Written by Dr. Shahid Athar   

Q. My grandfather never took care of his diabetes. Now he has developed gangrene in his foot. Doctors recommend amputation to save the rest of his leg. He refuses. What should we do?

A. You should talk to him again and again that God entrusted him with care of his body and if he does not do what Doctors recommend, his condition may worsen and he will be questioned about it on the day of judgement in addition to having additional suffering in this life.
