as Muslims the word of Allah has become our criteria for major life choices the Quran is the ultimate guide and it's explicitly clear in many areas however on the issue of organ donation Muslims are only provided with guiding principles excuse me if you needed a life-saving transplant would you accept the organ yes person yeah of course oh yeah of course are you a registered organ donor no I didn't know that Muslims can do that no it's against my religion according to a majority of the Islamic scholars on the subject saving a life is so important that Allah revealed in the Quran that the act of saving one's life is equal to saving an entire human in America more than 120 thousand people are on the waiting list for a life-saving organ many of whom are brothers and sisters in the babe when Muslims are faced with the question of donating a life-saving organ what will we draw upon will we draw upon our fears or anxieties or will we draw upon our trust in our faith in God and then try to make what we think is the best transformative decision for the laws of ourselves our loved ones and our community you are a Muslim will you register to be a donor for more information or to register as a donor go to Gift of Life michigan.org or call eight six six five hundred five eight zero one
