Salam 3aleykum,

I would need religious advice. I am taking a contraceptive neuroleptic that I cannot stop. On the other hand, my husband refuses procreation, depriving me of an essential right. I have to go through artificial insemination. Is there a sin if the donor is someone other than my husband and is there a sin in resorting to this insemination without my husband's consent?

Baraka Lahou fikum.

Salam 3aleykum,

Selon mes recherches, la majorité s'accorde à dire que l'insémination artificielle avec un autre donneur que le mari est interdite, mais certains érudits sunnites hanafites l'autorise. Néanmoins, le consentement du mari est nécessaire. Pour ce qui est de mon cas, mon mari refuse la procréation alors qu'il n'est pas stérile et refuse le divorce. Vous m'écrivez que cela est haram. Est-il haram de ne pas tenir informé l'époux ou est-il haram d'avoir recours à une insémination artificielle avec un donneur autre que le mari?

Merci de votre réponse.

  • Welcome to Islam SE. This is an English-only QNA site, so please write your answers in it. Also, I request you to provide your references of the claim that Sunni Hanafi scholars permit it with donors other than the husband. As far as my knowledge goes, there is consensus that a donor other than the husband is always haram without exceptions and comes under the ruling of adultory. Commented Jun 11 at 11:13

Here are some sources:

Opinion of Sunni scholar Dr. Yusuf Al-Qaradawi: Sunni scholar Dr. Yusuf Al-Qaradawi supported allowing IAD with a donor other than the husband in certain circumstances. It states that if the husband is infertile or there is a risk of transmission of serious genetic diseases, then IAD with a foreign donor may be permitted. He argues that this can preserve the family bond and avoid social and psychological problems. This opinion is based on his understanding of Islamic principles and the objectives of Sharia law. (Source: “The Lawful and Prohibited in Islam” by Yusuf Al-Qaradawi)

Opinion of Sunni scholar Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri: Sunni scholar Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri also supported allowing IAD with a donor other than the husband in certain circumstances. He states that if IAD is necessary to preserve the marital bond and avoid family problems, then it may be permitted. It also highlights the importance of medical consultation and ethics in such cases. (Source: “Islamic Family Law” by Tahir-ul-Qadri)

Salam 3aleykum,

Don't worry! I know the flaws of artificial intelligence. Now all you have to do is check whether the fatwa of these scholars has been issued.

I did a search using artificial intelligence. There are several scholars who have admitted artificial insemination with a donor other than the husband:

  • Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi: A contemporary Egyptian Sunni scholar, he published a legal opinion stating that artificial insemination with a donor is permissible if the husband agrees, if the sperm comes from a Muslim man and if it is necessary to remedy medical infertility.

  • Sheikh Abdullah bin Bayyah: A contemporary Mauritanian Sunni scholar, he has also supported the authorization of artificial donor insemination under certain conditions, including if it is necessary to remedy medical infertility and if the husband agrees .

  • Sheikh Muhammad Taqi Usmani: A contemporary Pakistani Sunni scholar, he has issued a legal opinion that artificial donor insemination is permitted if it is necessary to remedy medical infertility and if the husband agrees.

  • Sheikh Salman al-Ouda: A contemporary Saudi Sunni scholar, he has also supported allowing artificial donor insemination in certain cases, including if it is necessary to remedy medical infertility and if the husband gives consent .

  • Sheikh Ali Gomaa: A contemporary Egyptian Sunni scholar, he stated that artificial donor insemination is permissible if it is necessary to remedy medical infertility and if it is done with the consent of the husband, etc.

    Artificial intelligence can hallucinate and should not be relied on as a source for authentic information about Islam. There is a difference when the donor is the husband and when it is a stranger.

  • @UmH StackOverflow has a policy of banning AI-generated content. Does Islam SE have a similar policy? I think we could benefit from banning AIGC quite a bit. Commented Jun 13 at 8:26
  • Salam 3aleykum, I would like to respond to the usage that states that AIGC should be banned. Allah enjoins you to enjoin what is good and forbid what is evil. However, many Muslims prohibit what is haram as well as many halal things. This is how many Muslims leave Islam, their spouse or the family home. These arbitrary prohibitions obstruct the path to Allah. I ask that Allah protect us from these people and provide justice to those who have their rights and freedom violated.
