Pearl of Wisdom

'Verily you are brothers in the religion of Allah, nothing has separated you except ill natures and bad consciences, consequently you do not bear the burdens of each other, nor do you advise each other, nor spend on each other, nor love each other.'

Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib [as]
Nahj al-Baldgha, Sermon 113

Subject: halal and haram fish
Question: Salam,
What's the ruling behind halal and haram fish?
What type of fish can we eat?
Answer: It is not permissible to eat from marine animals anything except fish that has scale.

Question:
The rule is that if a fish has scales and is caught alive, you can eat the fish. You are probably a better judge in identifying which fish is allowed and which is not.
