      organ donation?
Islam :

   soon as possible after death and they Violating the
   human body, whether living or dead, is illegal in Islam.
• But they did not use this in a number of instances: firstly
   in cases of necessity and secondly in saving another
   person's life which that has great relevance to organ
   donation. Allah greatly rewards those who save others
   from death.
Christianity :

     organ donation as an act of love and a way of following
     Jesus' example .
• organ donation is considered acceptable to Roman
     Catholics and most Protestants .
• But Christian Scientists object to all forms of organ
     donation and transplantation .
Hinduism :
• There are many references that support the concept of
   organ donation in Hindu scriptures.
• Life after death is a strong belief of Hindus and is an
   ongoing process of rebirth. The law of karma decides
   which way the soul will go in the next life.
• Organ donation is an integral part of the Hindu way of
   life, as guided by the Vedas. Hindus have no objection to
   organ donation,
Lutheran ;

• In 1984, the Lutheran Church in America passed a
  resolution stating that donation contributes to the
  well-being of humanity .

• It can be "an expression of sacrificial love for a
  neighbor in need." They call on "members to consider
  donating organs and to make any necessary family
  and legal arrangements, including the use of a signed
  donor card."
Gypsies (Romany);

• Gypsies are a people of different ethnic groups without
  a formalized religion. They share common folk beliefs
  and tend to be opposed to organ and tissue donation.

  the afterlife. Traditional belief contends that for one
  year after death, the soul retraces its steps. Thus, the
  body must remain intact because the soul maintains its
  physical shape
