Modern technology has given rise to a host of legal and theological questions for Muslims. One such question that engaged Muslim scholars since the 1950s was the issue of organ donation. It brought into question and conflict a number of ethical teachings such as the value of saving life as opposed to the dignity and honour that should be afforded to the dead. The article is based on a small pilot-study comprising themes from interviews with three UK muftis. The resulting conclusion of the article will form the evidence-base for further research into understanding perception of organ transplantation and authority among UK Muslim religious professionals (imams, ulama and chaplains).
