Question

My question is whether we can eat the following or not:

Prawns

Crabs

Oysters

Rabbit

Lobster

 

Answer

Muhtaram / Muhtaramah

In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.

 

According to the Hanafi madhab, only fish from the sea are permissible. Accordingly, prawns, crabs, oysters and lobsters are not permissible as they are not fish.

 

It is permissible to consume rabbit.

And Allah knows best
