Question

SalaamCan i possible get an egg donated from a na-mahram girl which will be done by an operation with her will and consent.This egg will get fertilise with my sperm in ovaries of halal wife of mine.Your early response in this regard shall be highly appreciable

Answer

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.

Fertilizing an egg of a woman with the sperm of a man other than her husband and then implant it in the womb of his wife is undoubtedly impermissible.

Rather, this is included in the definition of Zina (fornication and/or adultery) – we seek refuge in Allah from this. The Islamic Fiqh Council issued a collective decision (after research and discussion) which stated that this way of fertilization is prohibited.

For more benefit, please refer to Fataawa 90034, 87132, and 84882.

Allah knows best.
