Muslims believe that everything that they own has been given to them as an amanah (trust) from Allah. Would it constitute a breach in that trust to consent to enroll oneself as an organ donor? Cloning could rectify the problem of infertile couples, but such technology could also be abused with dire consequences. While euthanasia may apparently alleviate the suffering of the terminally ill, would that not compound their agony in the life here...
