Ruling on eating raw meat

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Asselmu Alykum,
My question is that in some cultures people are found of eating raw meat. I would like to know if there is any Islamic rulings on that? Meaning wether it is ok or not.
Jazakallah khayr

Praise be to Allaah.

Some scholars said that it is disliked to eat raw meat, but the correct view is that it is permissible, on the basis of the principle that all things are permitted except those which have been expressly forbidden. There is no evidence to suggest that this is forbidden, but it is allowed on the condition that no harm is caused to the person who eats it – in which case it would not be allowed, because everything that causes harm is haraam, as Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “… and do not throw yourselves into destruction…” [al-Baqarah 2:195].

And Allaah knows best.

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