God will definitely reward the person who makes blood donation to save another’s life either by raising his rank or by forgiving him his bad deeds. God Almighty says, {Is there any reward for goodness except goodness?} (Ar-Rahman 55:60)

           
The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “Muslims are brothers to one another. God meets the need of whoever meets the need of a fellow Muslim. A Muslim does not oppress a fellow Muslim nor does he hand him over to an oppressor. Whoever relieves the burden from a fellow Muslim, God will relieve him of one of the burdens of the Day of Judgment. And whoever covers [a fault] for a Muslim, God will cover for him on the Day of Judgment.” (Al-Bukhari)

The Prophet also said, “Whoever relieves the distress of a Muslim in this life, God will relieve him of a distress on the Day of Judgment. Whoever facilitates a Muslim’s difficulty, God will facilitate his difficulties in this world and in the Hereafter. And whoever conceals the faults of a Muslim, God will conceal his faults in this world and in the Hereafter. God will help whoever helps a fellow Muslim.”  (Muslim)

Scholars maintain that in order to make blood donation, the donor must be healthy and legally competent.

Almighty Allah knows best.
