Thanks for your replies everyoneâ€¦and the welcome
On personal note, I would never consider being a surrogate mother because I would feel to attached to the child that was growing inside of me. With the second question I have mixed feeling about it on one hand I feel that she does have some sort of claim even though it isnâ€™t her child due to the simple fact that she gave birth to the child and carried/took care of the child while she was pregnant. On the other hand if she was paid then I donâ€™t believe she has any right. I wouldnâ€™t use a surrogate mother if I wasnâ€™t able to have any children, because I wouldnâ€™t feel comfortable with another women having my baby and experiencing that connection a mother has with her child when its in her womb.
I didnâ€™t know that surrogate mothers were forbidden under Islamic law, thanks for letting me know that. However I have other question I wanted to ask yall. If a couple tries having a baby the natural way god intend but doesnâ€™t work because of the women/men age, the women body is unable to handle birth, or there is something wrong with the egg or sperm. What are their options other then adoption., that isnâ€™t haram ? Also is it haram to use fertility pills, and in-vitro etc to get pregnant?
I started thinking about this topic when one of my aunts couldnâ€™t have a another child after her first born, which she is very grateful for having.
