Is contraception allowed ?

Praise be to Allah.

Al-hamdu lillaah.

Contraception is permitted under the following conditions:

  1. Mutual agreement of both husband and wife.
  2. It does not cause harm.
  3. It is not be practiced on a permanent basis, but rather for a temporary period (such as two years until the breastfeeding of the current baby is completed, for example).
