Amphibians are known to possess a moist integumentary system which plays a vital role in its cutaneous respiration. In addition to this, its skin also possesses granular and mucus glands which secrete several potent bioactive compounds that enable them to protect themselves against predators and microbial infection. Recent development in technology have made it possible to extract certain compounds from amphibians which harboured a specific bioactivity characteristics such as antiviral,

Amphibian biology has provided us with an insight that could help mankind in treating various illness. Their immune defences are highly evolved by both innate and adaptive immune system. Therefore, this paper aims to discuss and elaborate on how Islam jurisdiction affects the rulings of frog components use for medical and research purposes. Abstrak Amfibia dikenali mempunyai sistem integumen yang lembap yang memainkan peranan penting dalam pernafasan kulit. Di samping itu, kulitnya juga mempunyai kelenjar bergranul dan berlendir yang merembeskan beberapa sebatian bioaktif poten yang melindungi diri daripada pemangsa dan jangkitan mikrob. Perkembangan terkini dalam teknologi telah memungkinkan untuk mengekstrakkan sebatian tertentu dari amfibia yang mengandungi ciri-ciri bioaktiviti tertentu seperti antiviral, antibakteria, antifungal, antiprotozoal, antidiabetic, antineoplastic, analgesik dan sifat mencetus tidur. Biologi amfibia telah memberikan idea yang dapat membantu manusia dalam merawat pelbagai penyakit. Pertahanan imun berevolusi secara semula jadi dan adaptif oleh sistem keimunan. Oleh itu, kajian ini bertujuan untuk membincangkan dan menghuraikan bagaimana bidang kuasa Islam mempengaruhi keputusan komponen katak yang digunakan untuk tujuan perubatan dan penyelidikan.
