Islam considers every ailment as a test of His Ummah by Allah; hence it keeps a very sympathetic attitude towards the patients.
That is why the Islamic jurists have determined that medical remedy is not contrary to the trust in Allah, piety and self- discipline.
Every age has seen new problems. We, too, are witnessing a large number of new problems caused due to the changes in economic setups and social ethos.
The AIDS is one such ailment which has caused multidimensional social problems. We all know that the disease itself is a product of a faulty lifestyle popularised by the changing civilisational values especially the western ones.
Therefore, the guidance of Shariah is required to direct the patient and the society at large about the right course of action. Feeling the exigency of the problem the Islamic Fiqh Academy (India) decided to get guidance from the Islamic scholars, Islamic jurists and medical experts on the subject.
A comprehensive questionnaire on the subject was circulated among them.
In response to the questionnaire more than fifty Islamic scholars and jurists presented their papers. These papers were presented and discussed in the 8th seminar of the Academy.
This booklet is the outcome of the number of articles presented in the seminar. The seminar was held at Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh.
The seminar deliberated the issue of Medical Ethics in the context of the AIDS which is spreading like wild fire in the different parts of the globe, and has gripped some of the highly developed as well as under developed countries.
By the grace of Allah the Academy has produced 17 majallas containing the selected research papers presented in these seminars.
The present work is part of the series of such literature. The original book containing research papers presented in the seminar was edited by Hazrat Qazi Mujahidul Islam Qasmi.
The book has been summarized, and translated by Br. Salar M. Khan.
I hope, and pray to Allah that present endeavour of the Academy to spread the Fiqhi knowledge among the common people may succeed.
May Allah bless the Academy and allow it perpetuity. May Allah cause the endeavours of this Academy a source of His everlasting blessings upon its founder Qazi Mujahidul Islam Qasmi.
