He has forbidden you only the Maitah (dead animals), and blood, and the flesh of swine, and that which is slaughtered as a sacrifice for others than God (or has been slaughtered for idols). But if one is forced by necessity, without wilful disobedience, nor transgressing due limits, then there is no sin on him. Truly, God is Oft-forgiving Most Merciful. [2:...

Salam. There are two views regarding eating meat of horse. I will try to write both below. But I will try to clear before that there is no order in Quran about the horse being halal or haram. So we will rely on Ahadith as: Eating Horse is Halal: This term is more accepted because it has some valid ahadith. It is stated in Bukhari as: Narrated Jabir bin `...

If eating human flesh wasn't haraam, it would not have been compared to backbiting. Al-Ĥujurāt :: Ayah 12 O you who have believed, avoid much [negative] assumption. Indeed, some assumption is sin. And do not spy or backbite each other. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his brother when dead? You would detest it. And fear Allah ; indeed, Allah ...

The exact words that you quoted are not in any Sunni book that I have come across. However, a hadith attributed to 'Ali ibn Abi Tālib — not to the Prophet — was documented by Muhammad al-Munawi in Fayd al-Qadīr: قال علي كرم الله وجهه: من ترك اللحم أربعين يوما ساء خلقه ومن داوم عليه أربعين يوما قسا قلبه — NOTE: My own translation, so treat with care. ...

According to Jafari Fiqh the meat of boars is Haram (forbidden) but it is not Najis. Products made of its hair like brush are allowed to be used. Ref: By online Answering from Official website of Grand Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi.

Eating horse is makruh according to the Hanafi and Maliki madhab. Their evidence includes: In the Quran 16:5-7, Allah mentions cattle and the various benefits that may be derived from them including their use in food. However horses are then mentioned separately and being food is omitted from their purpose, and if it was permitted to eat them then that ...

No, it does not become haram when prepared by a non-Muslim. There are five simple conditions that must be met for meat to be considered halal. I have pages of discussion and notes on this, so permit me to summarize: Intelligence: He has to understand and intend to slaughter, on purpose. (This excludes accidental/unintentional slaughtering.) Religion: He ...

Because Halal slaughter is intended to inflict the least pain on the animal by cutting the arteries which suddenly drains the brain from blood and renders the animal brain-dead and thus unable to feel the pain any longer. Saying "Bismillah" and facing the animal towards Qibla are also meant to highlight the awareness that the slaughter is a gift of God and ...

As Dynamic provided the Ayah: He has forbidden you only the Maitah (dead animals), and blood, and the flesh of swine, and that which is slaughtered as a sacrifice for others than God (or has been slaughtered for idols). But if one is forced by necessity, without wilful disobedience, nor transgressing due limits, then there is no sin on him. Truly, ...

Why don't you share some meat with him? Who told you that Muslims can't share the meat of sacrifice to their non-Muslim friends? I have never heard of such ruling. The meat that is given to the poor (1/3) must be given to Muslims who are poor but you can share the meat which is part of your share (2/3) with your friend and other non-Muslims. Read the ...

The conditions for halal slaughtering Basically food is made of some ingredients among them you may find meat or flesh so the general ruling allowing to eat the food of the people of the book in (5:5) allows eating the meat of slaughtered animals (as long as they are not among those quoted in (5:3), (2:173), (6:121)) according some conditions the most ...

Well if you ate it without the meat everything should be fine inchaAllah: If you ordered a sandwich without meat and when eating found out there is meat inside, and didn't continue eating the meat, also everything is fine inshaAllah as it was not your intention to eat meat and normally you will taste the meat easily and stop eating. So what you could and ...

That is a great question and here is what I know. It makes sense to me therefore I share it here. I believe the world is now advancing and we see more and more of man's interference in Allah's natural produce. I will not debate whether that is right or wrong as it does not help your question. So we'll just accept that it is what it is. Scientifically ...

There are differences in opinion as to what is regarded as halal. This depends on which madhab(school of law) or scholarly opinions you follow. It is clear that no meat can be consumed without saying Bismilah. According to Sh. Yusuf Qaradawi, he said the following. "It is not required of the Muslim to inquire about what he has not witnessed, i.e., How was ...

The Qur'an clearly permits eating animals where it says, O you who have believed, fulfill [all] contracts. Lawful for you are the animals of grazing livestock except for that which is recited to you [in this Qur'an] - hunting not being permitted while you are in the state of ihram. Indeed, Allah ordains what He intends. In addition to pork, which ...

TL;DR: According to the Qur'an, ahadith, and fatawa, it's generally permissible to eat meat slaughtered by People of the Book provided we say the name of Allah over it, and provided the animal was slaughtered in an Islamically valid way. However, fatawa further state that the default assumption is that meat in the West is slaughtered in an invalid way, and ...

Egyptian vultures are birds of prey. Birds of prey are clearly haram as the Prophet forbade it. Ibn 'Abbas reported that Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) prohibited the eating of all fanged beasts of prey, and all the birds having talons. (Sahih Muslim-no.1934). This means that birds that hunt with talons (claws) are haram to eat.

The answer to "Is it possible to be forgiven for [blah] by Allah?" is going to be "Yes." See Does Allah forgive every sin? He who seeks repentance (from the Lord) before the rising of the sun from the west (before the Day of Resurrection), Allah turns to him with Mercy. Sahih Muslim 2703 But the decision is up to Allah: Indeed, Allah does not ...

You have answered your own question. Just use a bit of deductive reasoning:- Muslims cannot eat meat that is not Halal and Zabiha Texas restaurants are not halal except when they are clearly labelled as halal Thus, Muslims cannot eat from Texas restaurants except when they are clearly labelled as halal

The hadith that you quoted is not in any Sunni book that I have come across. Some have attributed this saying to Abū al-'Alā' al-Ma'arri but without citing references. An unattributed saying (potentially words of wisdom preserved through tradition over time) was documented by Muhammad al-Munawi in Fayd al-Qadīr: وكبعض الحكماء حيث قال: يا أبناء الحكمة لا ...

Allah the almighty said in the Qur'an: 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], ...

Turkey is halal. Birds that are haram are those which hunt with their talons, and Turkeys do not do that: نهى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم عن كل ذي ناب من السباع وعن كل ذي مخلب من الطير Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) prohibited the eating of all fanged beasts of prey, and all the birds having talons. — Sahih Muslim , كتاب الصيد والذبائح وما يؤكل من ...

You said the person on the till is a Muslim and he claim that the meat is halal. That is enough to buying food from them. If in future you understand that the food was not halal there is no sin for you.

Let me firstly bring to light a hadith which is well known.... Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: O people, Allah is Good and He therefore, accepts only that which is good. And Allah commanded the believers as He commanded the Messengers by saying: "O Messengers, eat of the good things, and do good deeds; verily ...

I am not scholar so I don't have any authority to give FATWA (juristic ruling) on this matter. As an ordinary Muslim I can answer that saying Bism-Allah Alrahaman Alraheemon Haram food do not make it halal. A link on this topic: Haram and Halal Meat

In islam, all animals worship Allah and praise him, even if this praise is not known to human. Generally, a Mulsim should be kind to animals and any living (non-harmful) creature. While the Prophet (PBUH) was with a companion of his, they entered a garden. The prophet saw a camel which came closer and started crying with tears. The prophet asked about his ...

Well as we know Surat al-Maida is one of the last revealed (revealed after the treaty of Hudaibiah) Surat of the Quran! And in verse 5 you can read the following: "All the good and pure things have today been made lawful for you; the food of the people of the Book is lawful for you, and your food for them, Likewise you are permitted to marry chaste ...

I'm sorry I can't give you an honest answer, most of what I'll say will be my personal (non-religious) opinion. Why hasn't also our religion evolved like everything else had? I think many factors come into this. The major one would be, if Allah really does exist and did send Islam, then how can a being with finite wisdom know more than a Being with ...
