Being a surrogate mother would not allowed in Islam. Having a couple place their sperm and egg into your body would be haram.  Giving birth to another mans child while not married to him (by religious standards) would not entitle him to be the father if you are not his wife.

A woman cannot accept the sperm of a man into her body that is not her husband.

Allah Certainly Knows Best.
