As a Muslim, I believe I should be buried as a whole body, no organs donated. I opted out of the nhs organ donor register. I told my sister and asked her if she is as well? She said no, she would rather donate her organs if it helps someone stay alive. Whilst it is her choice, would it be rude of me to disagree, and if it isn't how would I go about it? TBH, I'm just shocked at her views really, but have better things to worry about.

We are in the 21st century. You can state your opinion, but do not force it upon her.

She is right, to be honest...if you can give your organs to someone who needs it, why not?

The thought of a doctor cutting my dead body to get my organs out just seems grim. I'd rather not have that to be honest. But yes you're right, it can save lives. So it's a tough choice imo

You can talk to her about your feelings and opinions and explain why you disagree. But you can't force her to change her view. It's up to her.

Why? If your death could improve, or even save, the lives of others, why wouldn't you?

How can you disagree with that?

Rude, illogical and heartless.

I'm shocked at yours, based on zero evidence. IMO, she is doing the right thing, and you're doing the wrong one.

Yes, but you will be dead, so you won’t really know what’s happening.

And that's entirely your choice.

As long as you wouldn't accept donated organs if you needed them and chose to die instead, it wouldn't be hypocritical at all.

Not really expressly forbidden by your religion may in fact make her a better Muslim.

The majority of Islamic religious leaders accept organ donation during life (provided it does not harm the donor) and after death in order to save life. Most religious leaders do not accept brain death as a criterion and consider cessation of all signs of life including heart beat as a precondition for declaring death

It's not a tough choice. You will know nothing about it.

Is it better to have your body cremated or buried whole? You either burn, or have it eaten by worms. I'd rather that anything that can be useful to others, is.

Might do that, but it's her choice, I don't really care what she does

1)I wouldn't want me to die, then be cut up, then buried. I'd rather die and get buried quick. And it's against religion.
2)there's other ways you can help people stay alive. You can probably donate to a health charity, etc.
3) I do disagree, but don't want to come across rude. She is my sister after all.
4) I appreciate you're shocked at my judgement. You are free to disagree. However, I believe I was born as a human with organs, and should die and be buried as one too.

My family will be there, and might not be a pleasant thought for them

Fair enough. No it's not rude to disagree with her, but it would be rude to force your opinions on her.

I wouldn't ever force my opinion. If you don't agree, that up to you. At the end of the day, she's still my sister, and I'm her brother, so will treat her as such.

Is this based on any rational reasoning?

You may have a postmortem.

(Original post by Anonymous)
And it's against religion.
What is the logic (if any) behind that? IMO, it's always better for your body to save lives than be eaten by worms.

Religion is probably the weakest reason to do, or not do, something.

That is orthogonal to organ donating. You can do both.

I'm glad that you have a good relationship with her.

Again, what is the logic behind that assertion?

But as the OP is a Muslim we believe you can feel pain even after death.

I am a Muslim also and my son has decided not to opt out. His theory is simple that in order for us to save life, as life is precious in Islam, we will do anthing to save our own life including taking other people's organs for our transplant so if we are allowed to take others why aren't we allowed to give ours. I respect his decision as religion is personal.

Tbh I'm more shocked at your choice. When you're dead you won't need your organs, whereas they could be used to save someone else from death, pretty selfish tbh. Yes, you have a right to disagree with your sister, but it's her body and her decision

Come again? That's impossible because the body and brain is dead so how would you feel pain??? :confused:
