Are designer babies/genetically engineered children haram?

its not like they created a living organism, they simply shape the way it grows. similar to GMOs or fruit moulds

In China, a man genetically edited babies to make them resistant to HIV

This sounds great but my question is, is this halal? Because technically we are changing Allahs creation, no?

Trust me, they are nowhere near selecting for high IQ or good looks.

All they can do now is remove rare genetic disorders or insert cures to rare disorders.

They cannot ''upgrade'' healthy people.
