Having fish and meat in non-Islamic restaurants
Date 28 November 2021 & Clock 02:58
In some restaurants, for example McDonald’s, where fish is served to customers, it is not known whether the fish is of the type that has scales. In such a case, is there any problem in eating the fish or not?
As for fish, one has to make sure the fish is of the type that has scales. But if the restaurant is in a Muslim country and run by a Muslim, there is no need to investigate. Of course, if you are sure the fish is not of the type that has scales, eating it is not permissible.
