Answer:
الحمد لله والصلاة والسلام على سيدنا محمد وعلى آله وصحبه أجمعين
In the Hanafi Madh’hab, the only seafood that is permissible to consume is fish. All other seafood (that is not fish) is not permissible to consume. As scallops are not considered fish, they will therefore not be considered permissible for consumption. [1]
And Allah ta’ala knows best.
