Is it okay to eat meat which has a little blood on it after cooking?


Slmz. Is it okay to eat meat which has a little blood on it after cooking?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

It is permissible to consume the meat which has non-flowing blood remaining in it.[i] Generally, the blood remaining in cooked meat is not flowing; therefore it is permissible for consumption.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
