Using contraceptives

Q: A couple have a new baby, the husband is in Madrasah and is not working. Parents are seeing to the costs of the baby. With this in mind, and the fact that more children may distract the husband studies, and with spacing of children in mind, are contraceptives permissible? What types of contraceptives are permissible, is the use of a condom haram?


A: Having more children will make it a more studious environment. The husband may teach his children as well, though it will take a bit more time.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
