Storing the mother's milk to be fed...

Egypt's Dar Al-Ifta

Storing the mother's milk to be fed later to her child


What is the opinion of Islam on benefiting from the milk of mothers whose medical conditions prevent them from breastfeeding their babies? These mothers store their milk in milk banks to give later to their babies. Should their milk be given only to their biological babies?


There is no legal objection to this as it is tantamount to storing the milk in a proper manner to nourish her child when needed.
