Q: I would like to know if scallops (similar to mussels as they also grow in shells) are Halaal?

Answer: Kindly be advised that scallops, calamari, crabs, crayfish and lobster being non-fish are not permitted for Hanafis.

However, according to Imam Sh?fi’iy rahimahullah, all seafood is permissible except for frogs, turtles, crocodiles and any animal whose consumption will harm the consumer.
