The Fiqh of Medicine

The Fiqh of Medicine


The Fiqh of Medicine
This book is based on the author's doctoral thesis, Responses in Islamic Jurisprudence to Developments in Medical Science. It examines some of the most burning issues of the last four decades of the twentieth century. He examines in depth a wide range of legal and moral aspects of responsibility and medical liability within the context of the Been of Islam, with particular reference to: euthanasia, prevention and termination of pregnancy, reproduction and cloning, and transplantation. What are the bases in fiqh that guide medical practitioners in their daily work as they avail themselves of the developments in medical science?
Dr. Ahmed Abdel Aziz has provided the medical profession and fuqaha with what may well prove to be a standard reference.
Ahmed Abdel Aziz Yacoub
For more than a decade the author of this work, Dr. Ahmed Abdel Aziz Yacoub, worked very hard in two different fields. First, as a specialist heart surgeon in the course of which he directly encountered problems associated with the development of medical science. Second, he embarked on the study of law as an undergraduate student at Cairo University (Khartoum Branch), and as a postgraduate student at the University of Khartoum at which he earned Bachelor's and Master's degrees.
He then proceeded to study for a doctoral degree at the University of London, where his research and analysis of vast material on medical science and law earned him a PhD in jurisprudence, in July 2000.
This book derives from that PhD thesis.
