Prawns are Khilaf-al-awla. i.e. there is doubt in them so they should not be eaten. Even if you find opinions which state otherwise it still does not remove the doubt as others scholars have expressed thier doubt in them which means there will always be doubt (shak) in prawns.

According to Hanafi Nisab Ahle Kudmate Sharia if some one considered it as a fish then it is Halal for them but if some one considered it as not a fish then they considered it as Mukhruhe tarhami (close to Haram).

Brother Muhammad Ahsan Jamil... whatever smites you within yourself should be regarded as a sin... This is philosophy of 'doubt' in any matter - be it with the food one eats, or the imaam one performs his Salaah behind. If there is doubt, abstain.

I have been told that prawns ae halal once the black vein is removed. Any ideas what this means? Personally I don'/t eat them because I dont like the look of them but I know many muslims do eat them.

I do not eat prawns; prawns eat flesh that include insects, worms, fish, feces of fish they even eat each other so they are meat eating creatures (this is a biological fact) & all meat eating animals are haram for example shark is haram as it eats meat (they are not fish this is also a biological fact as they belong to phylum arthopoda/subphylum crustacea further more fish are vertebrates they are invertebrate so even a high school student knows that they are not fish). But even if you classify prawns even as fish they should not be halal as they eat meat (shark is haram prena is haram). Although I,am not a mufty but I,am so sure that they are haram that I think that Islamic governments should prohibit their maketing. Nevertheless until an established mufti presents a futwa they should be cosidered as either mushtaba or makroohe tehrimi at least; in both cases do not eat them you have many other things to eat. Wasalam.

Assalam O Alaikum

If you follow Hanafi fiqa strictly and knew the fact that it is Mukrooh, then it becomes the question of Taqwa. Taqwa has several levels or degree, since it is close to Haram according Hanafi Muzhab and scientifically it can not be considered as fish. Beside you also have other choices such as vegetables and other Halal foods to eat, then again it depend upon how you can fight your nafs or appettite for prawn. It is all about Taqwa.

This sounds dumb but here goes. So are crisp which have Flavouring, like Umar Sajid said, are they eatable, like beef flavoured crisps etc. because its a "flavour" or is it TOTALLY haram, and what is Flavour? is it just someone decided to name the crisp, or is it what is in their thanks, Allah Hafiz

Fiqah's rulings are not dumb and in future you have to use good words to express your opposite views. I was attempting to explain about taqwa regarding eating only Halal foods. If you disagree then say so in nice words.

Assalam O Alaikum Br. Shar,

I am glad you clarify it because it sounds like you saying about fiqah. I just brought it from a fiqah book for gaining knowledge about it.

flavourings do not necc contain the active ingredients from the actual product in question. However the issue stands that just because the flavouring is not "prawn" it does not mean that the flavouring is halal - it may be made from something else which is haram, therefore you need to check carefully.

best to stick to fresh fruit and veg, and meat from halaal butchers bro..... cut out all that processed stuff, it can be good for you anyway

lol

salam brothers, i wud jus like to say why eat something u r not sure abt neway, i mean if they are many views from the scholars stay away, has Allah not blessed us with other fish and many other foods, we are bickering over fish such as prawns , when Our Beloved Nabi Kareem had to eat and live on a single date for months. n he did not once complain, his purest family prefered knowlege over food.
life is a long journey, travel well n u'll reach home(junnah), astray along the path n u'll get lost forever.

Very simply it is allowed. However, the Hanafis consider it disliked, while in the Shafi'i madhhab it is 100% permissable and not even disliked.
