3  Only Allah (God)  Naturally through death  Per legislations e.g. life for life  Person doesn’t have the right to take his own life  No one has the right to take other people’s life through family, blood or marriage relationship

4  Is sacred  Human security and well being is preserved  Duty of the government to preserve people’s life, security, belongings, dignity …etc  Under Islamic rules the state is obliged to secure basic cares including health service.  Under Islamic states hospital, medicine and other health services flourished e.g. in Baghdad, Andalucia and other places

5  Irreversible cessation of all signs of life  Debate on brain death…. We believe it is not death, rather pre-runner of death  The stand of Grand Mufti on the brain death is negative so far  Why not?

12  If the community and people have been given the freedom to choose their life style  The health workers should have the right to decline doing things not (norm) to the health services  Health professionals have been trained to prevent death when they can  Not to terminate life “killing”

13  Be obliged to assist  Be obliged to refer  Be obliged to prescribe medications  Remove life support prematurely  Practice un-necessary/ permanent contraception  Among others……
