Qirat in Salaah,Are prawns and squid specifically permissable or not to eat?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

1) When reciting quran in salat what is the minimum requirement on lines that must be recited, for example could i recite the first 10 lines of surah baqarah or ayat al kursi?

2) Are prawns and squid specifically permissible or not to eat? ย ( i have searched but still unsure)


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

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

1. The minimum amount of Qurโ€™an that must be recited during salaah is three short verses (which is equivalent to approximately thirty letters), one long verse or one surah. [1]ย 

2. According to the Hanafi Madhab, from the sea creatures, only that which falls under the category of โ€œsamakโ€ (commonly translated as fish) is permissible to consume.[2]

A squid is not considered to be in the category of fish. Hence, it is impermissible to eat squid in the Hanafi Madhab.

You may refer to the following fatwa regarding the issue of consuming prawns.
