E. A. Z. E. Alwi, N. Anas, Z. Yaacob, W. R. W. Taib, M. H. Razali

Abstract


This paper aims at revealing the Human Genome Project (HGP) and human genetic issues
arising from science and Islamic perspectives such as Darwin's evolutionary theory, human
cloning and eugenics. Finally, issues arising from the applications of human genetic
technology need to be addressed to the best possible way through ethics in science as well as
through integration of Islamic teachings so that all achievements of this field do not spoil the
nature and human populations. This in turn will make human life become better and more
conducive from time to time.

Keywords: human genetics; Darwinism; human cloning; human genome project; eugenics.
