Can we Eat the Zebra? Bazaz Narrated in Sahih Muslim and Bukhari from Abu Qatada (may Allah be pleased with him) that he saw a ZEBRA and hunted it down. Prophet (swallallaho alihi wassallam) inquired do you have any part of its meat he replied yes I have a thigh. Prophet of Allah (swallallaho alihi wassallam) accepted it and ate it.
What about Rabbit? Narrated in Sahih Muslim and Bukhari from Anus (may Allah be pleased with him) that we caught a RABBIT in 'Mar al-Zahraan' by running after it and brought it to Abu Talha (may Allah be pleased with him), he slaughtered it and sent its back and thigh to the Prophet of Allah (swallallaho alihi wassallam) and he accepted them.
Lets eat some Chicken! Narrated in Sahih Muslim and Bukhari that Abu Musa Asharee (may Allah be pleased with him) says he has seen the Prophet of Allah (swallallaho alihi wassallam) eating meat of the CHICKEN.
Locust & Fish, Liver & Spleen: Imam Ahmed and Imam Ibn Majah narrate from son of Omar (may Allah be pleased with them all) that the Prophet of Allah (swallallaho alihi wassallam) said for us two dead animal are lawful and two bloods. The two dead are fish and locust, and the two bloods are liver and spleen. Narrated in Sahih Muslim and Bukhari that Abd'Allah bin Abi Auffi (may Allah be pleased with him) said we were with the Prophet of Allah (swallallaho alihi wassallam) in a holy battle [ghazwa'] and we use to eat LOCUST in the presence of the Messenger Allah (swallallaho alihi wassallam).
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.
