In the name of God I swear …

2. That I have to (maintain) protect human life in all its forms, in all stages, in all conditions, doing my best to save the patients from death, diseases, pain and anxiety.
3. That I will protect their human dignity, their private parts and will keep their secrets.

4. That I will always provide them with means / sources of relief by giving my medical care to all tha people: relatives and others, the good and the bad, the friens and the enemy.

5. That I will always make efforts to seek knowledge for the benefit of humanity and not for its prejudice.

6. That I will respect those who taught me, and will teach the ones who are younger than I, and be brother to colleagues in the medical profession within the boundaries of Al-Birr and Taqwa
(Faithfulness in God's service and piety);

excerpt from E book : The Muslim Doctor: Duties and Responsibility by Dr. Shabib Ibn Ali Al-Hathery, M.B.B.S. Publisher : ISLAMIC MEDICAL ASSOCIATION WAMY - DAMMAM

"Jihâd (holy fighting in Allâh's Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allâh knows but you do not know" Al Baqarah : 216
