This paper was submitted to the symposium held by the Islamic Organization for Medical Sciences (IOMS) in Kuwait during the period 6-8 December 1993 on AIDS and its social problems. The main focus of this paper is the impact of being infected with AIDS upon the marital relationship from an Islamic perspective. The author argues that AIDS is analogous to the communicable diseases whose juristic rulings were discussed by early Muslim religious scholars. Thus, if one member of a married couple becomes infected with AIDS, the non-infected partner would be entitled to ask for the termination of marriage. The paper also discusses the relation of the woman infected with AIDS to her fetus during pregnancy and of the breast-feeding mother to her baby.
