Transplantation

Q:

What are the massaels of aga Sistani about transplantation? Is it allowed?

A:
Salaam Alaykum,
 
For your Query I called the office of Sayyid Sistani and they said:
 
“If the Donor is alive and after donating the organ, if he does not suffer than it is permissible. E.g. giving away a kidney or part of liver should be ok. But if organs like eyes are involved than it is not permissible because it is known to harm the donor and make him handicapped. Hence it is not permissible.” 
 
For transplant after death pls refer the link below: http://www.sistani.org/english/qa/01277/
