Al-Azhar textbook: Eating dead Jews, Christians and infidels ‘halal’ if necessary

 

Religious jurisprudence textbooks for Al-Azhar students address, among other things, the issue of eating dead human beings, quoting Mansour bin Yunus al-Bahuti, a scholar of the Hanbali school of jurisprudence who died 500 years ago, as saying that eating dead Jews, Christians and non-believers is halal (permissible by Islam) if it is a necessity, but non-Muslims are not to eat dead Muslims, even out of necessity.

 

Another textbook quotes Imam al-Sherbini of the Shafi school of jurisprudence as saying that dead prophets of any religion should not be eaten. And when he was told that prophets do not die and that they lie alive praying in their graves according to the Hadith, he said that he meant if they were found dead before they were buried.

 

He also clarified that the meat of dead Jews, Christians and infidels should be eaten raw, not cooked or grilled.

 

Other Al-Azhar textbooks say that eating dead Jews, Christians and non-believers can be allowed not only out of necessity, but also as a punishment for heresy.

 

In the book “Persuasion in Resolving the Words of Abi Shoga” that takes after the Shafi school of jurisprudence, the author says a Muslim warrior may kill and eat infidel men, women and children if they were not warriors themselves. 

 

But bin Abdel Salam recommends eating warrior adults and leaving warrior children for their economic value as slaves. 

 

The chapter about food in the Hanbali book “Al-Rawd Al-Moraba Fi Sharh Zad Al-Mustaqni” for the secondary Al-Azhar schools says the Prophet allowed the eating of a hyena and a horse, which the Hanafi and Maliki schools of jurisprudence disagreed with.

 

The author also allowed the eating of peacocks, parrots, crows, locusts and water creatures, except frogs, crocodiles and eels. Whales may be eaten, he said, except their liver and their spleen. He also forbade the eating or grilling of live fish.

 

In the chapter about what is permissible to eat, the book “Al-Sharh al Saghir” for Ahmed Dardir, which explains the Maliki school of jurisprudence, says it is not permissible to eat wild game hunted by a Muslim and an infidel together, or anything slaughtered by a Christian or a Jew.

 

The book permits eating a giraffe and forbids eating pork. It says a Muslim may eat a dead human being out of necessity, but not eat pork or wild game that was hunted by a non-believer.

Salaams,

 

If I get eaten raw by these crazies for having committed the unforgivable sins of eating frogs, eels and crocodiles (all of which are excellent if prepared properly, btw), I hope they get some really nasty diseases/food poisoning...
