Organ Donation from a Deceased person


Salam Alikum Mawlana and thank you for your time and endless efforts…

I would like to know if a deceased person can donate organs after his passing away, as in the UK we have DONOR cards is this acceptable in shariah. I have seen a question on Organ donation but I wanted it to be more clear about deceased donation.

Thank you… Almighty Reward you all for your hard work..


Wa `alaykum salam,

For organ donation of the dead, Shari`ah-wise, it is not allowed to take the organ from a dead person. But today there are too many fatwa from al-Azhar and different websites of Ahl as-Sunnah wa ‘l-Jama`ah scholars. Some scholars say “yes” and some say “no”, so it is up to them.
