Medically Producing Male Children. by Taamas111 (m): 3:47pm on January 11

Is it permitted in Islam to use the new
medical methods to produce male children
as (preconception gender diagnosis)?

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, is His Slave and
The procedure of selecting the sex of a baby
is undertaken by separating the
spermatozoon before fertilizing the ovum.
Actually, the one who cannot give birth
normally adopts the procedure of artificial
insemination. Regarding the dangers that are
in this act and the prohibitions that are
committed in this procedure such as
exposing the very private parts of a woman,
the possibility of mixing the spermatozoon
and the like, we believe that artificial
insemination and selecting the sex of a baby
is not permitted for anyone who is able to
give birth normally.
The artificial insemination could be
permissible only if the conditions that are
mentioned in the resolution of the Fiqh
Council of the Muslim World League in its
seventh session are met; they are as follows:
1. A Muslim woman should not reveal her
body to other than her husband at all except
for some legal purpose that is acceptable in

2. The need for a woman to uncover her
body to take the medical treatment for any
disease that is harmful for her or cure any
abnormality in her body must meet the legal
reasons that allow her to uncover her body
to other than her husband. Then the
uncovering of the body should be restricted
only to the extent of necessity.

3. When uncovering the body of a woman to
other than her husband becomes lawful for
any legal purpose, she should take the
treatment from a Muslim lady doctor if it is
possible; otherwise, a non-Muslim lady
doctor; if it is not possible then from a
reliable Muslim male doctor; if that is not
possible then a non-Muslim male doctor. The
above-mentioned sequence should be
considered at the time of treatment.
However, it is not permissible for a male
doctor to stay in seclusion with a female
patient. The presence of her husband or any
other woman is compulsory.

Allah Knows best.
