  • Assalamu Alaikum, I just want to know whether the microwave ovens at schools can be used or not while heating foods. I am asking this question because lots of different kinds of foods that may not be halal are being heated in the same microwave oven (but not at the same time) and I want to know whether the steam that occurs during the heating processes of those haram foods make our food not halal anymore. Please inform me about this issue. Jazakallah - Anonymous user

  • Why Is it haram to eat from fast food restaurants when Allah(SWT) says in the Quran chapter 5:5, "This day [all] good foods have been made lawful, and the food of those who were given the Scripture is lawful for you and your food is lawful for them. " - Ahmed
  • AOA

    Made lawful to you this day are At-Tayyibat [all kinds of Halal (lawful) foods, which Allah has made lawful (meat of islamically-slaughtered eatable animals, etc., milk products, fats, vegetables and fruits, etc.).�The food (slaughtered cattle, eatable animals, etc.) of the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) is lawful to you and yours is lawful to them.�(Lawful to you in marriage) are chaste women from the believers and chaste women from those who were given the Scripture (Jews and Christians) before your time, when you have given their due Mahr (bridal money given by the husband to his wife at the time of marriage), desiring chastity (i.e.�taking them in legal wedlock) not committing illegal sexual intercourse, nor taking them as girl-friends.�And whosoever disbelieves in the Oneness of Allah and in all the other Articles of Faith [i.e.�His (Allah�s), Angels, His Holy Books, His Messengers, the Day of Resurrection and Al-Qadar (Divine Preordainments)], then fruitless is his work, and in the Hereafter he will be among the losers. (5:5)

    You should forgot the word Tayyab means pure. Do you think the fast food chains who sells pork bacon come under word Tayyab or pure.

  • I found this gourmet collagen soft chews in GNC and the customer service representor said that Collagen is a vegetable Gelatin, please tell me if it is a halal Ingredient or no as I don't feel comfortable. JazakAllahKhair - Hadia
  • AOA

    They are not Halal because they are not kosher certified. There is no such thing as vegetable gelatin. Gelatin is made from animal and fish.

    Gelatin in any food product or ingredient or Vitamins or medicine is not Halal unless it says Fish Gelatin under ingredients statement in USA and Canada

    MCG is receiving many inquiries about gelatin foods or ingredients or in vitamins whether it is Halal or not.

    The important point is none of the gelatin carrying food products or ingredients or vitamins are Halal unless it says fish gelatin under ingredients statement. The use of fish gelatin in foods in USA is on rise because of demand by Muslim consumers and Jewish consumers. Food companies have booths at IFT Food Expo in July 2013 in Chicago promoting use of fish gelatin. It is important to know the fish gelatin from cat fish is not consider Halal or Kosher. Beta Carotene suppliers use fish gelatin as  a processing aid ingredient or hidden ingredient in Beta Carotene powder form so that it mixes well with other ingredients and fish gelatin is not mentioned under ingredients list.

  • I accidentally ate Bacon cheddar potato chips just after looking at the U sign on the packet. Later i realized and regret thinking I had pig bacon. Can you please explain it its haram ? I do not find bacon content in the ingredients but its bacon cheddar on the packet. - Masihuddin
  • AOA

    Orthodox Kosher OU symbol carrying products will not have Haram pork but they can kosher certify a Bacon Cheddar Potato chip made of artificial bacon flavor by use of chemicals. There is no bacon in it. Although there is no bacon in it but I do not advise to consume it unless it says beef bacon cheddar potato chips. Since bacon can be made from pork and beef. But if it is made from beef it has to say beef bacon. If it says bacon it means pork. So please do not use it there is yeast extract in it then it mostly comes from brewer yeast which is by product of beer making. Muslims should stay away from bacon even it is made with chemical only because bacon is not Muslim product. Bacon comes from artificial flavor.

  • Assalam alaykom The sees candy lollipops do not contain VANILLA except the Vanilla flavored lollipop, the butterscotch lolipop contains vanillin which is a halal artificial flavor, the coffe and chocolate lollipops do not contain VANILLA or VANILLIN, they only contain ( Corn syrup , Butter , Cream (Milk) , Sugar , Coffee, Soy Lecithin (an emulsifier) , vinegar , Cocoa butter and Salt. There is no Flavoring in the lollipops and they're Kosher certified. So are they considered halal?! - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    There is no ingredients on their website but as you wrote the ingredients of coffee and chocolate lollipos then it is Halal. After I aget the ingredients from See Candy then I examined the vanilla one if they meet Halal requirements then Inshallah I will publish it on our website.

  • Is Doritos brand chips nacho cheese flavored halal. - doritos
  • AOA

    From our Alert section:

    TITLE: Why Cheetos and Doritos (except Doritos Toasted Corn Tortilla Chips) are not Halal

    There is no kosher symbol on the package of Cheetos and Doritos. This makes them Non Halal because they can add any Haram Hidden or Processing aid ingredients without mentioning under the ingredients statement. Cheese used in Cheetos and Doritos are not Kosher certified and not Halal. Sine these products are not under Halal or Kosher certification then Frito Lay can use non kosher certified flavors or colors. There is no restriction for Frito Lay to make Cheetos or Doritos on their own lines or on co-packers line where pork containing products are made. This exposes a great possibility of cross contamination of pork containing ingredients. All these snacks are very attractive to adults and children but there is a Hadith which says that Allah will not accept your dua for 40 days if a Muslim eats intentionally a bit of Haram food. So MCG recommend Muslims not consume above snacks.
