One of the amazing feats of science is that human organs are successfully transplanted into another human body, recently, a new type of will called "Testament of Organ Donation "has been introduced. In the present era, many Muslims bequeath their organs out of compassion and with the intention of obtaining a reward. The Islamic Ideological Council of Pakistan has conducted important research on this topic, discussing and researching it from different aspects in about ten meetings. As a result, the Transplantation of Human Organs and Tissues Act 2018 was passed. However, according to this research, there are a few things to be considered in this legislation and its recommendations: Is the human body a trust or is it completely owned? What is the status: of a human being in using and receiving benefits? If available, what are the options for using and obtaining benefits? Will there be any difference in this property with respect to life and death? The status of donation during life is different from the status of endowment, and especially wills, which are different. Is this action really Shariah compliant, legal, ethical, and socially correct and appropriate, and is it rewarding or not? Apparently, these issues are not clear in the recommendations and legislation of the Islamic Ideological Council, so they are also worthy of research.
