Ruling on eating imported butter, salted fish, and sardines

Q 1: a. What is the ruling of Islam on eating Dutch butter ?B. What is the ruling of Islam on eating Fisikh (salted fish) and sardines ?C. What is the ruling of Islam on drinking cold drinks, such as Pepsi and Sport Cola ?

A: a. The basic ruling is that all types of butter are lawful, unless anything is confirmed that changes permissibility to prohibition. We do not know of anything that changes this ruling, so all kinds of butter remain lawful to eat.B. Fisikh and sardine are fish, and fish are Halal (lawful) to eat, even if they are Maytah (unslaughtered dead animals). It was authentically reported that when the Prophet (peace be upon him) was asked about the sea, he said, “Its water is a purifier and its Maytah (i.e. Dead sea creatures) are Halal.” Therefore, it is Halal to eat Fisikh and sardines.C. The drinks you mentioned are Halal to drink, as long as a large amount does not cause intoxication. (Part No. 22; Page No. 315) May Allah grant us success.
