In a household there is a husband and wife who cannot get offspring, so in such circumstances a husband and wife will certainly take various efforts as a way out. Artificial insemination is one solution that can be taken for married couples who experience infertility. This program is a process of conception (conception) carried out outside the uterus, which is between the sperm and the ovum reunited in a fetri dish which is given the temperature according to the heat of a woman. This is intended to stay alive to the stage of being inserted into the womb of a woman, or more popular with the test-tube baby. In this discussion the author discusses IVF with sperm and ovum from donors whose embryos are transplanted into the womb of the wife. This is done on a husband and wife who are not good in their wife's condition and the husband's sperm is lacking so that fertilization is not possible. In the end the couple receives the ovum and sperm from the donor, after fertilization, the embryo is transplanted into the womb of the wife. Artificial insemination programs with sperm and ovum from donors whose embryos are transplanted into the womb of the wife cause various problems in Islamic law. That is because it is not in accordance with the provisions of the syara law '.
