Abstract

Muslim Physicians, Ethicists, Imams and scholars are asked questions by Muslim and non-Muslim patients, physicians and institutions as to what is Islam's position or opinion on certain medical dilemmas affecting the care and outcome of patients' illness and life. Thus, IMANA decided to make a position paper, "The IMANA Perspective", to provide to those who seek our opinion and enable them to pursue further reading on their own.
