etc.).


And Allah Alone Knows Best.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your Brother and sincere well wisher in Islam,
