Q: 52 – Title: Last week I bought some Fish from Sainsburys, after getting it home and a few days later. I realised that it has the Jewish Star sign, therefore I know that the £4 I paid has gone to Israel to aid them...

Question

I see and undertand all the conflicts going on between the muslims and none muslims, so decided to boycott companies and individuals who support these conflicts.

Last week I bought some Fish from Sainsburys, after getting it home and a few days later.  I realised that it has the Jewish Star sign, therefore I know that the £4 I paid has gone to Israel to aid them.

I tried getting it replaced/exchanged/refunded as I still had a rceipt and nothig was wrong with it.  But had no luck so far because its a chilled product.  I'm still in the processing of sorting this.

As far as I know all the ingredients inside a halal.

1. If all else fails, would I be allowed to eat this or would it be haraam for me , as I cannot give it back or get my money back and I know that my money will be used in conflicts.
2. We have to pay Taxes here - this money is also used in these conflicts but we have to pay so what does Islam say about this?

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


Assalamu 'alaykum wa Rahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

1) If there is no contamination of any Haraam substances added to the fish, the fish will be Halaal and suitable to consume. The mere fact that a company supports a particular issue will not render the products of that company to be Haraam

2) A Muslim living in a Non-Muslim country should comply and adhere to all the rules and regulations laid down by that country on condition such rules are not unislamic. It does not befit a Muslim to merely live in a Non-Muslim country, make use of all the facilities it provides and then refuse to pay the taxes due on him. In our opinion, reasonable taxes due to the state are a legitimate charge and should be paid. Thereafter, if the state uses a portion of these taxes to aid certain conflicts, it is beyond his control and he will not fall in the ambit of assisting in sin.

Could you confirm if there is an opinion of permissibility on crabs as per your Fatwa # 18321? PDF Print E-mail

Q: 49 – Title: Could you confirm if there is an opinion of permissibility on crabs as per your Fatwa # 18321?

Question

Could you confirm if there is an opinion of permissibility on crabs as per your Fatwa # 18321?

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

We have been notified of a misconception which arouse from Fatwa number 18321 (http://askimam.org/fatwa/fatwa.php?askid=d04013b28a21924be02997357a7cff54).

The fatwa should have been worded differently. Although some contemporary scholars opine that a crab is fish and no consideration should be given to science, none of the classical scholars ever classified a crab as fish. There is a consensus amongst traditional scholars and hence, crabs will NOT be permissible according to the Hanafi madhab.

can you please confirm if eating crow is really halaal PDF Print E-mail

Q: 48 – Title: can you please confirm if eating crow is really halaal, as you’ve mentioned in fatwa# 18321?

Question

Assalamualaikum, can you please confirm if eating crow is really halaal, as you’ve mentioned in fatwa# 18321?

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

Due to the various species of crow, the fuqahaa have divided them up into three categories:

a) Crows that eat carrion only

b) Crows that eat crop, grains etc. only (no meat)

c) Crows that eat some of both

Category (a) is haraam to eat, while categories (b) and (c) are both permissible.

قال رحمه الله : ( وحل غراب الزرع ) لأنه يأكل الحب وليس من سباع الطير ولا من الخبائث قال رحمه الله : ( لا الأبقع - الذي يأكل الجيف - والضبع والضب والزنبور والسلحفاة والحشرات والحمر الأهلية والبغل ) يعني : هذه الأشياء لا تؤكل أما الغراب الأبقع فلأنه يأكل الجيف فصار كسباع الطير والغراب ثلاثة أنواع : نوع يأكل الجيف فحسب فإنه لا يؤكل ، ونوع يأكل الحب فحسب فإنه يؤكل ، ونوع يخلط بينهما وهو أيضا يؤكل عند الإمام وهو العقعق لأنه يأكل الدجاج وعن أبي يوسف أنه يكره أكله لأنه غالب أكله الجيف ، والأول أصح

(Al-Bahrul Raaiq, 8/172, Rashidiyyah)

قال في العناية : وأما الغراب الأبقع والأسود فهو أنواع ثلاثة : نوع يلتقط الحب ولا يأكل الجيف وليس بمكروه .

ونوع لا يأكل إلا الجيف وهو الذي سماه المصنف الأبقع وإنه مكروه .

ونوع يخلط يأكل الحب مرة والجيف أخرى ولم يذكره في الكتاب ، وهو غير مكروه عنده مكروه عند أبي يوسف ا هـ والأخير هو العقعق كما في المنح

(Raddul Muhtaar)

(Fatawa Mahmudiyyah, 18/221, Faruqiyyah)
