Islamic Views On Eating Snakes, Cats And Dogs. by balash(m): 11:20am On Jul 13, 2017
Salaam Alaikum Waramotulai Wabarakatuh

Few days ago I witnessed a topic on Frontpage of a man who was so happy and displayed roasted cat head with Eba so graciously about to eat and when he finished devouring it, This brings about this Topic to every muslim in case you don't know the rulings about eating them.

It is not permissible to eat dogs or cat, or to give them to people who will eat them, because it is haraam to eat them or to help anyone else to eat them. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Every animal that has fangs is haraam.” (Reported by Muslim from the hadeeth of Abu Hurayrah, may Allaah be pleased with him). According to a hadeeth narrated by Abu Tha’labah al-Khashani (may Allaah be pleased with him), “the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) forbade the eating of every carnivorous animal that has fangs.” (Agreed upon). Dogs and Cats are carnivores that have fangs. You have to repent to Allaah if you have tried eating them unknowingly and Allaah is the All-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

And about snakes

The person who grills a snake then eats it has obeyed the Shaytaan. There is something in it which is inherently devilish and something which is connected to the shaytaateen (devils); it is like riding beast for them or something like that. Whoever mixes a snakes flesh with his/ her flesh [by eating it] should be avoided because of that. 

May Almighty Allah Forgive US Our Shortcomings and grant our wishes in the ways of the Ummah.

Al-Nawawi said: 

According to the scholars, the vermin of the earth such as snakes, scorpions, dung beetles, cockroaches, rats etc., are haraam. This is the view of Abu Haneefah, Ahmad and Dawood. 

Al-Shaafa’i and his companions quote as evidence for that the aayah, 

“and prohibits them as unlawful Al-Khabaa’ith (i.e. all evil and unlawful as regards things, deeds, beliefs, persons and foods),”

[al-A’raaf 7:157 – interpretation of the meaning] 

These are things which the Arabs find repulsive. And they quote as evidence the words of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him): “(There are) five animals, all of which are evil and should be killed in the Haram (sanctuary of Makkah): crows, kites [a kind of bird], scorpions, rats and vicious dogs.” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari and Muslim from the report of ‘Aa’ishah, Hafsah and Ibn ‘Umar). It was narrated from Umm Shurayk that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) commanded the killing of lizards. (Narrated by al-Bukhaari and Muslim). With regard to the aayah (interpretation of the meaning): 

“Say (O Muhammad): ‘I find not in that which has been revealed to me anything forbidden to be eaten by one who wishes to eat it, unless it be Maytah (a dead animal) or blood poured forth (by slaughtering or the like), or the flesh of swine (pork); for that surely, is impure or impious (unlawful) meat (of an animal) which is slaughtered as a sacrifice for others than Allaah (or has been slaughtered for idols, or on which Allaah’s Name has not been mentioned while slaughtering).” [al-An’aam 6:145] 

al-Shaafa’i and other scholars said: what this refers to is things which you used to eat and regard as good. Al-Shaafa’i said: this is the most likely meaning of the aayah, based on the Sunnah. And Allaah knows best.

Eating snake is also haram. It has fang too and feeds on other animals.

I still can't find dogs or cats in the provision above. The hadith referred to vicious dogs within the sanctuary of Makkah and never mentioned cats. The Quran has made no reference to dogs or cats. Your submission requires more authoritoes.

Islam grew more populace in the Arab countries, that's more like why I made the reference, Islam is one and we don't do anything differently except were we find it liable for deliberations, and animals with fangs are all classified under what I wrote up there?

Dogs have fangs so does cats, I don't understand the detailed explanation u still need from that. And please those hadith are the Prophets proof and not mine.

You should argue with evidence also because as you know in Islam we deliberate and argue only with evidence.

You can always counter my claims on there with proof my sister, am just human like u and bound to make mistakes and am ready to learn. Please enlightening us further is not a bad idea

I was born a Muslim. I went to an Islamic school, graduated and even furthered my studies in the Islamic line. I was a devoted Muslim.
But truth be told, Islam, I must say, is full of poo. Yes! I said it. In Islam, it's Haram to touch the hair of people with this dreadlock like hair usually called DADA among the natives. Still, the Allah they believe created this DADA .
How can you tell me not to eat a snake, a cat or whatever?
When I was a Muslim, I did good because of a reward, I believe every Muslim does good because of a reward. Now that I've given up religion, I do good for the sake of good, not expecting anything from Some Allah at the other end.
There are too many rules in Islam and too much laws to abide to. If ChristIans and Muslims are going to end up in the same heaven, then I think it's totally unfair. As a Muslim, you have to do lots of things to get there, but as a Christian, all you have to do is believe in Jesus and live a good life.
Islam, I repeat, is full of poo! Can't believe I wasted 16 years of my life being a Muslim, the thought of that hurts and aggravates me


May Allah forgive you for your known and unknown sin. I don't fault any of your uprightness, I know people like you who couldn't be patient for Allah's decision but more eager with 'Igbala' fast fast they give u over there.

May Allah ease your affairs and grant you all your wishes and May he grant u the fortitude to at least submit to Shahada before you go to meet your lord because my brother. Darkness after light is really a vicious disease

What is lawful is clear and what is prohibited is clear. Don't eat swine, carnivorous animals, animal with fangs. we have many bush meats, chickens, rams and cows and many other Halaal meat to eat. cat is not even up-to Goat meat nor snake better than Chicken

Subhanallahi. you have to click yes I am a Muslim and believe in shahada just to comment and you did all that just to say things u don't understand. If you truly went to Islamic school and you understood what they taught then, you wouldn't have this issue with Islam. it's never Haram to touch dreadlocks, but to have dreadlocks is Haram cus you wouldn't be able to perform solat cus no ablution possible with dreadlock hair. Allah created us in different nation, with different looks and behavior but he never created Dreadlocks. They're human made. Almost all baby has his hair roughly woven from birth that why Islam asked us to shave a baby's hair before the seventh day. No child ever born with DADA
if I may ask you, why does having DADA null a person's ability to perform salat?

Islam is one but it is not about Arabs. Don't make such reference please


I don't see anywhere in your authorities where ‘fang' was mentioned. Neither the Quran nor the hadith mentioned fangs.


You are the one making a claim, it is up to you to prove it. What I did was to point out holes in your authorities.

Anyways, God knows best.

listen to yourself...
You and I know not all dreads are unkempt, so your assertion is ruled out .
Before coming of Islam, men of God were mostly dirty peoplewhom lived in caves. Do you wanna tell me God required that they were clean before praying to him?

salam alaekum bro, may be you should expatiate how it does annul salat, how does not cutting your hair out of any other reason apart from leaving it to honour a diety, which may be considered shrik, makes one unclean, please do this with reference from Quran, sound hadith or fatwa from rightly guided ullamas.
