Results: The study revealed that 74% respondents were illiterate. 92% women had knowledge of family planning methods. But all the respondents told that using family planning methods is against their religion especially permanent family planning methods. Only 32% respondents were using family planning methods. Women between 15-29 had 1-4 children and 30-49 years women had 4-8 children. Conclusions: Literacy rate, awareness and utilization of family planning methods among Muslim women is low.
