Nearly nine feet long (2.7 meters) and as big as a grizzly bear, a huge catfish caught in northern Thailand may be the largest freshwater fish ever recorded.

MashaAllah....

It is He Who has made the sea subject, that ye may eat thereof flesh that is fresh and tender, and that ye may extract therefrom ornaments to wear; and thou seest the ships therein that plough the waves, that ye may seek (thus) of the bounty of Allah and that ye may be grateful. (An-Nahl:14)

Nor are the two bodies of flowing water alike,- the one palatable, sweet, and pleasant to drink, and the other, salt and bitter. Yet from each (kind of water) do ye eat flesh fresh and tender, and ye extract ornaments to wear; and thou seest the ships therein that plough the waves, that ye may seek (thus) of the Bounty of Allah that ye may be grateful. (Al-Fatir:12)

I tend to agree. The image of the giant catfish seems quite appetizing, mash'Allah. :p Yes, it is halal, as are all sea creatures (although some scholars have held different opinions about some types).

I don't think shark meat is halal though. I don't have anything to back this up with by the way, I just have a gut feeling (pun intended), since it eats other fish (and draws blood). I also think anyone who could eat a dolphin is a vicious monster. :)

You are correct that there is a difference of opinion, but the most authoritative view is that it is permissable according to Shaykh-ul-Islam Muhammamad bin Saalih Al-Uthaymeen who said:
There is no exception to sea creatures - all that is in it is permissable according to the generality of the Verse and the Hadith. Some of the scholars have made the exception for the frog, the crocodile, and the snake, but the most authoritative view is that everything that does not live except in the sea is permissable. (Fatawa Islamiya, Volume 6, page 22)
Therefore, the Sharia itself does not contain any prohibitions in this regard and leaves it open to the individual and the societal customs in which they live in. I believe that the scholars may distinguish between crocodiles and aligators since the latter is known to spend more time out of the water, like a crab.

Hedgehog and Hippopotamus were also ruled permissable. :p Does anyone know if they taste good?

Hedgehogs? They don't live underwater! Besides, they're kinda prickly.

And Hippos? Hmm... it'd certainly bring an all new meaning to the game 'Hungry Hungry Hippos'

all that meat on that hippo, you could hold a feast with a hippo.

back to cat fish, its amazing it gets so big, although most species stay small. the catfish feed on algae which grow due to the sun.

It's probably a mutant catfish.

So bust out the ketchup.

Even pig becomes permissable if its the only food avaolable (and you'll die otherwise)! If someone told you hippo tastes goood, you should be adventurous and try it!

Hedgehogs? They don't live underwater!
I know, I just mentioned them because they were also mentioned in the same fatwa. :)

Besides, they're kinda prickly.
We pluck chicken feathers, so why not pluck hedgehog needles?

And Hippos? Hmm... it'd certainly bring an all new meaning to the game 'Hungry Hungry Hippos'
true! :laugh:

I hope there is good meat, and not just loads of fat.

Ahh, thanks for clearing that up bro Ansar.

I think Hippo meat would be kind of tough. Like really chewy. Kind of like goat. Catfish I think would taste absolutely awesome :brother:

Would have been much better to release him, save his life.
I never eat catfish, hedgehogs or hippopotamus -
but i found all of them very cute. :) I could not eat them, like i could not eat the rabbit once.

I have learned catfish is not halal because of the scales on it's body, also crab by some have been said to be harram as well, I have no idea why crab would be haram and lobster be halal they have the same shell. visit http://www.muslimconsumergroup.com you will be shocked to find out what is halal and haram
