Dear FIMA members
Assalamu Alaykum
Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim
Praise be to Allah the Most Merciful, the Most Beneficent. May Allah (جل جلاله (shower His blessings and
peace on the Prophet and Messenger Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم .(
I begin by thanking the FIMA Executive Committee for honoring me with the responsibility of being
the Editor-in-Chief again for this year’s yearbook. I thank Allah (جل جلاله (for giving me this opportunity
and enabling me to accomplish this task. I pray to Allah (جل جلاله (to accept my effort in His way and to
reward all who participated in this effort.
This year we are publishing the second part of the Encyclopedia of Islamic Medical Ethics. This
part is devoted to Genomics. It covers a very important and expansive topic that touches almost all
aspects of biology and medicine. It is not possible to address all aspects of genetics , but attempts
to mainstream the general principles of genetics, especially in relation to its impact on human
health and disease, while examining the ethical, legal, and particularly the Islamic points of view on
these issues. We tried to make the chosen topics appealing to scientists, researchers, and clinicians,
by including basic science, as well as clinical applications, both diagnostic and therapeutic.
We understand that this field is new and progressing so rapidly that whatever information we
provide here may not be the state of art in the forthcoming 5-10 years. We selected contributions
from prominent experts on the various topics we selected and hope that the information provided
will be both interesting and informative for our distinguished readers.
