Abstract: The present-day life is seeing evolution in innovation across various fields; in transportation, communication, medicine and food processing, all progressing parallel with the advancement of technology. As a result, a myriad number of new inventions and products are produced. A large number of the innovations have changed the natural order from its original form created by Allah SWT. However, cited from the Quran, Allah SWT has prohibited the alteration of its creations. The Prophet Muhammad SAW himself shares the same prohibitions as it falls under the category of changing creations of Allah SWT. According to mufasirin, the alteration of creation is inclusive of physical and spiritual. Nevertheless, modification that brings benefits is permissible. Muhaddithin and fuqaqa’ divide alteration into two, temporary and permanent alterations. Temporary alteration is allowable based on a sound reason for example the coloring of fingers by a wife to dress for her husband. Nonetheless, should the cause be not unsound such as the tint is used to dress before a non-mahram, then it is not permissible. A permanent alteration with an unsound motive for example the tattooing of skin is haram. Whereas the permanent alteration of a sound reason as in the case of an organ transplant for medication is permissible. In food processing, scientists have discovered a way to culture organic meat that is both time saving and cost effective. Cultured meat is cultured using the ex vivo method, either in the laboratory or reactor. It has changed the conventional method altogether. In terms of its ruling in general, it can be considered with a sound objective. However, the ruling is still subject to its implications. If the implications are positive, then the ruling is permitted. Should the opposite occur, the ruling becomes haram as it is virulent to humankind.
