Ruling on oysters


As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
Is it permissible to consume oysters?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

From the creatures of the sea, only fish is Halal. Any other seafood besides fish is impermissible for consumption.[1]

Oysters are not fish. Hence it is not permissible to consume oysters.
