Question: Finding Baby Gender

ID: 1001

Name: Permissible and Impermissible

Question

Assalamualaikum,

I was wondering if it is allowed in Islam to find out the gender of the baby?

Answer

الجواب وباللہ التوفیق

To find the sex of the baby in the womb of the mother is not a good action in itself. One has to expose herself and show her private part in front of the doctor unnecessarily and this is not such a necessity that one should expose herself for it, hence the Ulama have told it to be impermissible.  

واللہ اعلم بالصواب
