    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1218/1218=M/1430)

     

    What you have heard is right, the reason is that a man is not owner of his body to have freewill to act whatever he likes. A man can make a donation or write a will for things which he possesses, but he is not the owner of his body parts, so donating eyes etc after death is unlawful and invalid.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
