Is it permissible for me to marry a sterile woman as I do not want to have offspring even when I am wealthy?
Please, answer me while taking it seriously. I hope that you will always be in the right and wise position.
The Islamic religion encouraged and exhorted marriage and having many children so as to increase the Ummah in number and protect the survival of the human species. (Part No. 19; Page No. 13) Moreover, having righteous offspring indicates continuance of a Muslim's good deeds after death. To this effect, the prophet (peace be upon him) said:
Marry women who are very prolific and loving, for I shall outnumber the people by you on the Day of Resurrection.
May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
