Abstract

One of the issues in Islamic medical jurisprudence (Fiqh) is issuing legal permit for autopsy of the corpse for medical education. According to Islamic fiqh, education in science and technology, including medical sciences and general education, is obligatory. Autopsy and cadaver dissection are usually considered obligatory in medical education. According to Islam, however, a Muslim person who dies should be respected as much as a living person

Abstract Translated

autopsy constitutes disrespect to him/her and is prohibited. Given the growth and expansion in medical science and technology, however, the question arises whether Islamic society can accept this practice and also respect the Muslim corpse. This paper describes the juristic ruling (Fiqh) and some of the ideas that have been expressed in the form of analytical, reasoned response to the above question and how the apparent conflict has been resolved.
