In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
There is not a single clear verse in
the Quraan which directly says that whether one should give or should
not give, however in the Quraan it clearly says that “Saving a Life is Like Save the Whole World”, (Ref: Al_Quraan_005:032). In a broader sense we must take this verse to save humanity including organs/tissues donations.
There are many patients around the
world who are still on waiting lists for several years. Just go and
visit those families in which there is any patient and their lives are
miserable, especially for those young mothers who are waiting for their
organs/tissues transplants and who have little kids behind. Their
children are severely mentally disturbed.
Thanks to Allah, nowadays various
Ulemas around the world are accepting it and saying that it is
permissible, BUT make sure that it is as freewill not for earning money
by the donors.
Modern sciences is now capable to
save organs/tissues of deceased persons immediately after their death,
so it can spare living persons from donating their organs/tissues and
help save many hardship on humanities.
Since saving a life is like save
whole world, we Muslims must allow our body organs/tissues (e.g. liver,
small bowel, kidney, pancreas, heart, lung, corneas, skin, bone,
cardiovascular tissue the islet cells of the pancreas and connective
tissue etc.) to be donated after our natural/accidental death for the
good cause to help/save humanity, without any discrimination and for
FREE. It will be Great Sadaqah Jariah, INSHAA ALLAH.
I strongly urge
all countries around the world to pass a law that will allow our bodies
organs/tissues (e.g. liver, small bowel, kidney, pancreas, heart, lung,
corneas, skin, bone, cardiovascular tissue the islet cells of the
pancreas and connective tissue etc.) to be donated after our
natural/accidental death for the good cause to help/save humanity,
without any discrimination and for FREE. It will help reduce shortage
of organs/tissues, and hence human sufferings around the world. Those who do not want to donate their organs / tissues, must have to declare it, while rests will be automatic donors.
Prevention is always better than Cure: Below are just few points as a guideline to prevent from diseases:
1> Anxiety / Tensions may kill loved ones.
Organ Transplantation - Organ Donation
By Irshad Mahmood - Director, Global Right Path
2> Junk Foods / Process Foods are one of the main reasons for igniting many diseases.
Obesity is another factor which might be due to consuming Junk Foods /
Process Foods, or over eating. Children need fats but not adults.
Nowadays because of video games etc., children are being more obese
than before, so they also need less fat than those who are doing
moderate exercises regularly.
4> Replace fats that contain saturated fat with olive oil, corn oil or canola oil etc., in very limited amount.
Broil, roast, bake, steam, or grill foods instead of frying them, or
stir-fry with just a little added oil or broth.
6> Trim all visible fats from meat before cooking. Remove the skin from chicken or turkey etc.
Scrub vegetables rather than peel them, as many nutrients are found
close to the skin. Also wash them properly to reduce chemical sprays
8> Substitute low fat yogurt, sour cream, or cottage cheese for sour cream and mayonnaise in dips and dressings.
9> Add herbs to all types of meals. They are also rich in health-protective phytoestrogens.
Herbs such as coriander, ginger, garlic, green chili, Turmeric and
lemongrass are specially complimentary in vegetable-based stir-fry
For meat products you may add Ajwain, Cardamom, Cinnamon, Clove,
Coriander seed, Cumin, Black Cumin, Garlic, Ginger, Black Pepper,
12> Always prefer to cook in low to medium heat. Always avoid over cook or under cook.
13> Avoid chemically coated non-stick pan, since it may cause cancers.
Use less of all fats and oils, especially butter, cream, sour cream,
and cream cheese, which have a lot of saturated fats.
15> Try nonfat salad dressings.
16> Gradually replace whole milk with 2% fat milk and then 1% fat milk for adults.
17> Eat fish at least once a week.
18> Exercise in Moderate to keep yourself fit and healthy as well.
