To what extent does Islam permit the enforceability of undergoing specific genetic testing? This was the main question handled by this paper which was submitted to the symposium held by the Islamic Organization for Medical Sciences (IOMS) in Kuwait during the period 13-15 October 1998 on genetics. The author argues that genetic testing can be enforced by employers who deem this testing necessary and by governments upon pregnant women. However, genetic testing should not be enforced by governments upon those who want to get married or by health insurance companies upon their clients.
