Dr M. Kabir Banu Al Zubair, geneticist (Univ. of Cambridge) talks about his life, work and religion. He discusses the relationship between Islam and genetic science, especially with regard to cloning, explaining that Islam has not yet formed an opinion about this; the point is, how would cloning be used?
