This is new research that could take a stem cell and make it into a sperm or an egg. So, it's plausible that we could take the stem cell from one man and make that into an egg and fertilize the egg with the sperm from the other man. This can then be placed inside of a woman and she can give birth to the baby that is not genetically hers. The baby would be genetically derived from the two men. This is not a possibility yet, but could be in just a few years. Would this be haram?

Me and my husband are both Muslims and married. We live a celibate life together.


The act of growing the baby in another woman for straight couples is currently possible but is haram because that woman has labored for a child and it would not be fair to take it from her. Relatively I assume it would be the same for two men.
