Eating of locusts

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 7.403 Narrated by Ibn Abi Aufa

We participated with the Prophet (saws) in six or seven Ghazawat (Battles), and we used to eat locusts with him.


Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 4132 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Umar

Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "Two types of animals which have died a natural death and two types of blood have been made lawful to us: the two which die a natural death being creatures of the sea, and the locust; and the two types of blood being the liver and the spleen."

Related by Ahmad, Ibn Majah and Daraqutni.


In light of the above guidance, the Messenger of Allah (saws) declared all types of locusts as lawful food for the believers to consume as food.


Your Question: Please explain what type of locusts are halaal as related by this hadith ..narrated by Umar (r.a) ..

Beloved sister, to the best of our knowledge we have not come across the hadith you have implied where the Messenger of Allah (saws) desired toasted locusts.if you could kindly give us the exact reference of the hadith, we could give you our comments.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.



Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
