Marrying a sterile person

Q: 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.

A: 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.
