Eating the testis of an animal

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Is eating testis of an animal haram? If yes, then what is the evidence from the Quran to consider it as haram. According to fiqh rule to consider it haram, there must be evidence from the Quran or from weak hadith. If it is haram then why is it being sold in Muslim countries? If you consider it as haram then smoking cigarettes is also haram and you should cease the fight and accept Saudi’s Ulema as correct.

If people eat it, will their prayers not be accepted?


A: Yes.

Everything that happens in a Muslim country does not have to be correct. It is not an evidence to be halaal if it is sold or available in a Muslim country.

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