Haqiqat al-mawt wa al-hayah fi al-Qur'an wa al-ahkam al-Shar'iyah
In: Madhkur, Khalid; Sayf,
This paper was read during the symposium held by the Islamic Organization for Medical Sciences (IOMS) in Kuwait during the period 15-17 January 1985 on the beginning and the end of human life. The paper starts with detailed elaborations on the linguistic and technical definitions of the two concepts ?death? and ?soul? as recorded in the Arabic lexicons, the Qur?anic verses and the Prophetic traditions. The author also refers to the body-soul relation as understood by the early Muslims theologians. The main conclusion of the paper is that accepting brain death goes contrary to the consensus of the early Muslim religious scholars about the reliable signs of death.
