Using an Anonymous Egg Donor for Pregnancy: Our Journey

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: My husband and I are trying to fall pregnant. Can we use an anonymous egg donor?


A: This is not permissible. This is haraam in Islam. The Hadith has severely condemned and prohibited this.

Recite the following aayat after Salaah and make dua to Allah Ta’ala to bless you both with pious and healthy offspring.

رَبِّ هَبْ لِي مِن لَّدُنْكَ ذُرِّيَّةً طَيِّبَةً

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

عن رويفع بن ثابت الأنصاري قال كنت مع النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم حين افتتح حنينا، فقام فينا خطيبا فقال لا يحل لامرئ، يؤمن بالله واليوم الآخر أن يسقي ماءه زرع غيره ولا أن يبتاع مغنما حتى يقسم ولا أن يلبس ثوبا من فيء المسلمين حتى إذا أخلقه رده فيه، ولا يركب دابة من فيء المسلمين حتى إذا أعجفها ردها فيه (مسند أحمد رقم 16990)
