    How is that haram? Yes you find out the sex but you do not know what he will be when he grows up how healthy interlligence etc. Only Allah knows this. Allah knows best.

    I do not think it is 'haraam' as such to have an ultrasound and of course it is best practise to try and ensure the sonographer is female (most hospitals will have at least one). The sole purpose of an ultrasound is not to see the gender but to check the growth and health of the baby and also the mother. They can also help to signify if there is any problems with the pregnancy ie: placenta previa which can be dangerous for both mother and child.

    However there are some who say that having these scans can cause distress to the baby/ are unnecessary and again there are many women who have refused any scans throughout their pregnancy and have had healthy outcomes.

    The choice is solely up to the couple and whether they wish to have it or not. Also the sonographer will not just blurt out the gender, unless you specifically ask it will not be mentioned during these sessions.
    ‘Good and evil can never be equal. Repel (evil) with that which is better, and see how, then, someone between whom and you was enmity shall become a true friend. Yet none is given such goodness except those who are patient; none is given this but the most fortunate.’

    (al-Fussilat 41: 34-5)
