My question is not based on discussions, want i want here is to completely understand the picture of Clinical Trials in Islam. My question is can a Muslim work in Research department or back end IT department for such organisations, would it be a Halal income?

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

    You can improve your question and make it more answerable by expanding or including a link to explain why you think it is prohibited or the opinion of a scholar. I have a feeling it may be prohibited because in the past companies who ran those trials exploited the local populations.

  • @Ansari:I have made it simple. I had no evidence proving that.

    As it is currently worded, this question is a good candidate for closing. Unless you can provide some connection between clinical trials and Islam or some reason to suggest it is not allowed, this is not a good answerable question.

I don't see what is wrong about Clinical Trials to be prohibited in Islam.

In Egypt we have a government-based company called Vacsera. In this company they do drug trials on volunteers before releasing the drugs to public.

    This answer is of type "Useless negative" answers. There is no reference which talks about things which is halal. There is a list of Haram things, every thing else is halal. meta.islam.stackexchange.com/questions/355/…

  • Regardless, you must seek out and cite some evidence, even though it may be difficult to do so. Even if it's general principles on halal/haram that are mentioned in fatawa about this issue.
