Temporary ligation

Q: I am in a dilema. In a course of 6 years I have had three c sections. I am now pregnant again with my fourth child within a few months of giving birth to my third. Doctors are insisting I get my tubes tied as a c section is a major operation and the risk gets higher every time. Am I allowed to do this due to the reason of this being my fourth c section in such a short span of time?

A: If it is a temporary ligation then it is permissible.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
