Is it true that in our religion " Islam" that our children should not be vaccinzed aganist diseases?
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
is it true that in our religion " Islam" that our children should not be vaccinzed aganist diseases?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Children and Vaccination
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
The statement that Islam does not allow our children to be vaccinated against diseases is absolutely false and untrue!
The Messenger of Allah (saws) himself took medicine and cures against diseases, available during his times; and nowhere has Allah and His Messenger (saws) prohibited the believers from seeking the cures for any and all diseases.
It is not only advisable and prudent to take preventive cures available for the diseases; but in this day and age it is absolutely imperative that one does so; and the teachings and guidance of Islam have absolutely allowed the believers to seek and apply any and all cures available at ones disposal.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
