Gynecologist (Male)

Q:

Assalamoualaikoum, My husband is a gynaecologist and we would like to know if it is permissible in Islam for a man to be a gynaecologist please. He is currently practising in the UK, where there is no shortage of female specialists.

A:

Waalykum salam.

According to Sayyid Sistani:
He is not permitted to work as a gynecologist especially when there is no scarcity of the profession.

Unless he has to save someones life.

Best wishes,
Naajiya.S.Jaffery
