Salaam.The doctor advised us to think about vasectomy because another pregnancy could kill me and having the procedure done on me at the time of c-section is too risky in my situation and does not guarantee efectiveness.That is why he advised the vasectomy as is safer for my husband and the success rate is high as well.My husband does not mind but he is not sure about the religious implications.We researched online and some people say that only in case of danger is permissible but he wants more clarificaction.We would appreciate any comment about this issue.Thanks.

It might be that if you leave the matter to Allaah and have children, perhaps you will be blessed with children who are normal and not disabled. Even if you get a disabled child, Allaah may benefit you and your wife with him/her in this world and the Hereafter and Allaah may make him/her benefit the Muslim nation as well.

Therefore, we advise you to turn to Allaah and supplicate to Him to predestine for you what is good as Allaah urged His servants to supplicate Him and He promised them to respond to their supplications. Allaah Says (what means): {And your Lord Says, "Call upon Me; I Will Respond to you."}[Quran 40:60]

Allaah Knows best.

Be careful with this as your husband may blame you for it later!

Unfortunately, I don't have any references to back this up but I believe that you should avoid things that will hurt you and get rid of things that might be dangerous to your health. So in that aspect I would say it's okay, specially if you say you may die from another pregnancy. But the best thing in this situation would be to pray Istikhara and make dua. Allah would surely give you sign :)

Allah knows best.
