If a healthy person in light of the opinion of medical experts is sure that no fatal injuries will be afflicted on his/her survival, health, then it will be permissible for him/her to donate an organ, e.g. a kidney (without taking anything in exchange, monetary or otherwise) if it is necessary to save a patient’s life while no other alternative is available.  (Qaraaraatu Majlisil Majma’il Fiqhil Islaami, Page 148, Important Fiqh Decisions, Page 18-19
