Is Squid Halal?

Fatwa ID: 03685

Answered by: Maulana Selim Saldiran




Is squid halal? Why or why not?


بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful





It is not permissible to eat squid because the only seafood that is halal according to the Hanafi school, is fish (Samak).[1]

Squid is not considered fish and therefore it is not permissible to eat.



Only Allah knows best
