Ruling on Halal Meat.


What is halal meat?


Except what Allah has forbidden from among the meats, all types of meat is good and halal.

The meats Allah has forbidden are: dead meat, blood, pork meat and what has been dedicated to other than Allah, like idols and all what people take as God except Allah or that upon which the name of Allah has not been mentioned, and those from which a wild animal, and bird which infuse with her canines, or claw has eaten, and all mischievous insects, or birds and the like, or harmful animal to health. But all other animals excluding what have been mentioned are halal(lawful), from among the wild and sea animals, like livestock animals like camels, cow, cattle, sheep, chicken and fish, and game from the land like antelope and rabbits.

May Allah grants us success, and may Allah bless our Prophet Muhammad and his family and his companions.

Original text of the Fatwa in Arabic:


ما هو اللحم الحلال؟ 


ما عدا ما حرم الله من اللحوم فهو حلال طيب، والذي حرمه الله هو: الميتة والدم ولحم الخنزير وما ذبح لغير الله من الأصنام والمعبودات من دون الله أو ذكر عليه اسم غير الله، وسباع البهائم والطير التي تفرس بأنيابها أو مخالبها، وكل ما هو مستخبث من الحشرات والطيور ونحوها، أو مضر بالصحة، وما عدا ذلك فهو حلال من حيوانات البر والبحر كبهيمة الأنعام، وهي: الإبل والبقر والغنم، والدجاج والسمك، وصيد البر من الظبا والأرانب.

وبالله التوفيق، وصلى الله على نبينا محمد وآله وصحبه وسلم.
