Is it permissible to be a vegan in Shariah?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

Assalamu alykkum,

Are we allowed to be vegans or pure vegeterians? Is this considered to less in iman if one wants to be either vegan or vegeterian? Are there any compulsory amaal that could not be performed in this case?

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salฤmu โ€˜alaykum wa-rahmatullฤhi wa-barakฤtuh.

It is permissible to be a vegan or vegetarian. This will not cause a personโ€™s Deen any harm provided that he does not believe meat to be haraam.[1]

And Allah Taโ€™ฤla Knows Best
