I have recently been researching into what seafood are allowed and what are not. Currently I have found out that Crabs and such crustaceans that survive on land may not be and fish are. My question is what is the Hanafi ruling on the matter of prawns, squids and other such vermin of the oceans. I have been told that it’s down to my opinion whether they are fish or not but I was hoping for a Hanafi ruling on the matter. Thank you.
wa `alaykum salam,
Please see Seafood in Hanafi Madhab.
