Prophet Muhammad saws ate them in military campaigns and encouraged Muslims to eat them as well. There are authentic hadith about it.

It also serves a practical purpose. Locusts come in plagues which devour all plant life in a given area, causing famine. Therefore, catching and eating locusts reduces famine.

Today most Arabs view them as a healthy, protein-rich food and consume them as a delicacy.
