Al salam alaikom
I would kindly like an answer on the question of eating veal. Is it haram or halal? I know the forbidden like carrion, blood, and suffering animals but I am not sure about veal. Too young? or tortured because they are kept in cages. Please explain.
Thank you


Praise be to Allah.

As long as the slaughtering has been performed according to Islamic conditions, then there is no problem with eating veal. The calf being too young or being confined in a cage does not make it haraam to slaughter and eat.
