‘opinion that blood donating is haram’

Q: YA imam I am of the opinion that blood donating is haram. You seem to allow for it. I would like to know how my thinking and your thinking and become lined up together You are our imam and I would not like to be at odds with you. Can you help me please. Ma salam (email)

A: Our entire bodies belong to Allah. To dispose of any blood (or body part) in the manner we chose would be wrong. to give blood in order to save the life of another human – preferably a pious human as opposed to one that would take your blood and use it against your faith –  remains permissible. In a life and death situation giving blood is allowed in Islam.

Allah Certainly Knows Best.

p.s. sent us proof as to the validity of your opinion that giving blood is entirely forbidden regardless of circumstances.
