Eating of snails

Concerning this Issue and the likes the most correct opinion to treat them is the opinion of Ibn Abbas which considers them to be permissible except those mentioned in Allah’s, the most high, word : ‘’Say, I do not find within that which was revealed to me [anything] forbidden to one who would eat it unless it be a dead animal or blood spilled out or the flesh of swine – for indeed, it is impure – or it be [that slaughtered in] disobedience, dedicated to other than Allah. But whoever is forced [by necessity], neither desiring [it] nor transgressing [its limit], then indeed, your Lord is Forgiving and Merciful.” [Quran 6 : 145 ]
