Three-parent in vitro fertilization (IVF): An approach to the position of muslim jurisprudence and Arab laws-emirati law as a model

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

This article aims to elucidate the position of Muslim Jurisprudence on the matter of Three-Parent in Vitro Fertilization (IVF) while linking it to the position of Arab laws-the Emirati Law-as a model. The present study adopted an inductive analytical method. Three Parent IVF takes place by injecting the nuclear deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) from the ovum of the mother (wife) inserting this nuclear DNA in an ovum given by a female donor, from which the nucleus has been removed. This new ovum is then fertilized by sperm from the father (husband) by traditional methods inside the laboratory. The author concludes that Islamic Law is opposed to this practice, and that Emirati Law does not permit it in such form.
