Ask Imam

A real question from Ask Imam:

Assalamualaikum, can you please confirm if eating crow is really halaal, as you've mentioned in fatwa# 18321?

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

Due to the various species of crow, the fuqahaa have divided them up into three categories:

a) Crows that eat carrion only

b) Crows that eat crop, grains etc. only (no meat)

c) Crows that eat some of both

Category (a) is haraam to eat, while categories (b) and (c) are both permissible.

Add a pinch of salt to taste, and bake in a pie.

What's next?  Something worse than a murder of crows? Two and seventy virgins baked in a Caravan Serai?
