Eating Meat Slaughtered By Shee’ah


The permanent committee of Saudi Arabia (comprising of Sh. ‘Abdul-Razzaaq Al-Afifi, Sh. ‘Abdullaah Ibn Ghudayaan & Sh. ‘Abdulaah Ibn Qa’ood) answered a question about eating the meat of the Ja’fari Shee’ah sect, about whom it is known that they call upon ‘Ali, Hasan and Husain during times of ease and hardship. They answered saying:

“All praise is due to Allaah and may Allaah praise the Prophet (saw) and render him safe from every derogatory thing. If the issue is as mentioned by the questioner, that there are people who adhere to the Ja’fari madhhab, and they call upon ‘Ali, Hasan and Husain, then they are polytheists who have apostatized fro Islaam. We seek refuge with Allaah from that. It is not lawful to eat of their slaughtered animals for it is considered “maitah” i.e. an unlawful animal. Even if the name of Allah is mentioned before it was slaughtered.”

And Shaykh ‘Abdur-Rahmaan Ibn Jibreen was asked a similar question to which he responded by saying:

“Wa ‘alaykum as-salaam wa rahmatUllaahi wa barakaatuh. The animal slaughtered by the Raafidh is not lawful for us, nor is it lawful to consume. The majority of the Raafidhah are polytheists, for they call upon ‘Ali in times of need, even during Arafah, the Taawaaf and Sa’ee. They call unto his children and their Imaams, as we have heard on numerous occasions. This is a form of greater shirk. It is also apostasy which one should be killed over.”
