WHY TO DONATE BLOOD ?
A blood donation truly is a “gift of life” that a healthy individual can give to others in their community who are sick or injured. In one hour’s time, a person can donate one unit of bloodthat can be separated into four individual components that could help save multiple lives.
From one unit of blood ....
In a recent study supported by the National Blood Foundation USA, more than 5,000 individuals who were current blood donors at the time or who had given blood in the past were asked why they donate blood. Nearly three-quarters of the respondents said that they give blood to help others. Respondents also said that giving blood makes them feel good about themselves; supports their local communities and hospitals; supports their community culture; and “pays back” society for the times when they or their families have needed blood transfusions in the past. For all of these reasons and more, donating blood is a good idea.
Islam enjoins preserving human life and protecting it against all potential harm, affliction and hardship, and it insists on ensuring peace and security for human beings.
In the Quran, Allah says, "To save one life is to save all humanity". Islamic law urges every Muslim to be in constant support of his community, and make it a legal requirement in many cases. According to a saying by the Prophet Muhammed (Peace Be Upon Him) "He who relieves a believer of one form of distress, in this life shall be relieved by Allah of a greater distress on the Day of Resurrection"
Therefore, if giving blood to a patient is necessary for his survival, then, according to Islam, it becomes mandatory to donate blood`, as a case of implementing a basic Islamic principle which makes it imperative to preserve human life. Two important main Islamic rules are also applicable here, namely: "Harm must be eliminated" & "Necessity overrules constraints". Further more it is in agreement with the Islamic principles of social justice.
