This paper reviews some standpoints, deep research material and learning keys about organs transplantation, their donation and their economic status in light of Islamic teachings according to Quran, Sunnah, and fiqh(Mazahib e Arba). As we know that Organs transplantation in not a 20th century novelty. Indeed, it was known in one form or another even in prehistoric times. Ancient Hindu surgeons described methods for repai­ring defects of the nose and ears using auto grafts from the neighboring skin, a technique that remains to the present day. Susruta Sanhita, an old Indian medical document written in 700 BC, described the procedure later emulated by the Italian Tagliacozzi in the 16th century, and by British surgeons working in India in the 17th and 18th centuries, Now we also have to learn that if organs transplantation is a method that save humans life then on another hand it may open a wide gateway towards the human kidnapping and their killing crimes,  just for earning some money which strongly effect human morals and its society, so that’s why Islam doesn’t support organ transplantation and their donation in  each and every case except in some rare conditions which are mentioned in this article.
