Which part of a slaughtered animal is halal and which part is haram?

A few people say that tongue is halal and a few say tongue is haram. Also, contradiction on other parts like small intestine and large intestine, etc.

So can anyone give some references, please?

All parts of the Zabiha is halal, with the exception of the blood since it's the only part that was explicitely stated as haram:

Al An'am 6:145

Say, "I do not find within that which was revealed to me [anything] forbidden to one who would eat it unless it be a dead animal or blood spilled out or the flesh of swine - for indeed, it is impure - or it be [that slaughtered in] disobedience, dedicated to other than Allah . But whoever is forced [by necessity], neither desiring [it] nor transgressing [its limit], then indeed, your Lord is Forgiving and Merciful."

Al An'am 6:145

  • I've certainly read 'hadith' that the marrow from the neck is not halal. But it had no source. Jan 17, 2015 at 17:19
