Blood clot in an egg

Q: Does the clot found in an egg have to be removed before consuming it?


A: We have not found a clear answer on this, however if a clot of blood comes out of a human being, then it is not regarded as impure. Hence based on this we will say that the cloth of blood found in an egg  will also not be impure though it should be removed before consuming the egg. Please refer this question to other Ulama’ as well.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

( و ) ينقضه ( دم ) مائع

قال الشامي: (قوله: مائع) احتراز عن العلق (رد المحتار 1/138)

ثم مالا يكون حدثا لا يكون نجسا (هداية 1/24)
