Organ donation and transplantation

Question ID: 25520


Thank you, Mufti Sahib for taking the time to answer my questions.

Is organ transplantation allowed in Islam? And is it agreed upon by all scholars?

What is the Shariah implication of including organ donation into a Muslims last will and testament? Is it allowed?

Are Muslims allowed to donate their organs to peoples of other faiths and are Muslims allowed to receive organs from non-Muslims?

Is the harvesting of an organ from a brain-stem dead Muslim for transplantation into another person allowed?

Jazakumullahu khair

Transport of life sustaining due to dire necessity is permissible.
To write in a will not permissible.
To us organs of non-Muslim permissible.
I am of the opinion is it permissible.
