Who Are We

Islamic Medical Association of Malaysia (IMAM) was formed in 1990 and has been active doing humanitarian relief work be it locally or internationally, consolidating Islamic practices and knowledge with current medical practice.

Persatuan Perubatan Islam Malaysia (PPIM) was founded in 1990 with 150 members from amongst Muslim doctors in both government and private practices in Malaysia. The PPIM membership has now increased to well over 2500 members from house officers to senior consultants, professors and deans of medical schools. There are also associate members from the dental professionals, allied health and para-medical staff, nurses and medical students.

The mission statement of PPIM is “Holistic Medicine based on Islam”. We endeavour to fulfill the spirit of our motto “Al-Hidayah, As-Syifa’, Ar-Rahmah” (Guidance, Healing, Mercy), attributes derived from the Holy Quran.

PPIM consolidates the knowledge, experience and expertise of Muslim doctors to serve humanity at large. It is in every sense a dutiful member to the larger society, fully acting, interacting and caring for it. Our members have participated actively in medical and welfare services in war torn Iraq, Bosnia, Chechnya, Maluku and more recently in Afghanistan, Iran and Sudan. In unison with the Federation of Islamic Medical Association (FIMA) and MERCY Malaysia, medical aid and relief has been targeted to various areas of calamity.
