Description from the publisher:
The relationship between medicine and human life emphasizes, for whom among us does not fall sick? Is there anyone who does not face sickness and fatigue after good health and energy?
That is why medicine has its prestigious position and imam ash-shafi'iy explained this in a brief expression saying:
"Knowledge is only one of two things: Knowledge of religion and that of this world. Religious knowledge is fiqh (Islamic Jurisprudence) while worldly knowledge is medicine."
In this book we have made an effort to present to the English reader a translation of the book "Al Ahkaam wal Fataawaa as Shariyyah li Katheerin minal Massailit Tibbiyyah"it is a collection of various rulings and legal verdicts concerning many of the medical issues that we may be uncertain about. From amongst the issues covered are prayer, purification, fasting and other aspects of worship for the sick. other topics discussed are rulings on blood donations, fertility treatments and transplants, from cornea transplants to heart trans plants, this being a topic that has hardly been touched upon or presented to the English reader before, yet it is something that we need to be aware of.
