HARAM: Blood

Islamic Prohibition against BLOOD:
Islam forbids the consumption of BLOOD. Muslims are forbidden to drink or eat blood products such as blood pudding or blood sausages, even if the blood comes from an halal animal.

Islamic slaughter, known as zabihah (ذبيحة), dictates that the animal be exsanguinated — drained of all flowing blood — after slitting the jugular vein. In their kitchens, Muslims routinely wash raw meat, soaking it in a solution of vinegar and water, or water and salt, to further draw out blood from the meat.

[ BLOOD in Quran & Hadith ]
