Ask an Alim

Organ donation is not permissible in Islam but organ taking is permissible????



Ayt sistani does not permit organ donation after death

however we are permitted to receive organs

if this fatwa was applied universally there would be no donrs & lives would be lost

appears unfair islam permits taking but not giving to society


Al-Salam Alaykum

Thank you for your Question.

Many thing we come across may look unfair to us is just because its against what we encounter before.

In Figh the body of a dead Muslim has the respect of a live human. so we are not allowed to disrespect it with taking body part from it.

Best regards!
