HARAM: Hawwam هوام

HAWWAM - Creatures included in AMNA's Hawwam classification include: frogs, snails, insects (except the locust), spiders worms, snakes, scorpions, most lizards and rodents such as mice and rodents. Mold, fungus, bacteria and yeast are not hawwam.

Islam, through Jurisprudence, forbids eating all insects (save the locust), crawling and slithering animals. As a group, these animals are called hawwam as well as hasharaat al-ardh, in Arabic, but are simply known as 'vermin' and 'pests' in English.
