Imam Training Day at London Muslim Centre
- ‘Definitive’ meaning adopting treatment such as artificial food and water and antibiotics that will always help sustain life – he recommends that it is accepted by those of Muslim faith.
- ‘Presumptive’ meaning adopting treatment that does not always have a desired outcome – he states that because of this, it is not mandatory to consent to this in the Muslim faith.
- ‘Speculative’ meaning if there is no hope of recovery then the treatment should not be adopted and the individuals should trust in the will of God. For example, if the heart stopped naturally, then it is God’s wish and so it would be acceptable not to intervene.
