Question

In Islam, is it permissible for a Muslim to donate blood and/or bone marrow?

Answer

It is permissible for a Muslim to donate blood only if it would not be used for cosmetic reasons.

As for bone marrow, it is possible with today's technology to use the patient's bone marrow to produce new bone marrow. If in a particular situation, this is possible, then it will not be permissible to use another human's bone marrow. However, if the doctor advise for a new bone marrow, then it will be permissible.
