c) i have also read that the pill could be a health hazard, is using a condom for the purpose of spacing between children permissible or would mufti advise the temporary pill if it is permissible?
d) overall is contraception in islam advisable when it is permissible,with regards to shariah?
e) How long should a couple space between children and what is the best method according to the shariah?
