    In my personal opinion, a donkey meets all the requirements of a halal animal for consumption similar to a horse. I would like to know what makes donkey meat haram. If there ia a Hadith, does it meet the standards of authenticity?

      I saw one of his video and to me he is not directly calling horse or donkey haram, but a little funny to eat donkey meat. If the working animal makes them haram, then yes, camel, bull and even cows should be haram too as they are used for work in many cultures.

      I just saw this video, Isn’t he clearly stating that donkey, horse are halal and animals that are exclusively herbavorous are halal. So I assume, an elephant or giraffe will be halal too.

    No he didn’t said they are haram because we are using them for work he said we use them for work that’s why we don’t want to eat them but i want clarification about that hadith which says donkey meat is haram but Sir ghamidi said donkey meat is not haram

    First of all, understand that Hadith is not an independent source of Islam. It is complimentary.

    Since, donkey donot fall in any forbidden category prescribed by Quran. It cannot be forbidden as per Quran. Hadoth may clarify some aspects of Quran directives.

    When you look other hadith regarding this matter, you will find that Prophet Mohammad saw has forbid domisticated donkeys while wild donkeys were permitted. Eg, check hadith here

    https://sunnah.com/bukhari:5407

    Note: onager is wild donkey

    As far as Dietary prohibitions are concerned, it works on the principle of Taiyyabaat and Khabaais. And In another place, Quran has cleared Taiyyabaat with word ‘Bahimatul-Anam’, meaning the cattle specie, which makes the differentiation more clear i.e. it is the ‘Beastly (Darindagi)‘ and ‘Non-Beastly‘ nature which are the most distinguishing factors. Then there are animals in between this category which could be predatory but not actually beastly in nature, which could put them in the grey area. There is also a category which is neither predatory nor beastly in nature like horse, donkey etc. but also falls in the same grey area. This is the Mushtabihaat category.

    Neither is there any list presented by religion nor should we try to make one. If my fitrat tells me that something is not appropriate to eat and I decide to eat it any way then I’ll be held accountable, but if I genuinely think that some animal belongs to taiyyab category and I eat that animal then I will not be held accountable. Most of the times our fitrat guides us correctly in terms of what to eat and what not. Exceptions will always be there and as long as human race exists, there will always be differences in application of certain principles (not in the principles, but in their application).

    As long as Ahadith related to Donkey Eating are concerned, when we collect all the turks, we come to realization that famous narration of Khaibar was not about hurmat or hillat of Donkey Meat, rather, it was about consumption of ‘Maal-e-Ghanimat’ before official distribution. Camel is more closer to cattle because of both the milk and its meat, and in addition, it is also used for travel purposes which is not the case for Horse and Donkey.
