The Research Center for Islamic Legislation and Ethics (CILE) will be holding an informative and engaging seminar called Principles of Bioethics at the Qatar Faculty of Islamic Studies on January 5.
This is the first in a series of events being organised by CILE, a member of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development. The three-day seminar aims to bring together scholars of Islamic jurisprudence and Shariah under one forum so they can discuss and tackle critical issues that are pertinent to today’s world.
Seminar participants will attempt to find solutions to two paramount questions: the first will examine what the Islamic principles of bioethics are, and the second will study whether the four principles of bioethics as defined in the West are in fact universal.
CILE, a member of the Qatar Faculty of Islamic Studies, specialises in Islamic legislation and ethical thought with a main focus on applied principles. The center has a vision of reform that is guided by the fundamental tenets of the Holy Quran and the Sunnah (teachings of Prophet Muhammad). CILE aims to bring about a more just and moral world through a methodological and theoretical framework that can lead to practical applications and tangible contributions.
A number of well-regarded experts in the fields of theology, bioethics and Shariah will partake in the seminar. Participants will include Sheikh Dr Abdallahi Boya, Sheikh Dr Ali Qaradaghi, Sheikh Dr Ahmed Raissouni, Sheikh Dr Abdul Sattar Abu Ghuddah, Dr Annelien Bredenoord, Dr Mohammad Albar, Dr Hassan Pasha, and Dr Tom Beauchamp.
