Sperm donation is fornication by proxy – Islamic scholarChris Adelugba
An Islamic scholar has described as sacrilege the decision by some young men to donate their sperm to fertility hospitals.
Citing Quran Chapter 12 to buttress his point, he explained that, “if a third party, other than the spouses, is introduced into the process of fertilisation, such sperm coming from another man, then fertilisation in such cases is haraam, because it is counted as zinaa (adultery).”
Sheik Nuamah stressed that when a woman uses the sperm of a man, it is the same as sexual intercourse which is halaa.
Sheik Nuamah added that Islam only permits a married man to donate his sperm to fertilise his wife’s egg if the woman has issues with her reproductive system.
