These values honor the dignity of man as a human being honored by God almighty, and maintain man’s essential rights, including life, freedom, preservation of property, health and sufficiency, throughout man’s life.
The Glorious Qura'n and Holy Shari`ah had contribute actively in regulation these ethical aspects in medicine.
