Is seafood Najis (ritually impure)?


Is seafood najis (ritually impure)?

I was just reading and came across the idea that all seafood, unlike non-halal meat,  is tahir (ritually pure). Is that correct?


Yes, that is correct.

No marine creature is najis even if it dies in water. So if you buy fish from a seafood shop and the fish is cooked on the same oven or pan as say, lobster and other seafood, it is okay and there is no najasah (ritual impurity) involved.
