Koe | 222 comments Religion, or so it is said, helps us make moral judgments. So it seems like a natural place to turn to for the question of eating mermaids.

Islam says they are permissible to eat.
Does anyone know what the other religions say on this obviously important issue.


http://www.islam-qa.com/en/ref/103991...

Many of the fuqaha’ mentioned mermaids and differed on the ruling concerning them. Some of them said that they are permissible (to eat) because of the general meaning of the evidence which says that whatever is in the sea is permissible. This is the view of the Shaafa’is and Hanbalis, and is the view of most of the Maalikis and of Ibn Hazm and others. And some of them regarded it as haraam because it is not a kind of fish. This is the view of the Hanafis and of al-Layth ibn Sa’d.

Sheeky (sheekster) Mermaids are real?


message 4: by Koe (new)

Koe | 222 comments Apparently they are supported by Islamic research.

The widespread notion in ancient times was that the wonders and animals of the sea were more and greater than the wonders of dry land, and that there was no kind of animal in the sea that did not have a counterpart on land. This was confirmed by Prof. Muhammad Fareed Wajdi in his encyclopaedia, quoting from modern academic sources. See: Daa’irah Ma’aarif al-Qarn al-‘Ishreen: Bahr – Hayawiyan. End quote.

Well if there is something good to fail at..."


Lol! If i had to choose a monotheistic religion it would be islam though. Because it doesn't put a face to god really, and it doesn't say that jesus is his son and all that, but shia pillars support suicide bombings and all that so....

The only reasons for people having their heads in the metaphorical clouds is 1-stupidity and 2-it's fun. And beautiful :)
