This course will provide a foundational introduction to Islamic Bioethics, and an interdisciplinary, 360 –approach to Islamic Bioethics to allow students to engage the ethical questions from an Islamic perspective.
This course will consist of two main parts: The first part will cover the precursors and sources of Islamic Bioethics: Islamic practice, regulations, and methodologies (fiqh, usul al-fiqh), spirituality (Tazkiyah), Philosophy (alfalsafah Al Islamiyah), and other sources that contributed to the field of Islamic Bioethics and will impact further development of the field as new ethical challenges arise from the transformational, innovations in science, biology, and technology.
The second part will cover the methodology used for deriving bioethical recommendations based on Islamic values. Who is qualified to issue Islamic bioethical stands? How are they derived? What is the role and application of various professional functions (Clinicians, religious scholars, chaplains, researchers, and students) in the deduction? It will give students an idea about global research institutions in the field of Islamic Bioethics and their work.
