Selling Non-Halal Meat to Non-Muslims

By Mufti Ebrahim Desai


Q.) Is it permissible for a Muslim to sell non-halal (haram) goat, cow or chicken to non-muslims? What does the shariah say about income from such a business? Everyone knows that selling pork or wine is not permisible but how about selling carrion? Please answer the question in the light of Fiqh. Jazak Allah.

A.) The meat from an animal not slaughtered according to the Shari'ah falls in the category of a carrion (dead animal) and is haram. It is not permissible to sell such meat. The income from such meat will be haram. And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.
