Egg donation in Islam

Is egg donation allowed in Islam?


Egg donation is not allowed in Islam; this is because of the fact that it dilutes and mixes up blood lineages. In other words, it mixes the egg and sperm of two parties who are not married, and thus introduces a third party into the equation; hence it is not at all in any different from adultery.

If the conception is not possible, except through this method, it is best for the parties to accept the will of Allah;

Women beautify her self for her husband

Please would you answer the following question which is causing rift in our marriage I’m sure there are many other couples in our situation. Can a wife beautify her self for her husband by for instance shaving her legs, arms?

Please clarify this point for me for I cannot bear the constant arguments.

I pray that Allah helps you to bring peace and joy in your marriage. I hope it can be done if both of you have some flexible attitudes towards one another and seek to accommodate each other as best as you can.

Vision or dream after having istikharah prayer?

I was told that if a person makes Istikharah he is bound to experience some vision or dream. I have made Istikharah so many times and yet I never had any vision or dream. Does it mean that something is wrong with my Istikharah?

Istikharah is to seek the right decision by invoking the power and knowledge of Allah. Human beings are weak. Our faculties of knowledge and power are limited. Allah possesses complete knowledge and has power over all things. He knows what is beneficial for us and what is detrimental to us. Therefore, as believers we ought to turn to Him always for direction and inspiration in our life. We should have firm conviction that if we sincerely turn to Allah, He will surely grant us help.

Fasting in Sha'ban

crescent Shaban is one of the meritorious months for which we find some particular instructions in the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh). It is reported in authentic hadiths that Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) used to fast most of the month in Sha’ban. These fasts were not obligatory on him, but Sha’ban is the month immediately preceding the month of Ramadan. Therefore, some preparatory measures are suggested by the Prophet (Pbuh).

The Difference between Taxes & Zakah



Respected scholars, As-salamu `alaykum. As a Canadian Muslim I pay taxes to the government, which takes up a major portion of my income. It is my understanding that a portion of the taxes thus collected by the government goes to the poor and those who work to collect them. This being the case, can I consider myself as being absolved from the duty of paying zakah? Jazakum Allahu khayran.
