Question

Would it be possible for a Muslim to consume no animal products e.g. meat, cheese, eggs and fish ?

Answer

 

In the name of Allāh, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


Assalāmu ῾alaykum wa Rahmatullāhi Wabarakātuh

 

Islam does not obligate Muslims to eat all halal foods. Therefore, it is permissible for a Muslim not to eat animal products such as meat, cheese, eggs, and fish.   

 

And Allāh Ta῾āla Knows Best

Wassalāmu ῾alaykum
