Ruling on eating sharks

Q 1: Is shark meat Halal (lawful) or Haram (prohibited) ?

A: All types of fish are Halal, including the shark and others, as is understood from the general meaning of Allah’s Saying: Lawful to you is (the pursuit of) water-game and its use for food Also, when the Prophet (peace be upon him) was asked about the sea water, he replied, “Its water is a purifier and its Maytah (dead sea creatures) are Halal.” May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
