Islam/wish for children?


Dear Ahmer,

I am a seventeen-year-old man from the Netherlands, with a question about the view of the Islam on the topic: 'can people whom are mentally and/or physically disabled get children?'

In our country there are a lot of people that think that there should be some sort of birth control or that we should desexualize those people. With the argument that it would only bring pain upon the children because of a insufficient upbringing and a lot of bullying in society.

My question is what the Islam thinks of this matter. What can be found about it in the holy writings of the Islam?

I do not intend to let my Jewish blood refrain me from asking questions about the Islam, only by collecting information from all sources one can become wise.

Dear Brother,

Excellent Question...and my apologies for the delay in reply.

In Islam there is no restriction to having children for physically disabled couples if both are willing and fit for this purpose.

But these disabilities have creeped in Europe and other countries where Islam has been rarely practiced. In Islamic countries we rarely see people with disabilities.

Thus I can make out that these disabilities are coming in future generations because they consume what is unlawful - such as liquor / pork / drugs etc


Its my duty to help those in need. You are free to ask as many questions as you like.
