Sheikh, here in some parts of India people are eating locusts and some mufti’s and molana’s are giving fatwas that its halal to eat locust at that time of prophet ﷺ‎ sahabas and prophet ﷺ‎ ate locust how true is this? Ya sheikh now my father believes its sunnah to eat locust i find it weird

ANSWER:

The Prophet salla Allahu alaihi wa Sallam had told us in an authentic hadeeth that locusts are like sea food that we can eat even if found dead. Eating it is NOT from the sunnah but rather a permissible thing to do for those who wish to do it. I don’t know of any hadeeth stating that the prophet salla allahu alaihi wa sallam had ever consumed it.
