Crab, Oyster, Clam: Halal or Haram? Confused!
« on: September 06, 2018, 02:10:17 PM »
Need response. I considered crabs to be scavengers of the sea...I thought they all came to land and that made them haram. This turned out to be false. In middle eastern side, you will see crabs on land a lot, but not here. It is so rare that many people never came across one.

Same I believed to be true for oysters/clams.Beaches near me have none of them, but they are apparently caught from the water for food. Just a bit about the place:

1. These beaches are directly near the deeper side of the Pacific ocean. Waves seem overly violent.

2. Annually, you may see only one big ship.

3. Water sports aren't common because of this probably: https://res.cloudinary.com/simpleview/image/fetch/f_auto,q_75/http://MontereyCounty.simpleviewcrm.com/images/listings/original_Sanctuary-Cruises-hump_lunge.jpg

4. It feels as if the closest place specifically to our beach is..............................Japan   :rotfl:

Seriously, it feels a bit too lonely here.

5. Sand is free of shells. Try googling Del Monte Beach.

6. It is the most bizarre side of the world. This ocean keeps defying what we humans know by sometimes making "PUBLIC" extremely weird unnamed creatures. This place is used for marine biology.

But if the shellfish groups aren't coming to these beaches won't that make them halal?

I don't get why they would be haram if they're on the land?
I wouldn't eat weird creatures tho including shrimp because they're bottom feeders.

I'm not right sure about this but I eat all seafood whether it's mussels, squid, clams, lobster or octopus.

You are viewing the issue from a 'weird' angle...

Me too, I'm a seafood freak..

Having said that, I despised how they actually prepare the dishes, specifically lobster, they boiled them ALIVE!

Kudos to the Switz which has declared boiled alive lobster as HARAM!

Peace All.
I do not see anywhere in Qoran making eating of seafood that are not harmful to us haram.

Qoran says from the sea and rivers "Taakulun lahman Tarian..." you eat tender meats.
Qoran has specified the four types of food that we should not eat. Nothing else should be added by us.

Of course common sense dictates that all contaminated/bad food should not be consumed.
My opinion.
GOD bless you all.
Peace.
