This webinar was organised by Al Balagh Academy on 18th March 2018. The purpose of this event was to create awareness and better understanding of concerns related to organ donation and to explore ways of bringing medical professionals, community leaders, religious scholars, and Muslim experts in Bioethics together to discuss issues of concern to the Muslim community.
The webinar, which was hosted by DR. RAFAQAT RASHID (Academic Director, Al Balagh Academy), consisted of 3 Panellists

The webinar attempts to explore the questions such as ;

What is halal or haram in organ donation in Islam?
A brain-dead person can still be considered alive, so how can any vital organs, like the heart, be taken out?

What is the true meaning of “Our bodies belong to God”?
Why individual Muslims are hesitant when it comes to organ donation?
