Eating beef daily

Fatwaa ID: 633

Assalamu Alaikum,

I would like to seek your guidance on a matter related to diet. Is it permissible to consume beef on a daily basis, or would this be considered excessive consumption in light of Islamic principles of moderation? As we know, Islam advises us to maintain moderation in all aspects of life, including our diet. Would it be considered excessive if one were to consume beef at every meal, for example, three times a day? I would be grateful for your advice on this matter. Jazak Allah Khair.
Or even 2 times a day^
Basically following a carnivore diet*

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

There is no religious prohibition in having meat at all meals. Moderation is applicable in all things and forms. It is possible to have beef at multiple meals everyday, yet with moderation. There is no religious virtue in abstaining from beef.
As far as the health angle is concerned, that is beyond our scope. You may consult a reliable upright nutritionist for that.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
