asalamu alaikum
allah tells us in the quran that dead animals meat is haraam for us, but no matter how much we wash meat bfore we cook it, some blood always comes out while frying it and contaminates the oil or stays inside it once its cooked.
is it halal for us to eat the blood that stays on the meat and use the other foods that the blood contaminates?
another sister i know boils the meat bfore she cooks it with other food so that she can remove the blood from it, but is that neccasary?
also some meat is all blood so would we have to avoid them?
jazakumallah khair

Praise be to Allaah.
With regard to “blood poured forth” that comes out of the animal at the time of slaughter, it is najis (impure) according to scholarly consensus.

With regard to the blood that is mixed with the meat or that remains in the veins, it is not called “blood poured forth” and it is taahir (pure).

Imam at-Tabari (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

In the verse in which Allah tells His slaves that blood is haraam, He mentions “blood poured forth” (al-An‘aam 6:145), to the exclusion of other types of blood. This clearly indicates that blood that is not “poured forth” is halaal and not najis.

Then he narrated from ‘Ikrimah the words: Were it not for this verse, the Muslims would have had to trace out the blood from the veins as the Jews do.

It was narrated from Abu Majlaz, concerning the reddish colour that may appear in the cooking pot because of blood, that he said: Allah has only forbidden “blood poured forth.”

It was narrated from ‘Aa’ishah that she did not see anything wrong with the reddish colour or blood that may appear in the cooking pot, and she recited this verse (interpretation of the meaning): “Say (O Muhammad SAW): I find not in that which has been inspired to me anything forbidden to be eaten by one who wishes to eat it, unless it be Maytatah (a dead animal) or blood poured forth (by slaughtering or the like)…” [al-An ‘am 6:145].

Tafseer at-Tabari, 12/193-194, Shaakir edn. See also: Tafseer Ibn Katheer, 6/194-195.

Al-Mirdaawi (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

The blood of animals that may be eaten is taahir, according to the correct view of the madhhab, even if its reddish colour appears. This was stated and it is the correct view of the madhhab… Because the veins are part of the meat and cannot be separated from it, so the ruling (on blood) is waived, because it cannot be helped.

Al-Qaadi said: As for the blood that remains in the meat after slaughter and what is left in the veins, it is permissible. Shaykh Taqiy ad-Deen said concerning it: I do not know of any difference of opinion about overlooking it and that it does not make the broth najis; rather it may be eaten with it.

End quote from al-Insaaf by al-Mirdaawi, 1/309

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allah have mercy on him) said: Blood that remains in the slaughtered animal after it is slaughtered, such as the blood in the veins, heart, spleen and liver, is taahir whether it is a little or a lot.

End quote from ash-Sharh al-Mumti‘, 1/440

And Allah knows best.
