Is donating blood or bone marrow forbidden in Islam? If yes then why and are there any scientific proof?

  • Please clarify the specifics of the donation? From? To? How? And why? As you can see from this fatwa that it can be contextual. If human to human, it is generally allowed irrespective of any other considerations apart from harm or during war (see this fatwa). The same applies to other types of donation (see bone marrow and stem cells) fatwas).

  • Answers are not clear from the link you attached. Somewhere it states that the needy man should be Muslim, the doctor should be Muslim. I am asking whether it is permissible for a Muslim to donate blood in blood donation camp where he/she don't know who is going to get that blood. May 31, 2017 at 10:53
  • These are two different things I'm pretty sure that the matter of blood donation is covered at least once on the site see for instance islam.stackexchange.com/questions/36517/…!

1 Answer 1


Muslims are recommended to donate blood to muslims and to those who don't wage war against Islam and Muslims.

Donation of organs post death /bone marrow same scenario applies.

A muslim is adviced against donating blood in a blood donation camp as the recipient is unknown.
