Donating bodies

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Salam Alaykum

Does anyone know if donating bodies for use in medical research or teaching medical students is permitted?

I was thinking about this because technically if you contribute something to the world of science etc this is sadaqah jarriyah (lasts long after you're dead) so if by donating your body you are helping the advancement of medicine/technology does the same rule apply?

Thanks

(salam),

If you asked about, after his death, it is not allowed:

Q133: Dissection of a corpse after death, if it is done for a reasonable purpose such as criminal investigation, teaching of medicine or similar purposes.

A: It is not permissible to dissect a Muslim corpse for these kinds of reasons. The dissecting of the body of an unbeliever whose blood is not protected during his lifetime is permissible, and likewise when the protection of his blood is doubtful, if there is no shar'i sign of it being so (protected). (FM, p. 416)

If during his life (such as experiments) it is not allowed as he is putting his life into danger, which is a form of suicide in itself.
