Blood transfusion

Fatwaa ID: 2000

Is it permissible for a women to agree to a blood transfusion.

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

A blood transfusion is a medical procedure in which donated blood or blood components are given to a patient through an intravenous line (IV). This is given to replace blood and blood components that may be too low or may have been lost due to an injury or a surgery.

It is permissible for a person, male or female, to agree to a blood transfusion prescribed or recommended by an upright physician.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
