Praise be to Allaah.
If what happened to you of
having an ovary removed did not affect your ability to have children because
the other ovary is working well, then you do not have to tell your suitor
about that, because the definition of the kind of fault which must be
disclosed is that which affects the marriage by causing an inability to
provide physical pleasure or service or to bear children. But it is better
to tell your suitor about it so as to prevent any problems later on if the
husband were to regard not informing him about that as a kind of deception.
Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may
Allaah have mercy on him) said: The correct view is that what is regarded as
a fault is anything which causes the aims of marriage not to be fulfilled.
Undoubtedly the aims of marriage are physical pleasure, service and bearing
children. These are the most important aims. If there is anything that
prevents fulfilment of these aims, then it is a fault. Based on this, if the
wife discovered that the husband is infertile or he discovers that she is
infertile, this is a fault. If he finds out that she is blind, this is a
fault, because this undermines two aims of marriage, namely physical
pleasure and service; if he finds out that she is deaf, this is a fault;
similarly, if he finds out that she is mute, this is a fault. The correct
view is anything that undermines the aims of marriage is regarded as a fault
where the option (of annulling the marriage) is given to either the husband
or the wife. End quote from al-Sharh al-Mumti’ (12/220).
