Gender Of a child

The Details of the Question
Assalmu Alikum, I wanted to ask , if it is permissible in Islam to find out the gender of a child through ultrasound technology. Thanks & Regards Naveed
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

With the intention of treatment, if a woman undergoes an ultrasound treatment and as a result learns the gender of baby, only with this purpose it is permissible. However, if there is no health problem and the intention is only to find out the gender of baby, it is not permissible. Since finding out the gender of the child is not included in health problem and treatment. In addition, -unless there is a health problem or treatment-, even a woman is not allowed to look at another woman’s private parts. It is not permissible.
