Slaughterings of the Shi’ah

Fatwaa ID: 2142

Assalaamu Alaykum Respected Mufti

Is it permissible to eat the meat slaughtered by Shia’s, who do Tasmiyah and hand slaughter?
Would it fall under the same category as Ahle Kitaab?

Jazaakallah Khayr

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

It is not permissible to eat the slaughterings of the Shi’ahs even if they say the tasmiyah and slaughter by hand. They are not from the Ahl al-Kitaab, and in many cases, they are out of the fold of Islam due to their deviant beliefs. You must stay away from their meat.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
