Abstract: 
Objective(s): One of the differences between an ethical proposition and a legal/jurisprudential (fiqhi) one lies in their predicates. Although all three propositions concern free actions of human being, ethical rules are about goodness or badness of those actions, that is, of them being virtuous or vice, while fiqhi rulings deal with their permissiveness or forbidden-ness. Thus it is possible for a given action to be permissive (halal) from a fiqhi stance, but vice from an ethical point of view. For example, it may be halal for all to wear some kind of clothes, while it is ethically bad for some to wear them. This distinction urges us to consider the issue of gamete donation from an ethical perspective.
Conclusion: This Article attempts to consider the issue in accordance to Islamic ethics, presupposing jurisprudential fatwas. First, I will investigate the rational (independent) basis for gamete donation, then compare the results with various fatwas.
