Can I Eat Using Silver Utensils?

Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam

Question: Assalam alaikum,

1. My family has only silver utensils at home. Can I eat using them?

2. How should I go about knowing whether the meat my family is halal?

Answer: Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

I pray that this message finds you well, insha’Allah.

(1) The prohibition is with respect to items made of silver, as opposed to items of a silver colour or merely coated with silver.

(2) You should contact your local, reliable scholar or mosque centre and ask which meat has been certified and approved as lawful (halal).

And Allah alone knows best.
