Ruling on having one’s tubes tied

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum 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:
I am expecting my fourth child.  I have high-risk pregnancies, according to doctors, due to physical problems.   Also, each time I have to deliver by caesarian-section, so this will be my fourth caesarian, Inshallah.   I have been advised by doctors and family members to get my tubes tied during the coming caesarian operation, so as to avoid getting pregnant again. My husband has no objection, as long as is allowed in Islam to take this step due to health risk.I feel the same way. Please, guide me because soon I have to make a decision.

Praise be to Allaah.

Shaykh ‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him) was asked a similar question, and he answered: 

There is nothing wrong with the operation mentioned, if the doctors have stated that getting pregnant would cause her harm, so long as her husband has given permission for that. And Allaah knows best. 

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.
