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 author examines the possibility of enforcing genetic testing upon the couples who want to get married. He argues that undergoing this test, from an Islamic ethical perspective, can in principle be enforced.
