It Is Permissible to Use Permanent Contraception in Islam?

Query: Assalamu aleikom. I would like to ask you if it is permissible to use permanent contraception which is removable after 3 years. For me this is the only safe way of using contraception because I have a blood disease called Leiden mutation and that’s why doctors don’t recommend me and some of them don’t even allow me to use contraception in form of pills.


If pregnancy will/could be harmful to you, then you can use temporary types of contraception. It’s not permissible to prevent pregnancy for a lifetime unless Muslim truthful doctors decide on it in order to protect you from certain harm.

Thus, as long as there’s a necessity, you can use any type of contraception to prevent harm; then stop it so that you can still be pregnant.
