    Street foods are popular in almost every city of Pakistan, especially among the low income group people. In Rawalpindi, Street Food includes burgers, fries, shawarma, fruit chaat, rolls, Samosa as well as beverages such as sugarcane juice, shakes and lemon soda. A large part of the city population meets a substantial part of its dietary and nutritional needs through meals and beverages offered by outdoor vendors. Such street foods are often contaminated with bacteria, which affect the health of consumers. Contamination is the result of a combination of factors, including the unhygienic environment in which food is prepared and stored, and improper handling and preparation practices. Vendors generally prepare food with their bare hands, passing on germs to what they have on offer. The water used to prepare the food and to clean the cooking and eating utensils and sometimes even the swab cloths used for drying are other sources of contamination. The food is often stored and sold on open trays paving the way for the germs from garbage heaps on the streets to get transmitted. People manning the food stalls should be wearing gloves, have disposable plates and keep their food items covered. These are not practised at majority of eateries in the city, where cups and plates are sub-standard, mostly cracked, and improperly washed in a bucket of dirty water. The food sellers are ready with their excuses and claim that they are doing their best under given circumstances. “We are all poor and it is becoming difficult to survive in this era of high inflation,” says one stall owner.

    Why is shark haram ?
    • Shark eats with mouth
    • Fish eats with mouth
    Shark swims in sea
    Fish swims in sea
    What am I missing?

    I think people need to really just live their lives , 99.9% vendors do follow proper techniques and do their best to prepare the food properly

    If it helps to know McDonalds is as harmful to your health as any street vendor

    Sharks, are nearly isotonic as compared to sea water (i.e. they have a similar ion concentration). For this, sharks and rays add urea to their body fluids. Their kidney enables reabsorption of large amounts of urea from the primary urine into the blood, which makes their urine much less concentrated, i.e. more watery than in a human. The higher percentage of urea in the blood, which can reach 2.5% in a shark (in other vertebrates, it is only 0.01 – 0.03%) makes the shark’s blood isotonic to sea water.

    Shark species swimming from the sea into brackish or fresh water (e.g. bull sharks) can adjust their kidney function so that larger amounts of urea pass with the otherwise diluted urine.

    "O People, eat from the land what is permitted & good & do not follow in the footsteps of Shaitan, for he is an open enemy to you."
    (Al Baqarah, 2:168)


    Allah swt has given clear guidelines on what can and cannot be consumed. In addition we have also been instructed in manners and behavior of eating. Eating and drinking also becomes a way by which a Muslim remembers the bounties of Allah swt and by observing the rules of Shariah, he also shows his commitment to his religion.

    The 25th Greater Sin: -Consumption of Harām | Non-Halal Meat is Unhealthy | Eating Habits in Islam

    On this page-> Zabiha matters | Question & Answers | Eating /Drinking Manners | Alcohol

    Foods can be primarily divided into two sections:
    1 - Plants, fruits, vegetables and grains: All these can be eaten as long as they are not harmful to human beings. This means that they must not contain poisonous or narcotic substances.

    2 - Living creatures.
    These can be divided into three: A. Sea creatures ,B. Land creatures & C. Birds

    A- Sea creatures.
    We are allowed to eat any fish as long as it has scales (see list here) . All other sea creatures such as whales, sharks, turtles, lobsters and crabs are Haraam. The only exception is for prawns and shrimps, which can be eaten.
    In order for the fish to be Halaal, it must be removed alive from the water. It does not matter who has done the fishing or what method has been used to catch the fish.

    - no offence but this says "nothihg" about Shark being haram

    The shark is mostly alive when it is removed from sea

    "Sharks have tiny, coarse scales called placoid scales" I mean who makes these lists

    So once a shark bites the lines (bait) it dies immediately lol come on

    Shark's meat! Narrated in Sahih Muslim and Bukhari that Jabbir (may Allah be pleased with him) says that I went to 'Habs al-Khapt' [name of a place] and leader of our battalion was Abu Ubaidah bin al-Jarrah (may Allah be pleased with him). We were very hungry and the river threw such a dead fish [on shore] that like of which we had never seen. Its name is A'nber. We [almost 300] ate it for half a month. Abu Ubaidah (may Allah be pleased with him) stood one of its bones (and according to some narrations it was its rib). Its [the bone's] height was so much that one camel with its rider passed under it. When we came back, we told this to the Prophet of Allah (swallallaho alihi wassallam) and he said, eat! Allah has sent this sustenance [food] for you and if you have any feed us too. We sent some of it to the Prophet of Allah (swallallaho alihi wassallam) and he ate it.

    (Abstracted from "Bahr e Shariat" Part 16, Vol. 2, by Maulana Amjad Ali Azmi Al-Qadri (Hanffi))
