Are we allowed to eat shrimp according to the Hanafi Mazhab?
Assalaamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullaahi Wa Barakaatuhu
From seafood, only fish is made Halaal for us. Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, ‘Two carions are made Halaal for us; Fish and locust.’ (Mishkaat vol.2 pg.361). Fish is classified as a Vertebra.
Shrimps are not vertebras, hence, not permissible.
and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
