Muslim families warm to organ and tissue donation ahead of Donate Life Week
by James Taylor
"The Muslim faith places saving a life very highly".
These are the words of Australia's Grand Mufti, Ibrahim Abu Mohammed, in a message of support for organ donation.
"Islam accepts organ donation and it is seen as an act of merit," he said.
Dr Ibrahim's fatwa to Muslims has resonated with a community suspicious of organ and tissue harvesting.
For years, doctors have struggled to broach the lifesaving practice with grieving Muslim families.
