I see this list has been derived from a Jewish site.

according to Shia fiqh, just as in Jewish law the fish must have scales. I notice eels have been included as Haram. Eels have microscales and i know some Jewish Rabbis have now agreed that this is Kosher. As such eels could be considered halaal according to shia fiqh.

The only counter argument to this being that the eel looks 'abominable'

if the scales are "micro" then they can't be seen with the naked eye right? i doubt it is allowed in Shi'i Fiqh but that is why we have Maraaji'. Ask your Marja' if it is allowed.

Salaamun alaykum,

The reply to the following question on the 'Prohibition of certain

type of seafood in the Ja`fari School of thought' was kindly provided by

Sayyid Muhammad Rizvi. In his reply, Moulana Rizvi discusses the basis

of this prohibition from the Qur'an and Ahadith, and how this differs

from the other sects in Islam.

Wasalaam,

laws that the Sunni do not recognize. Specifically, the restriction on

seafood with the exception of fish with scales and shrimp. She has asked

in the following message, for a (Shia) scholar's interpretation, of why

others are considered haram. I would like, if possible, to address the

answer in terms of hadith that are available, Qur'anic verses, etc. So

that I may show her the sources. Thank you in advance.

ANSWER:

1. The Sources of Islamic Laws:

We must first of all define the sources of Islamic laws. According to all

Muslims, Shi`as and Sunnis alike, the laws of Islam are not only derived

from the Qur'an. The Qur'an, being the word of Allah, is the foundation; but

one cannot, under any circumstances, ignore the sunnah of the Prophet and

Imams. Not only that; many times, the Qur'anic verses themselves have to be

understood in the light of the explanation given by the Prophet and the Imams.

2. Verse 5:99

Most of the Sunni schools of fiqh allow most of the sea food. The Shi`a

school, on the other hand, allows only the scale-fish, prawns and shrimps.

Many people like to quote verse no. 5:99 about sea food. It says:

"Allowed for you is the GAME OF THE SEA AND ITS FOOD, as a provision for you

and for the travellers." They conclude that based on this verse all sea food

should be allowed.

First of all, you have to look at the context of the verse. It was revealed

as part of the rules explaining the restrictions on a person who is in ihram

(the pilgrim's garment) during the pilgrimage. The whole passages reads as

follows:

"O you who believe!

"Do not kill the game while you are in the pilgrim garb. And whosoever among

you kills it intentionally, then the compensation of it is that the like of

what he killed from the cattle as adjudged by two just men from among you.

[This compensation is] an offering to be brought to the Ka`ba, or the

expiation of it is the feeding of the poor or the equivalent of it in

fasting so that he may taste the heinousness of his deed.

God has pardoned what is gone by; and whoever returns to it, then God will

exact penalty from him, and God is Mighty, Lord of Retribution."

After this prohibition about killing the game, the next verse says:

"ALLOWED for you is the GAME OF THE SEA AND ITS FOOD, as a provision for you

and for the travellers; and FORBIDDEN for you is the GAME OF THE LAND so

long as you are in the pilgrim garb; and fear God unto whom you shall be

gathered."

What this verse is saying is that

"the game of the sea and its food" is allowed to the pilgrims

even when they are in the state of ihram;

whereas the "game of the land" is haram

as long as they are in the state of ihram.

This verse is not defining what is the permissible "food" from the game of

sea. It is just saying that whatever was allowed (in case of sea food) is

also allowed in ihram, and that whatever was allowed (in case of the game of

land) is not permissible in ihram.

If the verse is saying that all kinds of the "game of sea and its food" is

permissible, then what would one say about the next sentence---Would all

kind of land animals be allowed after the pilgrim is out of ihram?! No one

takes the expression in the second sentence "the game of the land" as a

blanket approval for all land animals. Similarly, no one should take the

expression in the first sentence "the game of sea and its food" as a blanket

approval for all sea animals.

Moreover, the words "the game of sea and ITS FOOD" show that not every

"game/catch of sea" is food; otherwise, there was no need to add the words

"and its food" in this sentence. It would mean that you are allowed to catch

many things from the sea but only "its food" is permissible for you to eat.

3. Halal Sea Food

So how do we find out what is the permissible "food" from the sea?

The second source of the shari`ah, i.e., the sunnah of the Prophet and the

Imams, has clarified for us the sea food which is halal for us. It says that

the scale-fish, prawns and shrimps are allowed; and everything else is

haram. (This is not the place to prove that the sunnah of the Imams of Ahlul

Bayt is an extension of the sunnah of the Prophet. Those who like to read on

this can refer to my "AN INTRODUCTION TO THE ISLAMIC SHARI`AH".)

Shaykh Hurr al-`Amili, for example, quotes ahadith which indicate that Imam

`Ali (a.s.) used to go around the fish market of Kufa and announce that "do

not eat or sell the fish that does not have scales". (Wasailu 'sh-Shi`ah,

vol. 16, 329-330) Other statements from the fifth and sixth Shi`a Imams

clearly forbid the eating of a fish which does not have scales. (Ibid) On

the issue of shrimps and prawns, there are quite a few ahadith in Wasa'ilu

'sh-Shi`a, vol. 16 pp. 337 to 339. For example, Imam Musa al-Kazim (a.s.)

was asked about eating shrimps, he said: "There is no problem in it; and

shrimp is a kind of fish." Similar ahadith have been narrated from Imam Riza

(a.s.) also.

In short, the sea food that is allowed to us is as follows:

1. scale fish;

2. shrimp and prawns.

Any non-fish sea animal and any fish which has no scales is not allowed. So

crab, shell-fish and other animals are haram in the Ja`fari fiqh.

(The case of lobster is still undecided because of ambiguity in its

classification: is it a shrimp just bigger in size, or is it a different kind

of sea animal? Therefore, it is better to refrain from lobster until the

issue is settled.)

It might be of interest to note that the Shi`as are not unique or alone on

the ruling about scale fish and skin fish. Even the dietery laws in the

present version of Torah (Old Testament) says the same about non-scale fish.

It says: "Whatsoever hath fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in

the rivers, them shall ye eat. And all that have no fins and scales in the

seas, and in the rivers, of all that moves in the waters, and of any living

thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you...ye

shall not eat of their flesh..." (Lev. 11:9-12)

I hope this clarifies the Shi`a Ja`fari point of view on sea food as well as

the verse mentioned in the question.

if the scales are "micro" then they can't be seen with the naked eye right? i doubt it is allowed in Shi'i Fiqh but that is why we have Maraaji'. Ask your Marja' if it is allowed.

see http://www.al-islam.org/organizations/aali...k/msg00283.html

Salaamun alaykum,

The reply to the following question on the 'Prohibition of certain

type of seafood in the Ja`fari School of thought' was kindly provided by

Sayyid Muhammad Rizvi. In his reply, Moulana Rizvi discusses the basis

of this prohibition from the Qur'an and Ahadith, and how this differs

from the other sects in Islam.

If any animal is a predator, it is haraam for us. A predator is a host for harmful bacteria that are then passed onto the consumer. This is regardless whether animal is a land animal or sea animal.

Brothers/Sisters, Sorry for not being not so clear in my question. I am not questioning the Ihkaam (order) and I don’t believe that every order in Islam needs our clarification. If Ulema start giving us clarification for every fatwa or every order then the work of our religion will hault.

What I meant: why Allah (SWT) has forbidden only skin-fish for us?

I heard following two reasons, but they are not from reliable sources.

1) skin fishes are homo-sexuals,

2) there was a nation who disobeyed Allah (SWT) and Allah, in order to punish them for their disobedience, turned them into fishes.

Something like that. I am not sure.

I dont know about the first reason but the second reason is false. There is no truth to that since Allah puts insaan's bioloigical connection to only apes and swines in 5.60.

This is ridiculous. I have caught, boiled, and eaten fresh crabs hundreds of times in my life. Why do you believe this stuff? Crabs are fine for you, the only downside I can think of is that you have to eat a lot of them to get full, so it can encourage gluttony.

Why dont you google the keywords crabs and trematodes. Where you catch the crabs is also relevant. The cleaner the water the better but it doesnt negate tthe fact that the parasites that a crab ingests will pass on to you.

At this junction, the parasite sitting in you remains either dormant or its kicks in. I have no idea what triggers it into action.

That's fine and all, but every food has the potential to help or hurt you. Insinuating that a Vietnamese fishing village got sick because of some crabs, and voila, it's an sign from Allah that crabs are intrinsically haram is ludicrous and unreasonable. Every animal that you eat can hurt you or harm you based on its original location and its conditions, the method of slaughter (how it's caught, if it's killed properly, if it's cleaned properly, etc.), the method of cooking, and the manner of consumption. Every animal, due to their nature, and especially today with environmental intoxicants whatnot, will have some disease or microbe or whatever else you want to dig up on Google. Halal animals, haram animals, whatever, at the end of the day it's still an animal and there are risks in consuming it. Sometimes the risks are greater, sometimes they're lesser, you can just try to ensure that what you put in your mouth and how you eat it will benefit you.

Imam Hussain (as) in his very last sermon (after everyone reached "The Shahadat" ) which he gave on the back of the Camel to the Yazid Army said after no one replied his call "I know why you are not responding to my call. Your stomachs are filled with Haraam".

The most important thing about what food one puts in his/her mouth is not "beneficial", but it should be "halal".

The thumb rule on the sign of Allah vis-av-vis dietary laws is that you cannot eat any animal that is a predator/scavenger be it land or sea. Owing to the parasites/bacteria that become hamful to you.

When its comes land animals that ungulates, we are allowed only even toed ungulates not odd toed ungilates like horses and zebras etc. The diference between the 2 is the digestive systems.

But that Religious driven dietary laws have value in human health is without doubt. Check out this site

If what is apparent of the qur2anic verses was the only way to infer things without referring to the infallibles, then Islam would be one messed-up religion (as it is with so many people today following "versions" of Islam).

There are around twelve or thirteen animal/bird/mammal species that are consistently quoted by the ma3sumeen (as) as having been humans that were transformed (maskh). Among them are EELS and off the top of my head, the elephant, rabbits and bats. I could look up the traditions and quote the other creatures as also the reasons given by the purified ones (as).

^ A7adith of Ahl al Bayt (as) record various human beings in the course of history as having been transformed into creatures, their resemblances seen in the creatures existing today.

Masookh:

1) elephant - a king, who was a fornicator/adulterer and sodomite, and would not leave a single thing, neither wet nor dry (referring to bestiality)

2) bear - a man who would invite men to commit sodomy with him

3) rabbit - a woman, who was disloyal to her husband and would neither take ghusl for 7aydz, nor janabah, nor any other ghusl

4) bat - a man who would steal dates from people

5) suhayl (?) - a man who would demand a tenth of people's wages in Yemen and would cheat on the weighing scale

6) zahrah (?) - a woman (a queen) who had forcibly embroiled Harut and Marut in corruption

7) pig - a tribe of Christians who demanded food from the heavens but increased in disbelief and belying the signs after Allah sent it down for them

8) monkey (ape) - a nation of Bani Israel who transgressed the limits on Saturday

9) eel - a slanderer (and in other a7adith, one who invited people to commit sodomy with him)

10) dzubb (?) - he would steal from the 7ajj/ he would kill whoever passed by him

11) scorpion - a man who would always be looking for people's defects and backbit about them; none was safe from him

12) zambur (?) - he would dupe people on the weighing-scale

13) spider - a woman who would use magic on her husband/ a woman who was disobedient to her husband

14) da3moos (water-worm) - a backbiter who would cause a split between two friends/ an adulterer/ fornicator and who also committed bestiality

There might be slight variations in who was transformed into what. If you know Arabic, the source is 3ilal al sharaa2i3 of Shaikh Saduq available online at alseraj.net.

To clarify though, Shaykh Saduq (ra) explains in that same work that today's animals referred to as "masookh" are not literally the descendants of those who were punished by this. Rather, they would die after three days and not had offspring. The animals of today are however referred to as masookh, and are haram to eat, serving as examples and reminders of the punished.

I've bolded part of the clarification I was referring to (though the bolding didn't quite catch all the letters correctly). I suspect that "sallallahu `alayhi wa alihi" around the end after "kama qala Allahu ta`ala" is a mistake in transcription or something, but I'm at work and don't have my copy of the book next to me.

Thank you for the clarification; I had mentioned, though, that the creatures today are resemblances of the ones the humans had metamorphosed into.

About the supposed "blunder" it is actually a word that is missing- linabiyyihi- which is causing the confusion.

Would you happen to know the English equivalent of da3moos and any guesses which waters the other two creatures (suhayl and zahrah) dwelling in, might the tradition be referring to? (I believe a lot of people would first-guess the Bermuda Triangle :unsure: ) And which could these two creatures possibly be?

Update:

I checked with Maulana Sayyid Mohammad Rizvi last week and he said that the write which a brother has posted in this thread is old. Every aspect of that article will remain intact accept the lobster issue. Now it is determined that lobster/crab is not allowed.

There are around twelve or thirteen animal/bird/mammal species that are consistently quoted by the ma3sumeen (as) as having been humans that were transformed (maskh). Among them are EELS and off the top of my head, the elephant, rabbits and bats. I could look up the traditions and quote the other creatures as also the reasons given by the purified ones (as).

Salaams

I am sorry, I completely forgot this discussion.

My only question to you is if the information cannot be scientifically verified as true, does this mean that science is wrong or the information allegedly from the masoomeen?

And yes, if you are still following the discussion, I would like the list if you dont mind.

salaams

^ when you say the rule of thumb is that if an animal is a predator it is haram..... how come chicken is halal when they eat worms, bugs spiders and even each other?

Salaams

Must be your chickens. Ours dont have such a problem. No No I am serious.

If you look at things like bird flu or salmonella, do you think they come about just by fluke or bad farming practises?

Wa 3alaykum salam

How easy it is for you to dismiss the a7adith!

Anyway, it seems you have skipped the rest of the posts. Please venture beyond the post quoted; you have the answer to both your question and your request.

As to the question posed, have scientists (not science - science is wholly compatible with Islam) found the transformation of humans into apes and swines to be true? I thought a "theory" suggested otherwise for one of the species! :dry:

And I won't be surprised if they came up with claims that we have descended from pigs either, considering the success rate of heart and liver transplants from those beings.

:dry:

Edited to add:

From the list, dzubb refers to the lizard and zambur to the wasp/ hornet

1 - Yes sorry thank you I have the list.

2 - As to the question posed, have scientists (not science - science is wholly compatible with Islam) found the transformation of humans into apes and swines to be true? I thought a "theory" suggested otherwise for one of the species!

3 - And I won't be surprised if they came up with claims that we have descended from pigs either, considering the success rate of heart and liver transplants from those beings.

1 - I would easily dismiss a hadith if it defies conventional testable wisdom but would provisionally accept is there is no oeverwhelming empirical evidence against it. I have seen the list and disagree with you.

For example from the list provided, it does not imply that these animals have a biological connection to man. Its just taking human characteristics and connecting the similarity to specific animals. There is no indication that these animals are biologically connected to man. Lets take one example of the ape and bani israel.

If the Bani Israel came into existence of the creation of the ape, then common sense rules out the link between the two. The Bani Israel's existence would have to precede the existence of the ape for the transformation to take place. But that would be your burden to make.

2 - Scientists have found the connection between man and pig but they do not know how this happened. So obviously neither the theory of evolution nor the doctrine of natural selection are working for them in this regard.

3 - lol c - they cant do that. Let me append a link for you so that you understand.

http://www.aces.uiuc.edu/Discover/discover37.cfm

They do see the link between the 2 species is helpful in medicine but only in time when they see the how the connection between 2 was made when they will realise that using pig parts for surgery will make matters worse for the humans.
