Fatwa against eating frogs including the northern leopard frog
Muslim Brotherhood’s Muhammad Morsi just won the presidency in Egypt.
The first legal action taken, the very first fatwa to appear by Egypt’s highest fatwa council, addresses—not social, political, or economic issues in Egypt—but rather frogs.
Specifically, the fatwa bans Muslims from hunting and killing frogs to sell to those nations that dine on the amphibians.
As the fatwa explains, according to Islam’s prophet Muhammad as recorded in a hadith, a frog’s “croaking is praise [to Allah].”
Accordingly, “a number of jurists [fuqaha] have relied on this [hadith] to forbid the eating of frogs, under the notion that ‘that which is banned from being killed, is forbidden from being eaten.’”
