Abstract

The development of science and technology in 21st century as well as biotechnology in foods production would be a concern towards Muslims due to uncertainty halal (pure and permissible) and haram (impure and unlawful) status. The objectives of this research to study the characteristics of genetic modified (GM) products and its usefulness from the perspective of science while the Maqasid Shari‘ah of GM described from the perspective of Islam. This research was conducted using a descriptive, comparative and content analysis of the fiqh (maqasid al-shari‘ah) and science (biotechnology) to meet Shari‘ah law. Biotechnology is the exploitation of biological process through genetic manipulation or genetic engineering of etiher microorganisms, plants or animals. This organism is recognized as genetic mordified organisms (GMOs) or genetic mordified food (GMF) or transgenic microorganisms, plant and animal. Biotechnology involves in food production is exposing Muslims consumers to several issues such as ingredients and food additives in food, and the raw products which comes from the GMOs. Any food products produced through science and biotechnology, such as GMOs, it must meet the criteria set by al-Qur’an and Sunnah as well as the maqasid (objectives of) shari‘ah. The food products of GMOs have achived halalan tayyiban (lawful and good) status. Besides the GM food is Halal and come from Halal source, in conjunction with that, the foods must be not in the grey area (shubhah), safe, nutritious and clean.
