Topic/Issue:3791 - Carrion found in the sea --
Opinion FromOpinionExplanation
Imam Malik,Imam ShafiIt is permitted absolutelyPreferred Abu Hurayra's tradition
Imam Abu HanifaIt is prohibited absolutelyThey decided on the basis of preference for the general implication of the Book in the verse 5:3. For them, Abu Hurayra's tradition was weak and also tradition of Jabir
Other JuristWhat floats on the sea is prohibited and what is left on the coast by the tide is permitted.Preferred the tradition of Jabir over Abu Hurayra's tradition because of the support of the general implication of the Book for it in verse 5:3. Hence they did not exempt anything from it (the general rule), except what is brought in by the tide, as no conflict arises from it.
Evidences :1 - Quran [5:3], 2 - Sahih Muslim [# 4756], Hadith of Abu Huraira, Hadith of Jabir [Hide/Show]
