The eighth question of Fatwa no. 18579
Q 8: It is well-known that treatment in the hospitals of the Ministry of Health is free for certain segments of society. Assuming that there are poor people who cannot afford the costs of treatment in private hospitals, am I sinful if I examine patients who do not deserve the free treatment that is given in public hospitals?
A: You have to abide by the regulations and the policies set by the government for hospitals to achieve benefit and ward off evil.
