    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    Yes shark is halal. Sharks are fish and all fish are permissible.

    The Prophet (pbuh) has stated, “Two animals that die naturally have been permitted for us, the locust and the fish”(Baihaqi)

    And Allah knows best.
