Opinion of Fatwa and Sharia

Peace, mercy and blessings of God:

We have discussed the issue of extracorporeal vaccination and returning the fertilized egg to the wife’s womb (IVF), so we say, and God is success:
We have returned to studies conducted by Islamic conferences held for this purpose, legal fatwas issued in Islamic countries, including Saudi Arabia and Jordan, and the opinions of Muslim scholars in many countries. We found that the matter revolves around sanctity and permissibility, it follows the method by which this vaccination is carried out and the conditions that restrict it, so long as the matter is related to a legal couple, medical reasons have prevented, such as blocking the tubules that transport eggs. Or diseases that prevent fertilization and implantation in the womb (we say the man’s sperm and his wife’s egg). The sperm bypasses the dead end in front of it for the fertilization after which pregnancy takes place, God willing. As for other forms in this area. Such as the donation of the egg and sperm from people who are not bound by a legal marriage; There is no doubt that it is forbidden by agreement.
And we find in this scientific conquest hope for the infertile wives and support for a marriage that has not been crowned with childbearing, to undermine its edifice, and to multiply the descendants of the noble Prophet, may God bless him and grant him peace.
This statement is based on the fatwa issued by the Grand Mufti of the Syrian Arab Republic on 2/19/1410 AH, corresponding to 9/20/1989 AD.
