We have the technology and practices that can successfully transplant organs from one human to another. This practice saves thousands of lives, but the problem is the lack of resources; organs.
There are line-ups of people waiting for an organ donation, and these people often know that if they do not receive a replacement organ, their life will end. Hence the reason why I'm asking the question:
Is it permissible in Islam to donate ones organs? To be more precise, is it permissible to notify that after death, if your organs are functional, they can be used to save other people's lives?
I'd like to also hear the answer about donating an organ while alive (for example, someone giving up a kidney to save a family member's life).
