What does the Quran tell about seafood such as mussels and shrimps and prawns?
‘‘For you and travellers the catch from the sea and its food are halal – permitted…’’ (Quran, al-Maida 5:96). The verse is about all sea creatures. Catch from the sea means food that is to be hunted and food you can get from sea without hunting. Therefore the Quran remarks that every kind of seafood is helal.
