Is Drinking Your Own Blood Haram?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I wanted to inquire about the drinking of flowing blood being haraam! If a person checks his sugar, pokes bimself for the blood to be released and
thereafter sucks the remaining blood from his finger, is this constituted as haraam?


A: Yes. Blood is napaak.

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