702 Can we give and should we give CPR?
From my understanding, CPR (Cardiopulmonary resuscitation) is used as a last-resort measure to save a person’s life. Though the actual practice of mouth to mouth resuscitation is not openly encouraged in Islam, it would not be forbidden if it led to saving someone’s life, an act which holds great reward in Islam.

In the Holy Qur’an, Allah (S.W.T) describes the saving of one life as the saving of entire humanity. (5: 32)
