What Muslim Doctors Say about Organ Donation

The issue of organ donation is taboo in Muslim communities with many misconceptions circulating about the process of removing organs from the donor.

Recently we’ve seen more scholars reconsider the permissibility of organ donation in light of better understanding of the clinical process.

These medical professionals confront the following myths:

  1. Your faith won’t be respected.
  2. The ethnicity of donors doesn’t matter.
  3. The operation to remove organs will mutilate your body.
  4. The Government is taking control of people’s organs.

Organ donation is the greatest charity in that it is giving the gift of life.
