Islam Views on Medical Issues

“In the traditional Islamic world, the hierarchy of the arts was not based on whether they were
"fine" or "industrial" or "minor". It was based upon the effect
of art on the soul of the human being.”

Islam’s View on Organ Transplants and Donations
“Organ donation is permitted in Islam if it is done within the permissible limits prescribed by the Shari`ah.
The legal consequence of any sale in terms of contracting or not, validity or not, permissibility or not is contingent upon the fulfillment of the conditions stipulated by law in sale, and deduced by Muslim jurists from Sharia texts and rules.
“Allah, the Mighty, the Majestic said: I will be an opponent to three persons on the Day of Judgement: One who makes a covenant in My Name, but he proves treacherous, One who sells a free person (as a slave) and eats the price, and one who employs a labourer and gets the full work done by him but does not pay him his wages”
As already mentioned, jursits unanimously agree on the invalidity sale of any part of man except woman’s milk, either due to honouring man with his entire organs, or for the inconceivability of deriving benefit from human organs after separation.
If the matter had been confined to such considerations upon which jurists based the impermissibility of sale of human organs, it would have been possible to end the discussion on this question
Organ Transplant
The opinion among most Fuqaha (jurists) is that seeking medical treatment is either recommended (Mandub) or obligatory. There are many Ahadith which encourage the Muslims to seek medical treatment.
Infertility in the Qur’an
The Qur’an is true guidance for all mankind, complete and not lacking anything. It touches on every aspect of life, so it should come as no suprise that infertility is on the vast array of subjects.
Polygyny: An Option For Infertile Couples
There comes a time in the process of curing infertility when a couple decides that they have availed all options and they must move on with their lives. Many husbands see divorce and then remarriage as the only alternative to have children.
Medical Gender Selection
Medical gender selection is a process in which the sperm is washed and the X sperm is separated from the Y sperm. The sperm is than implanted in the woman or eggs are fertilized outside of the womb and than implanted into the woman.
Most women who have infertility issues also suffer from abnormal menstrual flows. While Muslim women generally know the does and don’ts of a normal menstrual flow, many are at a loss of what to do during an abnormal menstrual cycle.
Adoption is one of the most common options for infertile couples. Many are too quick to say that adotion is haram, when in fact the reality is that Allah on many occasions calls for Muslims to take care of orphans
Pregnancy in the Qur’an
My intent of this article is to give a brief outline of pregnancy, and related issues, in the Quran rather than a detailed explanation of embryology in the Qur’an.
Does Islam Allow “Surrogate Motherhood”?
As far as Islamic Shari`ah is concerned, surrogate motherhood or what is called “hiring a womb” is not allowed since it involves introducing the sperm of a male into the uterus of a woman to whom he is not married and, thus, it clearly falls under the specific category of transgressing the bounds of Allah.
Breast-Feeding in Islam
It is only recently that modern scientific research has brought to light the paramount importance of breastfeeding to the health of the child. Islam has known and emphasized this fact for some 1400 years.
