Is the fatwa below correct because one of my friend’s mother needs a lung urgently. Please advise.
“Q. One of my Kidneys have failed and I require a Kidney transplant. My brother is willing to donate one of his Kidneys to me. Is it permissible for him to donate his Kidney to me and is it permissible for me to accept it?
A. It is permissible for a donor to donate his/her kidney and for the donee to accept the kidney to save his/her life based on the following conditions:
The donor’s life is not endangered by donating the kidney
The donor donates the kidney from his/her free will without any pressure
The donee’s sickness can only be cured through kidney transplantation
There is a high probability for the donee’s sickness to be cured through kidney transplantation
Therefore, it would be permissible for your brother to donate his kidney to you and for you to accept it based on the above conditions. (Fataawa Darul Uloom Zakariyya 6/723/ 725)”

(End of the CORRUPT fatwa)
The fatwa is absolutely corrupt and baatil. The use of human organs is absolutely HARAAM. Thus, ‘donation’ of one’s kidney or any part of the body is HARAAM. There is absolutely no Shar’i daleel for this permissibility disgorged by the Mufti who has grievously erred.
Maut comes at it’s appointed time. Nothing can advance Maut nor delay it. It arrives at its prescribed moment. Haraam medical treatment may not be resorted to for ‘saving life’. The idea of ‘saving life’ is a stupidity of the atheists. It is shockingly lamentable for muftis to entertain this idea of the atheists. Never can life be saved with haraam medical treatment nor with halaal medicine. However, the Shariah permits the utilization of halaal medicine just as it permits the utilization of halaal methods for earning one’s Rizq which like Maut is prescribed and fixed. Nothing will increase or decrease Rizq. It has been decreed and constitute an article of Taqdeer.
Here in this dunya we are obliged to adopt only what is HALAAL, and not conduct ourselves like the kuffaar who deny the Existence of the Creator. Organ donation and organ transplantation are HARAAM.
