Is Egg donation haram or halal in Islam?


Assalam O Alaikum,

I am 33 years old single mom, engaged to a Muslim man and have been asked to be an egg donor. I have read plenty about artificial insemination but what about being a donor?  I would be helping a family who cannot have children and am not yet married. However, my fiance is concerned rightfully that it could be haram.

  1. Salaam Nooshmama,

    As far as I am aware, no: egg donation is not permitted. Please see a similar question we posted some weeks ago:
