Answer:

Al-hamdu lillaah.

Contraception is permitted under the following conditions:

  1. Mutual agreement of both husband and wife.
  2. It does not cause harm.
  3. It is not be practiced on a permanent basis, but rather for a temporary period (such as two years until the breastfeeding of the current baby is completed, for example).
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
