Abstract

This paper aligns the Islamic worldview and other Islamic essences to radiation protection. Current guidelines on radiation protection lack in terms of punitive measures as well as the existence of differences in addressing non-compliances to radiation protection practices. The Islamic stance is non-separation of religious matters from one’s daily life, including in the professional environment. In this paper Medical imaging practitioners are introduced to three elements of the Islamic worldview and the other essences that emerge from their discussions. Spirituality, religiosity, the concept of retribution, Maqasid and Qawaid Al-Shariah and guiding principles of Ihsan, Itqan, Fitrah and Istiqomah can help shape the Muslim practitioner to accept radiation protection as more than a professional obligation. The onus upon the Medical imaging practitioner to consolidate his practice should be seen within the context of motivation and deterrence that those essences carry. Personalizing radiation protection thus becomes a personal Muslim professional virtue. Kajian ini menyelaraskan pandangan dunia Islam dan esens Islam yang lain bagi membangunkan perlindungan radiasi. Garis panduan semasa yang berkaitan dengan perlindungan radiasi mempunyai kekurangan dari segi ukuran punitif serta adanya perbezaan dalam menangani ketidakpatuhan kepada perlaksanaan membangunkan perlindungan radiasi. Pendirian Islam mempraktikkan agar tidak memisahkan perkara agama dari kehidupan harian seseorang, termasuk dalam lingkungan profesional. Kajian ini, pengamal perubatan pengimejandiperkenalkan kepada tiga elemen berasaskan pandangan dunia Islam dan esens lain yang didapati hasil daripada perbincangan mereka. Kerohanian, keagamaan, konsep pembalasan, Maqasiddan Qawaid Al-Shariahdan prinsip-prinsip panduan Ihsan, Itqan, Fitrahdan Istiqomahdapat membantu membentuk pengamal Islam untuk menerima perlindungan radiasi melebihi daripada tanggungjawab profesional. Tanggungjawab terhadap pengimejan perubatan bagi menyempurnakan praktiknya harus dilihat dalam konteks motivasi dan pencegahan yang dibawa oleh esens tersebut. Memperibadikan perlindungan radiasi itu menjadi kebajikan bagi seorng profesional Islam.
