Shortened Question:

Is it permissible to use IUD contraception?


I am using the IUD copper coil, but recently have been told that it is Haraam to use it. Also that if I die then my Janaza cannot be performed. Please can you give me information regarding this. The reason I am using the contraception is that I have 3 children born by C-section, so I do not want another C-section very soon.


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

It is permissible to use the IUD copper coil contraceptive[1].


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

وفي شرح الوقاية : وضع الكرسف مستحب للبكر في الحيض وللثيب في كل حال وموضعه موضع البكارة ويكره في الفرج الداخل
