Hello,

I have already given my blood to a hospital. I'd do it in a regular basis if I could. I think it's one great kind of Dadaqah one can give. Anyone around me knows that when they need a B+ type of blood, I'm the woman!!

In Ramadhan, I think, it's better to give blood after iftar. I'd do it myself before. More knowledgeable pple will certainly answer your quieries.

It's fine to GIVE our blood to family members, to strangers or even to our enemies in war. But we are not allowed to sell our blood for money.

There is no problem if you want to give your blood in ramadhan, but do it after iftar.

Donating blood is 100% a-ok

But during the day during Ramadan, I wouldn't. You're suppose to eat and drink after giving blood to make up for the strength you've lost, and you wouldn't be able to do that. That would put your health at risk.

Salam,
For the sake of saving other people I find it very good for those who do it. Saving lives and helping other people is just good. Me myself I wouldn't handle it but that's another story.

Firstly on (I think the site was) Islam online this was definitely a good thing to do as it saves lives. But on most of the fatwa sites I have seen it is always positive.

Do NOT give it during Ramadhan, not for religious reasons but because you are supposed to drink beforehand and eat and drink afterwards to restore lost body fluids. You do not want to be messing with low blood sugar and partial exsanguination, even if the blood loss is not supposed to make much difference.

Yup, what UmmS and Santoku said- also, note that if giving blood could harm you physically (such as during Ramadan, since you can't eat/drink afterward) then I assume donating blood would be considered haram, since it leads to self harm. So if you want to donate blood, do it before Ramadan, or wait until it's over inshaAllah.
