  • Assalamu Alaikum, I have a couple of quick questions: 1 - In Canada, are these Kosher symbols reliable? a) K with circle around it; b) K with triangle around it 2 - If a product contains monoglycerides and diglycerides, but is kosher certified, does this mean the monoglycerides are vegetarian or could they still be haram (e.g. from beef)? JazakAllah khair - Omar
  • AOA

    The mono & Diglycerides are made from from soy fat whenever there is any kosher symbol on it. They do not have kosher symbol on beef fat because the kosher slaughtered beef is for retail consumption not for industrial. Canada's orthodox kosher symbols are COR, MK and others.

  • Most of the fruits contain ethyl alcohol in it,like the alcohol in some natural flavors..So why those products which contain natural flavors haram...Those products such as ice cream or cakes does not make us drunk... Thank you..... - sam
  • AOA

    The minute amount of alcohol produced during ripening of fruit is a natural thing or Allah's Qudrat no men's hand was involed and this is reason fruits are Halal for centuries. On other hand Man has choice to avoid alcohol in flavor because there are Halal alternate solvent such as Propylene Glycol available to him but man choices alcohol in western countries because they drink alcohol as their diet and do not find using alcohol as a solvent in flavor. A Muslim's job is to avoid those food products which are made with alcohol containing flavor so that they can avoid not accepting their Namaz and dua for fort days according to a Hadith.

  • AOA

    The answer is no at any place, the ingredients has to be examined and research, the fryer, vegetable oil should not used for pork (such as at Burger King which uses same oil for fish and pork patties), no other food such as pork patties should be used. McDonald fish patty has whey and natural flavor and they are not giving the answer whether they are using kosher certified whey in USA and Canada. McDonald is also not providing information about presence or absence of alcohol in natural flavor. So McDonald fish patties is mushbooh in USA.

  • Salaam, can you advise if TCP antiseptic liquid is halal to use for gargling in mouth for sore throats. The manufacturer has advised it does not contain animal ingredients. When i asked about alcohol content they advised it contains phenols, which are not sourced from dates or grapes. They are synthetically synthesised and do not have similar physical effects on human anatomy as ethanol. They only fall under the same chemical group name. The ingredients are halogenated phenols 0.68% w/v and phenol 0.175% w/v. It also contains glycerol, concentrated phosphoric acid, E104 (quinoline yellow), water. Jazak'Allah khair - Fiona ahmed

    All Phenol group of chemicals are Halal, since glycerol is a questionalable ingredient but company said it is not source from animal fat, if there is no ethyl alcohol listed then you can use it.
