Medical Contract: Shariah Rulings on Medical Consent

Translated by
Sayyed Mohamed Muhsin


In this book, Medical Contract: Sharīʿah Rulings on Medical Consent, the author Qais bin Mohammed Al Mubarak – a professor of Islamic jurisprudence in King Faisal University and member of Council of Senior Scholars in Saudi Arabia – meticulously formulates a discourse on medical contract in the light of Sharīʿahand delves into the definition, types and sources of Islamic legal rulings on medical consent. This work examines the nature of the contract in doctor-patient relationship and demonstrates the various ways through which valid consent is granted in health-care. In the deliberations on the legal capacities of the consent-giver, the author explores the elemental aspects and obstacles within active legal capacity followed by analysis of the guardianship of incompetent patients. In the last part of the book, he effectively analyses the obligations of the consent-taker and the causes of termination of medical contract.
