Are Muslims Allowed to Eat Animal Meat That Still Alive? Read This!

Islamic Shariah On Website: Are Muslims Allowed to Eat Animal Meat That Still Alive? ~ In this article I will invite all of you to discuss issues that might rarely occur in our lives. For example, we have a cow. Then suddenly it appeared in our minds to eat the beef. The problem is, if we slaughter the cow then we will get too much danging, even though what we need is only a little, maybe two or three kilos. We also took the initiative to cut part of the body of the cow. What is the view of Islam about that?

As always, before I answer the above question and speak more about about are Muslims allowed to eat animal meat that still alive?, I will present a hadith of the Prophet Muhammad sallalla’hu alaihi wa sallam as follows;

عَنْ أَبِيْ وَاقِدٍ اللَّيْثِيِّ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : مَا قُطِعَ مِنَ الْبَهِيْمَةِ وَهِيَ حَيَّةٌ فَهُوَ مَيِّتٌ . أَخْرَجَهُ أَبُوْ دَاوُدَ وَالتِّرْمِذِيُّ

From Abu Waqid al-Laitsi radliyallahu anhu, he said, “The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said, “The body part of the animal that was cut into a feeding state became a carcass.” The hadith is narrated by Abu Daud and at-Tirmidhi.

Utilizing Skins of Animal Carcasses According to in Islam

There is a story that we need to consider in relation to the hadith above. At one time the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam came to Medina. There are some people who want to cut the tail of sheep and camel hump to be processed into food and lighting equipment. He then told them that the animal’s body parts that were cut alive were then carcasses, not to be eaten, not to be used for lighting, and also not to be sold and bought, because the act was categorized as torturing animals that we actually required be nice to them.

If we look at the hadith above, we will understand several things as follows;

One; The hadith prohibits us from hurting animals in any way, especially by cutting off the limbs.

Two; Animal body parts that are cut alive are carcasses that should not be eaten and are used for any purpose.

Three; Animal body parts that are cut alive are carcasses, even though they are animals that can be eaten after being slaughtered.

The person who narrated the hadith above is Abu Waqid al-Laitsi. He is Abu Waqid al-Harith bin ‘Auf al-Laitsi. He died in 68 hijria in Mecca when he was 85 years old.

To be honest, the information above reminds us of another hadith below;

عَنْ عَبْدِ اللهِ بْنِ عَمْرُو قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : الرَّاحِمُوْنَ يَرْحَمُهُمْ الرَّحْمَنُ , اِرْحَمُوْا مَنْ فِيْ الْأَرْضِ يَرْحَمُكُمْ مَنْ فِيْ السَّمَاءِ … أَخْرَجَهُ التِّرْمِذِيُّ (1924) وَأَبُوْ دَاوُدَ (4941

From Abdullah bin Amru, he said, “The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said, “Those who love will be loved by the One who loves (Allah). Love beings that are on earth, then you will be loved by beings in the sky…” The hadith is narrated by at-Timirdzi (1924) and Ibn Majah (4941).

Hopefully we can love creatures that are on earth! At least, if we can’t love them, may we not be among those who hurt them! Amen!

I think that is enough for this article about are Muslims allowed to eat animal meat that still alive?. May be useful! Amen!
