Selling Haraam Meat to Non-Muslims

Question

Can you sell carrion or haraam  meat to non-Muslims. If there is only doubt  about it being haraam, what us the ruling?

Answer

It is not permissible to sell animals that have died without being slaughtered in a Shar’ee manner to anybody, be it Muslim or Non-Muslim, nor is it permissible to sell other Haraam items.

If there is doubt with regard to whether an item is Halaal or Haraam then too, one should abstain from selling such an item. The income earned from the sale of such an item will also be doubtful.

Mufti Muhammed Saeed Motara Saheb D.B.

ولا ينعقد بيع الحية، والعقرب، وجميع هوام الأرض كالوزغة، والضب، والسلحفاة، والقنفذ، ونحو ذلك؛ لأنها محرمة الانتفاع بها شرعا؛ لكونها من الخبائث فلم تكن أموالا فلم يجز بيعها
