“However, we are again needed to help create awareness about a convalescent plasma drive being led by NHS.”

The statement was signed by 17 mosques from across Birmingham city. Mosques in the initiative include Green Lane Masjid and Community Centre (GLMCC) in Small Heath, Birmingham Central Mosque in Highgate, and Masjid Al Falaah in Aston.

Blood transfusion for medical purposes is permissible in Islam, as it orders Muslims to feed the hungry, take care of the sick, and save the lives of people.

It is also permissible to take blood from a non-Muslim and it is permissible to give blood to non-Muslims. These matters are related to human life.

It is essential for Muslims to focus on their principles of charity during a time of global fear.

Who is it that would loan Allah a goodly loan so He may multiply it for him many times over? And it is Allah who withholds and grants abundance, and to Him, you will be returned.” (The Holy Qur’an, 2:245)
