Q. What is the Islamic belief is concerning blood transfusions?
A. A Muslim is allowed to receive blood from a non-Muslim. As for the recent [March 1997] donation of blood by Jordanian Muslim soldiers for non-Muslim schoolgirl victims of a Jordanian soldier’s shooting, then I suppose it falls under the heading of diyyat or compensation for unjust loss. Allah knows best.
