Salaam brothers and sisters of shiachat!!

Are snails (escargots) or calamari (octopus)haram? Just curious.. does anyone know? I know shellfish has been discussed on shiachat before and I think they are haram right? And we can only eat fish with scales?… but escargots (snails) are on land and calamari (octopus) is in sea..soooo anyone know?

Thanks for replies… just incase I’m offered any I wanted to know!!

Wasalaam, Janaan

Sis Trin, I'm pretty sure they are not permissible. (let's go search for the fatwa! :D)

Speaking of calamari..one time I was at a restaurant and I saw it and I thought they were ONION RINGS because they are round like in the picture above and I almost started to put them in my plate when one of my non-Muslim friends goes "Thamina, that's squid!!".

:o That was close!

Salaam alaikum,

The only sea creatures we can eat are fish with scales and shrimp.

Sayyid Seestani: A Code of Practice for Muslims in the West

163. In order for fish to become permissible for a Muslim, it must have the following conditions:

Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã The fish must have scales on it. [That is, it should not be a skin fish.]
(B) The Muslim should be certain or satisfied that the fish has come out of the water alive or that it died while it was already in the fishing net.

It is not necessary for the fisherman to be a Muslim or to utter the name of Allãh for the fish to become halãl. So, if a non-Muslim catches a fish and brings it alive from the water or it dies after getting caught in his fishing net or fishing line, and it has scales on it, it is permissible to eat.
A Muslim can ascertain the first condition by examining the fish if it is being displayed or by observing its name [which can tell you whether it is a skin fish or a scale fish] as long as you can trust the authenticity of the label. A list of scale fish has been appended at the end of this book.
The second condition is fulfilled in almost all the countries, as they say, because the universal method in fishing ensures that the fish comes out of the water alive or they die after they are caught in the fishing net. Based on this, it is permissible to eat the fish that one gets from a non-Muslim just as one gets from a Muslim, irrespective of whether it is canned or uncanned. (See the question-answer section below.)


164. It is permissible to eat shrimps, if they are brought out of the water alive. It is forbidden to eat frogs, lobsters, turtles, every amphibious animal, snails, and crayfish. (See the question-answer section below.)

WaSalaam, Hajar
