Abstract: This paper focuses on infertility within an Islamic context and proves that it is rather a cultural than a physiological issue. It mostly refers to Marcia C. Inhorn and her research in Egypt and Lebanon that she has conducted over the past 20 years. Female infertility (mushahara or kabsa) is here analyzed as a rich ritual comlex with features typical of rites of passage. Finally, the social impact of assisted reproductive technologies and psychological stigmatization of infertile Muslim men are discussed.
