Sharia compliant injection?
I went to a doctor the other day, and was in the process of rolling up my sleeves so that he could give me the injection that I needed, but before I could do that, he took the syringe and injected the medicine into my arm through the sleeve and said “Sharia compliant injection” and smiled. I don’t know if he was serious or kidding.
Regardless, I looked at him in shock, as did the friend who was with me. Was he serious, I wondered? Did he think that touching my bare arm was against the Sharia? And did he see nothing wrong with giving me an injection through the sleeve – what about the possibility of infection, dirt etc? I am still in a state of shock and confusion over this.
