Pilgrimage with birth control device installed

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)



One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Assalam Alaikum Mr. Burhan. I have a question about a lady who is a muslim and has made some operation in her whomb and doctors put some kind of device to stop the conception, as she does not want to have more children, Also she think that she can not perform Umra or hajj having this device installed. Please help me in this regard, and i pray to Allah that he protects your aqeedah in true form. Assaalam Alaikum

Pilgrimage with birth control device installed

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol,  no person,  no grave, no prophet,  no imam,  no dai,  nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Although you have not asked this question,  it is our duty to let you know that although it is permissible in Islam to practice temporary birth control to space the children,   it is not permissible and considered a major sin in Islam to terminally or continuously practice birth control.   


There is absolutely no harm if a woman,  who has a birth control device medically installed,  to perform the Umrah or Hajj pilgrimages to the Sacred House of Allah.    The insertion of the birth control device has absolutely no bearings whatsoever on the pilgrimage to Allah’s Sacred House.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your Brother in Islam,
