Ruling on transplanting a kaafir heart into a Muslim

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
3mth old son just recevied a heart transplant because his old heart was not developed properly. My question is: He has a non-muslim heart beating inside of him, is it ok? Or did we make a wrong decision to have had the transplant?

Praise be to Allaah.

We put the following question to Shaykh ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Jibreen:

Is there any objection (in sharee’ah) to transplanting the heart of a dead kaafir into a Muslim body?

He, may Allaah preserve him, answered as follows:

No, because this organ is not the seat of disbelief or faith.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
