In Defence of Muslim Doctors

In light of the recent attempted car bombings in London and the attack on Glasgow Airport, the Muslim Health Network categorically denounces these vile and reprehensible actions intended to cause death, destruction and harm to blameless, innocent civilians going about their daily lives. Islam was not revealed to humanity to cause chaos and mischief, its divine origin espouses the protection and sanctity of life, family, society, belief and wealth, as Allah (swt) says in the Holy Qur’an:

"… help one another in acts of righteousness and piety, and do not help one another in sin and transgression. Fear Allah: Surely Allah is severe in retribution” (Surah Al-Ma’idah 5:2)

"Believers! Be upright bearers of witness for Allah, and do not let the enmity of any people move you to deviate from justice. Act justly, that is nearer to God-fearing. And fear Allah. Surely Allah is well aware of what you do” (Surah Al-Ma’idah 5:8)

Reports suggest that the perpetrators of this conspiracy are Muslim health professionals and doctors. The Network is shocked, dismayed yet resolute in its defence of the thousands of Muslim doctors who are a credit to their vocation here in the UK, recognised for their diligent and equitable professionalism. The mandatory precepts of health care and medicine oblige all health practitioners to empathetically serve, support and preserve the lives of all patients and people who face discomfort through ailment.

These disturbed and corrupted individuals should not be allowed to malign the good name of Muslim doctors and physicians, who were also the object of unjust, disproportionate and uncorroborated criticism, relating to patient confidentiality, by the Secretary of State some months ago. It is hoped that the community will support, appreciate and consider them and the true representatives of Islamic medicine, such as Ibn Sina, Ibn Al-Nafis, Al-Razi and Ibn Rushd, the 12th century scholars who contributed and inspired the 17th century medicinal renaissance and scientific advancements.
