Section 1: Permissible and Impermissible Animals

4.) Land Vermin

prayingmantisWhat is vermin?

 –noun, plural ver⋅min. 

 noxious, objectionable, or disgusting animals collectively, esp. those of small size that appear commonly and are difficult to control, as flies, lice, bedbugs, cockroaches, mice, and rats.

Vermin is basically everything else aside from what we have discussed thus far 🙂

The one vermin that is permissible by all madhaahib — even Hanafis! — is……..

Can you guess? We mentioned the hadith regarding it already…..




The one vermin permissible by all the madhaahib are: LOCUSTS! (It is in the hadith regarding the two dead animals that are allowed. See post on Permissible and Impermissible Sea Animals).

For all other vermin —

Malikis, of course, say everything is permissible 😀 (Starting to get the hang of this, right?)

The other madhaahib all follow the mustakhbath rule and say that other vermin are not allowed.

wAllahu ta’aala ‘Alam

The next section, inshaAllah, will be about slaughtering (dhabh).

    Indonesia follows shafi’i usually, Turkey hanafi and so is india or paki right? but maliki?

      Hmm…good question. I just looked at my notes from The Code Evolved, and Shaykh Yaser Birjas said that the Maliki madhab exists mostly in North and West Africa. Also, his students spread it to Egypt as well. wAllahu ‘Alam. But you’re right — I don’t think it’s as widespread as the other madhaahib.
