Looking forward for valuable informations. Abdul Azeez

      Prawn or any scavenger whether sea land or flight birds according to definition was declared harm. Do please don’t try to justify for your satisfaction.

    • ALI ADNAN says:

      Assalaamualaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatuhu,
      All bony fish which are not carnivorous are halaal Since I do not know which part of the world you belong to then giving examples is not desirable. Cartilgenous fish is haraam. Fish with scales are halaal if they are bony and non- carnivorous.Whoever says- shark is halaal is wrong.

      • AHMAD says:

        I AM SORRY TO INFORM YOU BROTHER THAT IT IS YOU INDEED WHO IS WRONG!
        SHARK IS PERFECTLY HALAL!

  3. please i want to know the halal sea food in islam

  4. AH says:

    Sister Shahina. The types of halal sea food depends on which Madhab you follow. There is a difference of opinion of what is “fish” between the different schools. The Hanafi definition of fish is more restricted than the Shafi’i one so for example Imam Abu Hanifa position was that prawns are not fish whereas Imam Shafi’i deemed that prawns were fish.

    Go to http://www.sunnipath.com for lists of what is allowed under Hanafi fiqh and a discussion of the madhab differences.

    By the way Dr Z Naik does not follow a madhab so please bear this in mind when he listening to his bayans.

      Assallam O Allaikum, dear Muslim friend, we are only allowed to eat haram if our life is threatened with hunger or if we are physically forced to do so, but in your case I had similar problems when I came back to Canada & halal meat wasn’t convenient for me right away so I kept eating lentils which are a great source of protein & highly nurtritious, & with some spices can be far better tasting than any meat, in the mean time pray to Allah that may He give you means of enjoying halal meat once again, like I did, & InshAllah very soon you shall find some way of obtaining halal meat, but I assure you, that InshAllah, lots of potato, lentils & other healthy and nutrisious dishes & alternatives will easily help you maintain a healthy weight level, InshAllah, Jazak Allah

    • fatma says:

  10. Zahir says:

    Zakir naik follows it as long it conforms to the Quran & authentic traditions, & it makes sense. This approach is not in contradiction to the teachings of Hanafi, Shafi, Malki or Humbli. You can follow any one of them as long as it follows the authentic hadeeth & the Quran.

  11. Ali says:

    Islamic greetings,

    Brothers and sisters in Islam. I am living in Germany and having a problem of having halaal meat. Some people say, its not allowed to eat meat that is being sold here in super markeets but some says that its allowed. No doubt, Allah’s name was not there while slaughtering that particular animal but some one can say with the name of Allah while eating the meat.

    What is authentic and what is not?

    • n says:

      Assalamulaikum wr wb brother,

      If you can’t find halal meat. You can try finding kosher meat sold by the jews. We can eat that. Another idea is if you find any christian butcher who does slaughterings, you can tell him that if you mention the name of god when slaughtering, me and other muslims will buy meat from you.

      If you really can’t, then buy seafood.

      If you really can’t then try to only buy poultry from the supermarket because they normally don’t die before being slaughtered, and mention the name of Allah SWT. Finally, you can buy the other if it is too difficult and mention the name of Allah SWT.

      http://quran.com/6/118-119

      Allah SWT, does not make things hard for us, and Allah SWT knows best and may forgive me for any wrong advice I gave.

      • Noor says:

        Salaam,

        I appreciate you bringing focus to the fact that Allah makes it easy for us to be a muslim. Reading some of the contradictory comments above confused me about all the shark fins I saw being sold in Saudi super markets.

        Thank you kindly.

          Waalaikumussalaam wr wb,

          Although we have been prohibited to eat predators with fangs
          http://sunnah.com/search/fangs

          About sharks, from what I can deduce they are permissable. I would eat shark meat or drink shark fin soup. But I won’t go buy shark meat and make it because of the hadith above, just to be safe. But I would order it at a restaurant just not to make haram what Allah SWT has made halal.
          http://quran.com/5/96

          Although we shouldn’t have too much of shark (or anything for that matter) because shark might contain some level of mercury.
          http://water.epa.gov/scitech/swguidance/fishshellfish/outreach/advice_index.cfm

          Certain sea creatures which are already found dead like whale are permissable. As long as they are not hazardous.
          http://www.sunnah.com/urn/40540

          May Allah SWT forgive us for and from anything that I’ve said wrong.

          • n says:

            If you think about it, a large amount of fish in the sea are predatory and have fang-like teeth anyways. So why do people keep making an exception for the shark? Jaws 3?

            On second thought, I would buy shark meat if I wanted to. Allah SWT knows best.

            Assalamulaikum wr wb.

    • n says:

      Assalamualaikum wr wb br Samiullah,

      I will try my best to answer this Inshallah, but only Allah knows best and forgive me if I’m wrong and please also do some research.

      Everyone is responsible for what they do and they alone have to answer to Allah SWT. We can advice and tell them but in the end it is up to themselves. I agree with what you say, you advice is correct and you will be rewarded for your effort.

      In the end only Allah SWT knows their true circumstance and if they think that they have an answer to give to Allah SWT on the day of judgement for the meat they ate while there were so many other halal meat like fish they could eat for almost the same price; then they can continue eating it.

      Allah SWT is they most merciful and he might forgive them, but you will be rewarded even for the thought of abstaining from the meat for sure. We Muslims are allowed to even eat something haram like pig when there is nothing else to eat and we’re dying out of hunger. But I strongly feel this is not the right situation we are allowed to do that yet. I’m fairly positive any Muslim you ask will agree.

      One more thing br. just because you are trying to follow Allah SWT’s commandments, my heart is not calm until I tell you that riba, taking or paying interest is haram also. Just incase you didn’t know. Please research more about it and stay away from it. We are not in this dunia for long, it is not worth it.. akhirah is better. Here is a link to a lecture about prohibition of riba. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=spPDccqW1ls

      Assalamulaikum wr wb, may Allah SWT reward you and forgive me for all mistakes :'(

  13. Guleed says:

    Is eating squid halal or haram according to sunah

    • n says:

      Assalamulaikum wr wb. As far as I know its halal brother.

    • Junaid says:

      What do u mean halal by Sunnah, you should be asking if it is Halal in Islam, you should always follow Quran and look towards Hadees/sunnah if something is not clearly mentioned in Qura’an

  14. i says:

    It depends on what school of thought you follow If you follow Hanafi then no its halaal to eat.

  15. i says:

    It depends on what school of thought you follow If you follow Hanafi then no its not halaal to eat.

  16. Tanveer Siddiqui says:

    Request people to make an effort
    and read the quran
    and read the translation and then
    ask other people if still required.

    Chapter: 16 , Verse: 14
    The word Nahl translates to meat.
    It does not translate to Fish.

    Also read for yourself verse
    Chapter: 5 , Verse: 96

  17. Syed Jamal Naqvi says:

    What is meant by different school of thoughts when the origin is from the same book Quran….What does Quran say about seafood and Kosher….can we eat all the seafood and can we eat kosher meat in restaurants where they don’t serve Halal. I read in some places that in the Kosher way of slaughtering they also say the name of Allah as per the Toorah, is this correct.

  18. Samreen says:

    Asalualeikum dr zakir naik, my question is for u, I just want to know If there is a Surat or verses where it is mentioned that prawns are haram? Please answer bcause I am very confused about this bcause some muftis or maulanas says that it is halal but i believe in Quran and hadiths.

    • nn says:

      Assalamualaikum wr wb, sister Samreen, I don’t think Dr. Zakir monitors this thread. Not Zakir Naik but I know that in the Quran 5:96 “Lawful to you is game from the sea and its food as provision for you and the travelers, but forbidden to you is game from the land as long as you are in the state of ihram. And fear Allah to whom you will be gathered.”

      The Jews who keep kosher don’t eat shellfish such as lobsters, oysters, shrimp, clams and crabs because of their interpretation it says in the “torah” Lev. 11:9; Deut. 14:9 “Of the things that are in the waters, you may eat anything that has fins and scales..”

      Only in the Hanafi madhab if I’m not mistaken Prawns are makruh but not haram. But do check it up as I’m not a 100% sure. Hope this helps a bit. Assalamulaikum wr wb.

  19. Me says:

    Ppl what is wrong with u? Since when muslim can eat kosher? Stop misleading others and not all sea food is allowed snails are haram for example! Wash ur mouths when you talk about Allah law and ask forgiveness! Jews have a different law about cutting meat and I remind u guys that Jews are eating like Christians now and they have their own wine! Does it make it halal too? Allah made us different from the rest for a reason, I’m very surprise how ppl are ignorant these days! Allah knows best

    • n says:

      Since Surah Maida ayah 5 was revealed: This day [all] good foods have been made lawful, and the food of those who were given the Scripture is lawful for you and your food is lawful for them. And [lawful in marriage are] chaste women from among the believers and chaste women from among those who were given the Scripture before you, when you have given them their due compensation, desiring chastity, not unlawful sexual intercourse or taking [secret] lovers. And whoever denies the faith – his work has become worthless, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers.

      Surah Maida:96
      Lawful to you is game from the sea and its food as provision for you and the travelers, but forbidden to you is game from the land as long as you are in the state of ihram. And fear Allah to whom you will be gathered.

      Eat what is halal (lawful) and tayyib (good) and Allah SWT knows best. If you love sea snails then go ahead and eat them they’re halal a 100%. http://islamqa.info/en/ref/114855
      Anything I’ve said wrong is mine alone.

    • Mordachi says:

      Kosher Meat is halal, so is chicken and turkey. Fish too. What has wine got to do with it? Observant Jews do not eat like Christians. Leave the wine for me, thanks and may Allah bless you.

  20. Nadia says:

    so is squid halal or not? people beat around the bush way too much. and if it is not, why not?

  21. Abidur Rahman says:

    Assalamualaikum. I just wanted to know if Squid is Halal in our Religion. I’ve read that in some parts of Malaysia, Muslims prefer squids, but I’m still confused. So please someone tell me if squid is Halal or not.

  22. Nousheen says:

    Can we eat kishor chicken if hilal meat is not available. Which fish is not hilal

  23. Nouman says:

    if chicken is not slaughtered according to islam or the chicken without takbeerah . is that chicken haram or makrooh or what?

  24. There seems to be so much confusion about Halal and Haram food among muslims in western countries also even in muslim countries. Why can’t muslim scholoars from all islamic denominations get together and study every sects rulings on halal and Haram food. I have read some where in quran that only fish halal are the ones that have Gills muslims have traditionally followed it. There was nothing about fins and scales that is the rulings from Tuarat(torah) Old Tastement of Jewish Bible. Looking at the Shia rulings and Hanafi rulings are almost similar there for it seems like Shia’s are much closer to the food practice in Prophet’s time so is the Imam Hanifa’s. Imam Malik , Hambali and Shafi’s ruling may have arised becoz of the vast majority of muslims around the coastal areas of Africa, asia and Pacific have life depends on those food. I don’t think eating other sea food other than fish will make you sinner
