Transplanting Organs


Is it allowed to use trans-planted or manufactured organs?


According to many scholars of Islam, particularly those from al-Azhar Islamic University of Egypt, there is no harm in the use of such organs, because they are considered one of Allah’s great favors and a significant breakthrough in the industry of medicine. Such transplants solve the hitherto unsolvable problems of those in need of such parts or organs, including artificial hips and transplants of the heart, liver and kidneys. As long as there is benefit from these organs and there is no harm to human beings from their use and nothing forbidden is involved in their manufacture or use, their use is permitted. The proof of this is the verse, “Do you not see that Allah has made what is in the heavens and what is in the earth subservient to you, and made complete to you His favors out¬wardly and inwardly?” [31: 20] This indicates that whatever is on earth that can benefit mankind is accepted. Now that artificial organs and transplanted organs are available, and since there is no Islamic prohibition relating to them, then they are permitted.
