“BEING VEGAN IS HARAM!”
If I had a riyal for every time someone has said this to me, I would be able to single-handedly fund the vegan restaurant of my dreams.
This is by far the most common myth that pervades surface-level discussions on veganism and Islam. Yet, it is also the easiest to refute. Even scholars who do not understand the reasoning behind current-day veganism concede that the practice of veganism is permissible in Islam. Perhaps most surprisingly, even the Salafi scholars at Islam Q&A accept that practising veganism does not make one less of a Muslim.
