While science is making life-saving advances, at times these innovations may clash with the tenets of religion.

In a breakthrough surgery, a 57-year-old man from Maryland, USA successfully received a genetically-modified pig heart. While the achievement is celebrated, Muslims are concerned that this may be in contravention of Islam’s laws.

The preservation of life is one of the main teachings of Islam; does it supersede the restrictions placed on use of pig products?

Guest: Professor Abul Fadl Mohsin Ebrahim – scholar of Islamic bioethics and an emeritus professor of Islamic Studies in the School of Religion and Theology at the University of KwaZulu-Natal
