Gender Dysphoria

PUBLISHED Jun 3, 2021

This fatwā was issued by Darul Iftā, Darul Qasim.

Would I be considered a male because of my brain, a female because of my genitals, or intersex because of the incongruence between the two?
Would I be allowed to live as the opposite sex and seek HRT (Hormonal Replacement Therapy) and surgery?
If I am not allowed to transition, would it be permissible for me to have my friends and family use male pronouns for me in private, or for me to use a chest binder?
