Answered by: Maulana Yusuf Khan
Is oyster halal and what about fish and seafood?
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Sea creatures which are termed as fish ‘samak’ are permissible to consume. Oysters, crabs, etc are not classified as fish hence they are haram.
Only Allah knows best
