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.
