IVF sold to others.
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
One of my relative went for a Test Tube Baby, but in first try it was a failure. The couple had given their spurm and eggs to doctory, using which doctor has prepared 3 eggs.
After 1st failure, the doctors gave them some time for second try (around three-four months). They approached to the Doctors on the given time but then Doctor said that your bank has expired mean to say that the material (Combination of Spurm & Egg) which supposed to be used in next two attempts has perished and you will have to give us again (spurm & egg) again. But every one said that, It is not like that the Doctor has sold the material to others.
In such a case what will be the religious liability of the couple. Thanks

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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your Question: ..In such a case what will be the religious liability of the couple.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 164:
Every soul draws the meed of its acts on none but itself: no bearer of burdens can bear the burden of another. Your goal in the end is toward Allah: He will tell you the truth of the things wherein ye disputed.
If the doctor indeed played fraud and sold the material to others, he alone will be held responsible for his theft and crime in the Presence of the Lord Most Majestic on that Inevitable and Tumultuous Day of Judgment..the couple themselves will be absolutely free and blameless for the crime committed by the doctor.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
