    Re: The Donor Breast Milk Conundrum

    Whats wrong with using goats milk? I am not a parent, but I hear that it is a good substitute. I wouldn't trust a woman that would be willing to take pay for breastfeeding my kids either. What if she ends up breastfeeding a potential future spouse for one of them, and when we find out it's too late and they're married with kids?

      Needless to say, the fatwa was retracted...

        Goats milk is no substitute for milk that was specially formulated for the consumption of human children. There is no reason not to trust the woman, you just need to ensure she makes a record of the children she has breastfed on five separate occasions so that they may know that they are siblings and cannot marry one another.

        And when it is said to them, "Do not cause corruption on the earth," they say, "We are but reformers." (11) Unquestionably, it is they who are the corrupters, but they perceive [it] not. (12) - Surat al-Baqarah

          Allah decided to mention it in the Qur'an...that should be sufficient...If a woman does not have a son, she can nurse a baby (2 and under )and he can become a mahram for her and her daughter/s......I am so surprised you have never heard of a milk nurse...all those biblical or Quranic stories...The story of Musa (as) ????

          Maybe it is a cultural Arab/middle east thing....
          There are statues of wet nurses in 16th century Belgium... ........since you are a man then you wil never have to worry about this but as a female I have no issue with nursing a non related starving baby.....but I am not lactating so I guess I won't be doing this any time soon....:grey:

              This is so wrong in so many ways...
              I love you, cherish you and worship you,
              Guide me on your path to your janna,
              Unite me beside you My King and all mighty,

                  I meant that I had never heard of it being forbidden for babies nursed by the same women, to marry.

                  I also figured, people do not do this anymore in more advanced countries, much less have a "milk bank"
