Eating meat

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Some sisters were having a conversation on the eating of meat. One sister commented that there is a hadeeth where the Prophet Muhammed sallallahu alahi wa salaam says: “Do not let your stomach become a graveyard for animals.” I have never heard of this hadeeth nor seen it anywhere. I once saw that Ali radhiyallahu anhu said that, otherwise no one can give clear proof.


A: We have not come across this in the authentic books of Hadith.

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