La fin de vie, point de vue musulman

Abstract : The philosophy of Islam considers life to be sacred. Only God can take away this gift that He gave. Consequently, euthanasia and assisted suicide are both prohibited. In a similar manner, when a sickness is curable-not beyond therapeutic means-, a doctor is obligated to heal his patients and support their healing process, without unreasonable obstinacy. Thereupon, when hospital care is no longer required, spending one's last moment with one's family is preferable. A prompt burial, with the assistance of a mosque or a religious authority, is strongly recommended.
