Jamia Nizamia issued Sensational Fatwa: Don’t eat Prawns



Prawns 1

Prawns always have a special place among the non-vegetarian food items. A Hyderabad-based Islamic seminary has raised a curtain for a new controversy asking Muslims not to eat prawns. Jamia Nizamia a Hyderabad-based 142-year-old Islamic seminary has issued a Fatwa against eating Prawns and asking Muslims not to eat prawns.

As per the reports, the fatwa was introduced by the Chief Mufti of Jamia Nizamia, Mufti Mohammed Azeemuddin.

According to the Fatwa, the Prawns do not belong to the class of the fish and they belong to the category of arthropod. They said consumption of Prawns is a sin in Islam. Mufti Mohammed Azeemuddin considered prawns, crabs and shrimps as ‘Makruh Tahrim’ for Muslims.

The Jamia Nizamia was established in 1876. It is one of the oldest Islamic deemed university in the country. As per the Islamic law, the food is divided into three categories they are halal (acceptable), haram ( prohibited) and  Makruh (abominable). According to the Fatwa, Prawn is an arthropod and it is not under the category of fish. The chief mufti said the prawn is under the category of  ‘Makruh Tahrim’.

As per TOI, the third category Makruh is sub-divided into makruh (abominable but can be eaten) and makruh Tahrim (abominable and should be avoided completely). So they kept prawn under this category called Makruh Tahrim’. But some Muslim groups are not welcoming the Fatwa made by the Jamia Nizamia. Some Muslims amazed regarding consideration of Prawns as an abominable or despicable food.”

This is not the first time the Jamia Nizamia had also made a Fatwa in 2016 against chanting ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’, as it symbolised a goddess, which Muslims cannot worship. The Jamia Nizamia had said that the slogan was un-Islamic.

Mufti Merajuddin Abrar, principal of Islamic school Anwarul Huda, said, though it is not under the category of fish people who eat prawn do not equate it with an insect. Thus it cannot be an abominable food.

The journey of this is taking me out of the country, and I request everyone to continue sending their wishes. As of the rumours that were floated NEURO is not always about the brain and googling is the easiest way to do research.  To those who waited for my words, I hope to be back with more stories to tell.”

Irrfan Khan tweeted on March 5 “Sometimes you wake up with a jolt with life-shaking you up. The last fifteen days, my life has been a suspense story. Little had I known that my search for rare stories would make me find a rare disease,” I have never given up and have always fought for my choices and always will.

My family and friends are with me and we are working it out the best way possible. In trying time, please don’t speculate as I will myself share with you my story within a week – ten days when the further investigations come with a conclusive diagnosis. Till then wish the best for me.
