Although science is common and not particular to a view of life, its products and its applications, are to be used according to the Ahkam Shari’ah. That which is allowed from Shari’ah can be taken and used, and that which is prohibited is to be left out. This is the way that we should view and deal with all things that are the products of science.

It is based on this that we have dealt with the subjects in this booklet. We have measured it with the shari’I texts, and tried to the best of our ability in this regard. Based on the text, we have made it clear what can be taken and what should be avoided regardless of the benefit and harm. This is because true benefit is that which the Wise Legislator considers beneficial. That which is not considered beneficial by the Legislator should be left out. It is prohibited to take it because taking it is in contradiction with the shari’I rule and whoever does it is sinful.

Based on this, we have looked at the issues of cloning, organ donation, abortion, test-tube babies, life-support systems, and the issue of life and death. We have tried our best,and we ask Allah Almighty that we have reached the right shari’I verdict. We ask Him also to guide all Muslims to adhere to the shari’I ruling, to honour them with the re-establishment of the Khilafah, and restoring the rule with the Book of Allah سبحانه وتعالى and the Sunnah of His Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم.

This is not difficult for Allah سبحانه وتعالى.

رَبَّنَا لَا تُؤَاخِذْنَا إِنْ نَسِينَا أَوْ أَخْطَأْنَا

“Our Lord, do not take us to task if we forget or make a mistake!”

(Al-Baqarah, 2:286)
