Eating squid, octopus and mussels

Q: I was aware that seafood is halaal. Keeping that in mind, I ate squid, octopus and mussels. When I researched later, I found out it is not halaal. Could you please confirm whether it was halaal or not? If it is not, how can I repent? This action was done unintentionally.

A: According to the Hanafi Mazhab from the sea creatures, only fish are permissible.

Make istighfaar and in future be more cautious.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
