Permissibility of Sonography

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askmufti.co.za

Q: Is it permissible to know the gender of a baby before birth via sonography?

A: It will be permissible but what is the purpose of it? Many a time the scan seems to show a gender but at birth it is the opposite.

It is permissible because the baby has already been formed, but it is a futile exercise.
