Abstract

The western is the well known pioneer of current genetic and modern biotechnology development. These technologies come as a package, promising various benefits along with the controversies on their possible risks and permissible status. Aiming at realizing Islamic worldview as a comprehensive approach to educate the ummah, Islamic bioethics could be promoted as a holistic and universal education platform to begin with. In this paper, the main sources of Islamic law are al-Quran and Sunnah, other Islamic sources like ijma', together with Qawaid Fiqhiyyah and Maqasid al-Shariah will be applied in order to frame the Islamic bioethics guideline. This guideline can be used to educate the various level of society such as students, the public, the scientists, government regulatory officers and other related stakeholders. From this guideline, we will be able to see the comprehensive, practicality and applicability of Islamic law in welcoming the latest discovery of genetic and modern biotechnology. In conclusion, Islamic bioethics is the most suitable platform to educate and guide the society on the acceptability of current genetic and modern biotechnology development.
