The Ruling Concerning Using Birth Control Pills.

What is the ruling concerning the use of birth control pills by married couples?

It is not allowed for a wife to use birth control pills out of dislike for having children or out of fear of having to support the children. It is permissible to use them to prevent pregnancy due to some illness that may harm the women if she becomes pregnancy due to some illness that may harm the women if she becomes pregnant or if she cannot give birth in the natural fashion but is in need of medical operation to give birth. This and other cases are permissible due to necessity. In those types of cases, she may use birth control pills unless she learns from specialised doctors that those pills may be harmful to her in some other fashion.
