Resolution No.(140)(4/2010) by the Board of Iftaa`, Research and Islamic Studies: "Ruling on Charging a Fee  for Testing the Usability of Blood"
Date: 7/5/1431 AH, corresponding to 22/4/2010 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 fourth session held on the above given date, the Board reviewed the question concerning the Ministry of Health`s decision to charge fifteen JDs for each blood unit. Having reviewed the letter of the Health Minister, in which he stated that the fee is for covering the expenses of carrying the blood units, the Board realized that it covers the cost of the tests run by the Ministry, and not a price for the blood itself. After prolonged deliberations, the Board decided what follows:
Since the charged sum is in for testing the blood`s usability and not a price for the blood itself, it is permissible. And Allah knows best.
