Ask an Alim

know baby gender in womb?

Q:

Assalamu alaikum, I live in UAE where it is legal to know gender of baby in mother’s womb, But I am really confused, as per Islamic law whether it is allowed by our master ALLAH, with consideration of Hadiths/ Sunnahs/ QURAN/ Verses and all, Please let me know as my wife is coming to Dubai withing 3 days for 2 days, I don’t want to do any thing that ALLAH don’t want a MUSLIM to do, Your quick help will really help, Thanks, Atiq Sama
