THE UTILISATION OF HUMAN EMBRYONIC STEM CELLS: AN ISLAMIC LAW PERSPECTIVE

Mardhiyyah Munir Ja’afar.

Abstract
Human embryonic stem cells are used for the treatment of conditions such as infertility, spinal
cord injuries, genetic disorders, neurological and haematological diseases and are suggested as means of curbing
graft rejection. Although new findings indicate that the body may reject transplanted human embryonic cells.
The significance of human embryonic stem cells lies in their ability to proliferate and differentiate into different
cells. Despite their prospective benefits, their utilisation raises issues from the perspectives of medicine, ethics,
law and Islam. From the perspective of Islam, the two central issues that must be addressed in the context of
using human embryonic stem cells are consent and abortion. This paper adopts a doctrinal research and
discusses the Islamic law perspective on the utilisation of human embryonic stem cells. It is found out that
willful termination of embryos for the sole purpose of obtaining cells is an act of aggression in Islam.

Key words: Human; Embryonic; Stem Cells; Islamic Law; Perspective
