Resolutions of Iftaa' Board

Date Added : 02-11-2015


Resolution No.(151), (16/2010) by the Board of Iftaa`, Research and Islamic Studies:

"Ruling on Donating Kidneys"

Date: 2/9/1431 AH, corresponding to 12/8/2010 AD.



All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of The Worlds; and may His blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Mohammad and upon all his family and companions.

During its ninth session held on the above given date, the Board reviewed the following question:

I`m inflicted with kidney failure, so I undergo renal dialysis thrice a week. I have tried so hard to find a cure to this illness but failed. In fact, I have only one son and he offered to donate his kidney, but I refused in fear for his life. However, a doer of charitable actions heard about my problem and expressed his willingness to save my life by donating me his own kidney?


After prolonged deliberations, the Board decided what follows:

The Board reconfirms its earlier resolution No.(10/2008), 29/11/1429 AH, corresponding to 21/11/2008 AD, which stipulates that kidney donation in this case is impermissible because it violates the provisions of Islamic Sharia. This is in addition to the fact that there are other options, such as renal dialysis and a donor from the patient`s kin. Moreover, the Jordanian Law bans donating kidneys to non-relatives. And Allah Knows Best.
