The spread of diseases prompted by dangerous viruses harms all walks of life, regardless of
age or gender. The spread of these diseases is more likely to infect children, and it worsens
the situation. The level of immunity of children is lower than that of adults due to their
immature immune system and is still building resistance and immunity to disease attacks. In
an attempt to overcome this problem, global doctors introduced vaccines to strengthen the
human body’s immunity further to cope with various infectious diseases. Nevertheless, there
is a group of anti-vaccines, particularly among Muslims who rejected vaccines because they
are derived from najis (impurities). The allegation garnered attention from certain groups
based on religious beliefs. Hence, this research’s objective was to study the fatwa
determination of vaccine rule derived from najisaccording to Islamic perspective and analyse
scientific views more clearly about vaccines. This study adopted a descriptive qualitative
method of literature review and document analysis. The research outcomes revealed that,
from an Islamic perspective, the use of najis-derived vaccines are required, and it is in line
with Maqasid al- Syariah’s requirements. The use of vaccines is categorised in the
emergency category, while the production of 100% halal vaccines in the future can be
produced and used. The scientific perspective also establishes the need to use this vaccine to
control infectious diseases and maintain universal human health
