Blood of eatable animals

Q: Is the blood of animals that are lawful to be eaten according to Islamic law, such as sheep and cows, Najis (impure)?

A: All praise be to Allah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, and his family and Companions. The Masfuh (spilled, poured forth) blood of slaughtered animals whose meat is lawful to be eaten like sheep and cows is Najis (impure); whereas, the blood remaining in the veins and meat of the slaughtered animal is Tahir (pure).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
