Can one donate her egg?

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


The body is a trust or amaanah which Allah has bestowed upon each human being. Therefore, it would not be permissible for a believer, who sincerely believes in Allah and the Last Day, to sell any part of his/her body.


Besides, it does not behove a believing woman to sell her eggs so that they may be medically fertilized by the sperms of a man who is not her husband. This would be absolutely impermissible for the believers.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your Brother in Islam,
