Is it Permitted To Eat Bone Broth?
  • Question:

    Is it permitted to eat bone broth? I was told that it is Haram because it is from the food of the jinn.



    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    Yes, it is permitted to eat bone broth.

    Bones are from the food of the jinn in the sense that when they come across them, the meat is returned to them and the jinn eat of it as understood from the traditions (hadith) about this in Sahih Muslim and elsewhere. It is not that they necessarily eat the bones themselves.

    Moreover, even if it were otherwise and they actually ate the bones, this would not seem to prevent the permissibility of benefiting from the meat and bone in its entirety.

    And Allah knows best.
