I have been born with a prominent jaw line which means my teeth stick out and I have a very unappealing side profile. I have been called things like "Mr. Rodent" and "rat-face". This has caused me a huge amount of emotional pain and loss of self-esteem. My orthodontist recommended dental surgery to realign my top jaw with my bottom jaw. I am very keen to do this as I would like to correct this disfigurement. Please advise me on whether this operation is lawful in Islam. Also, ...

I have a question regarding cosmetic surgery. When I was younger, I had a medical problem, which resulted in a hormone imbalance. As a result of this, my breasts did not develop.

Is it permissible for me to have cosmetic surgery to fix the shape and size of breasts to look like normal breasts? I must also note that I do not ...

Someone told me that that is not haraam because they are not drugs and so long as they do no harm there is nothing wrong with taking them. In fact the doctor told me: There is nothing wrong with taking them because they do not harm the body, so long as a single dose is not more than 20 mg. What is the Islamic ruling on that?

The vaccinations or immunisations that are given to children are a questionable matter. The prevalent theory says that once you give the child a small amount of the virus that causes a certain disease - which is known as immunisation or vaccination - he then develops immunity against that disease of the rest of his life. But I became concerned about this issue after I read that most of the immunisations that are given to children are derived from rotten blood of horses, pus from sick cows, pigs' ...

I would like to donate bone marrow to patients who are suffering from leukaemia (blood cancer) but I want to make sure that it is halal.

Is menthol permissible in Islam? As my chemistry professor told me that menthol is an alcohol because it belongs to the hydroxyl group -OH. I have difficulty in breathing at night, and I use nose drops but I have not been able to use them for a number of nights, so my doctor recommended other medicines that contain menthol. I hope that you can help me as the matter is very important. May Allah bless you.
