Surrogacy

Q: My question is that if a Muslim man has two wifes and one of them has womb cancer which means that she can’t carry a pregnancy. Could the other wife carry the pregnancy for example like a surrogate would if she wishes to?

Bismillaah

A: It is not permissible.

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