Abstract

This meticulous inquiry undertakes a critical examination of the intricate confluence betwixt surrogacy and Islamic teachings, plumbing the depths of the ethical and legal dimensions that mold Islamic perspectives on this modern-day reproductive praxis. Drawing upon the wellspring of Islamic jurisprudence, the tenets of bioethics, and the tapestry woven by social and cultural contexts, this erudite study strives to cast illumination upon the kaleidoscope of viewpoints enshrined within the Islamic tradition regarding the permissibility, ramifications, and regulations enveloping the realm of surrogate motherhood. Through a multidimensional analysis, this scholarly article embarks upon an exploration of the underlying principles and values that are innately interwoven within Islamic teachings, thus exerting influence upon the perception of surrogacy. It undertakes an inquest into concepts such as kinship, motherhood, fatherhood, marriage, and the sanctity of life, scrutinizing their intricate connections to surrogacy arrangements. Furthermore, it accords due consideration to the socio-cultural factors that conspire to shape Islamic perspectives on surrogacy, duly recognizing the vast realm of interpretations that abound.
