This paper 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 paper provides a detailed review of the classical juristic discussions on the (non-)acceptance of qiyafah (science of physiognomancy) as a method for establishing paternity. The paper also investigates the possibility of making analogy between qiyafah and DNA fingerprinting. The author concludes that using DNA fingerprinting for this purpose should be very limited.
