Salaam brothers and sisters,

I was wondering if anyone could tell me whether Lobsters are halal or not? I'm assuming not seeing as they eat other creatures, e.g. crabs. But if anyone could clarify this I would appreciate it.

Jazakhalla Khair

ive reaserched this topic of seafood quite a bit and currently hold my personal firm opinion...

i wont share it coz it is a deep topic and it doesnt coincide with the direct teachings of madhab leaders.

i do not know the story behind lobsters tho...ive just reaserch seafood as a whole...

im sure someone will throw in a url before u can say...url...

salams.

wa'salaams,

Are there any types of seafood that Muslims are not permitted to eat?


...Of course, all this applies to the seafood itself. As far as cooked or processed seafood, any added ingredients, flavors or cooking methods that introduce haram ingredients would make the seafood haram.

But the question is, why would anybody want to eat a slimy old hagfish anyway? They secrete chemicals which turn water into goop and love nothing better than boring into the side of a dead fish...

Ramadan Mubarak Fishman!

good to see you around!

on topic, ive heard fro those who say shellfish is halaal that they shouldn't be consumed in large quantities because the tend to have a large fat content.

make sure you clarify the butter though...

[starts salivating for some fried scallops and fried clams :p ]

Q.) I would like to ask whether oyster or oyster extract, shrimp, lobster, and shark are halal, haram, makrooh, or makrooh-e-tahrimi according to all four madhabs. Can you please specify the view of each of the four Imams regarding each of the sea foods.
A.) According to the Hanbaliy and Shafi'ee scholars, all living creatures that live in the sea are halal, whether they are in the form of a fish or not. (Fiqh alal Madhaahib al-Arbaa). Based on this, oyster, oyster extract, shrimp, lobster and shark are all halal and permissible.
According to the Maliki scholars, every living creature of the sea is halal and permissible. except eel. (Ibid) Hence, oyster, oyster extract, shrimp, lobster and shark are
According to the Hanafi scholars, the only living creatures of the sea that are permissible are those that are in the form of a fish with an exception of the hagfish and eel. (Ibid). (these 2 even though they are not in the form of a fish they will be permissible to consume).
Hence, according to the Hanafi scholars, it will not be permissible to eat oyster, oyster extract, shrimp and lobsters. It will be permissible to consume shark as it is in the form of a fish.
