Bioethics in Artificial Reproduction in the Muslim World
Bioethics. 1993 Apr; 7(2/3): 207-217.
In Islam infertility and its remedy with the unforbidden is allowed and encouraged. It is essential if it involves preservation of procreation and treatment of infertility in one partner of the married couples. This is applicable to artificial reproduction which is one line of treatment of infertility....The prevention and treatment of infertility are of particular significance in the Muslim World. The social status of the Muslim woman, her dignity and self-esteem are closely related to her procreation potential in the family and in the society as a whole. Childbirth and rearing are regarded as family commitments and not just biological and social functions.
