Question & Answer

Is it permitted in Islam, if we donate blood to a non-Muslim friend?


Answer:



بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

Allah Says in the Quran: (part)

...if anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder, or (and) to spread mischief in the land - it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind.....QURAN[5:32]

In Islam saving any ones life irrespective of his religion is as if he has saved whole of mankind.

Narrated by Abu Huraira The Prophet (saws) said, "A man felt very thirsty; while he was on the way there he came across a well. He went down the well, quenched his thirst and came out. Meanwhile he saw a dog panting and licking mud because of excessive thirst. He said to himself, "This dog is suffering from thirst as I did." He went down into the well again and filled his shoe with water, and then held it in his mouth until he climbed out and gave the dog water to drink. Allah appreciated him for that deed and forgave him. The people said, "O Allah's Messenger (saws)! Is there a reward for us in serving the animals?" He (saws) replied: "Yes, there is a reward for serving any animate (living being)." Sahih Al-Bukhari [Volume 3, Book 43, Number 646]

Thus from the above guidance of Allah & his messenger (pbuh), to help any creation of Allah, irrespective of whether he be a Muslim, non-Muslim , any type of animal or any other creation, only for the sake & Pleasure of Allah there is a reward in such deed.

So if any believer donates his blood to any non-Muslim solely to earn the Pleasure and the Good Will of Allah, without an iota of a doubt, they will have their due reward in the Presence of their Lord Most Majestic, Most Supreme. And Allah alone knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
