Question:

Is turkey meat halal or haram?

 

Answer:

In The Name Of Allah, The Most-Merciful, The Most Kind

 

Turkey meat, like any other poultry, is halal with no stated prohibition provided it is slaughtered in accordance with Islamic law (dhabiha). A Muslim is welcome to take advantage when there are perhaps cheaper prices for Turkey during the Christmas period. However, care must be taken that the intention is not to emulate non-muslims in their festivals as this would incur sin.
