Are Test Tube Baby or IVF (In-Vitro Fertilization) Procedures Legal in Islam?

It is absolutely fine to ask the question whether Test Tube Baby or IVF In-Vitro Fertilization procedures are legal. The Good News is that it has been officially declared legal by competent authorities around the world an in Pakistan.

Jamia Al-Azhar was established under the Fatimid Caliphate in 975 C.E. and is recognized as the oldest Islamic university and the second oldest university in worldwide.

Al-Azhar University or Jamia Al-Azhar’s FATWA Committee is the leading International Authority for Muslims around the world. In 1980, Al Azhar issued FATWA declaring that Test Tube Baby, IVF and similar technologies are permissible as long as they do not involve any form of third-party donation (of sperm, eggs, embryos, or uteruses).

In addition, The Federal Shariah Court of Pakistan in February 2017, declared Test Tube Baby, IVF legal in Pakistan. For Details visit https://tribune.com.pk/story/1334709/federal-shariat-court-declares-test-tube-babies-legal/

“Test tube baby “is defined as a baby resulting from fertilization occurring outside a woman’s body. This is also called In Vitro Fertilization.

Normal pregnancy occurs when a female ovulates releasing a mature egg which is penetrated by the male sperm resulting in formation of an embryo (fertilized egg). This embryo travels through the Fallopian tube and gets implanted in the uterus (womb) of the female.

However, if any of the above mentioned components of natural conception have a problem a couple might not be able to conceive naturally and for such patients Assisted Reproductive techniques (ART) can be used. Test tube baby (IVF/ICSI) is considered as the most effective among such assisted techniques.

In this procedure, the female is first stimulated to produce more follicles and eggs then normally produced. The eggs are then retrieved through a minor operative procedure and placed together with the male sperm in an environmentally controlled chamber in the laboratory. The sperm enters the egg (IVF) or can be injected directly into the egg (ICSI). This results in the formation of embryo outside the female’s body. This embryo is then placed into the female uterus where it gets attached resulting in a positive pregnancy. ACIMC is offering Test-Tube technology in Pakistan since 1998.
