Hossam E Fadel

Abstract


These issues are going to become increasingly common and more complex as the advances in antenatal diagnosis continue at the present pace. This will be especially true when the human genome becomes established. Many if not all, genetic diseases and even characteristics such as intelligence would possibly be diagnosable in utero or during early infancy.

Muslim scientists, specially in the fields of genetics with its many subdivisions, maternal fetal medicine, and neonatology, should join hands with Muslim scholars and try to develop guidelines for practicing Muslim physicians to follow.
