  • AOA

    If it naturally brewed soy sauce with ingredients statement says Wheat and Soy then it is a fermented product just like wine and it has 1-3% alcohol. If the restuarants serving naturally brewed soy sauce you should avoid it. If it Muslim owned restuarant then tell him it is Hram and buy all purpose soy sauce from LaChay brnad if it is available in India.

  • Assalamoalaikum. Facts projected on your website are very disturbing which show that all major restaurant chains are selling one or more not-halal products. This year i went for hajj alhamdollilah, and all these restaurants are selling out baitullah sharif and also around masjid i nabvi. There is no information provided to hajjis and to umrah travelers that they may be consuming haram food even while performing holy journey and religious rituals. it is the duty of this forum and other such forums to ensure that Saudi authorities make them supply only halal food at least in holy cities. Believe me they are doing such a roaring business there that they will be definitely forced to change their policy for SA in particular and other muslim countries in general. This way you you will be saving many not-knowing muslims like me from committing this sin during performance of their religious duties. jazakAllah bilkhair. - Shazia Irfan
  • AOA

    I decided not to eat chicken in Saudi Arabia before I went to Saudi Arabia in Feb 2012 because it is difference of opinion among Saudi Islamic scholars and other Islamic scholars regarding machin slaughtering. MCG ulema do not consider machine slaughtered chicken as Halal. We do not say on our website the restauarants in Mecca Shareef and Madinah shareef are selling not Halal products. This the only regarding chicken not all other animals. Chicken are machine slaughtered even in poultry salughter houses in Saudi Arabia. There are no Harm products are served in restuarants in Mecca Shareef and Madinah Shareef. Saudi FDA never allowed any pork or pork by products both for food or non food in Saudi Arabia. This is a fact. The other things left are machine slaughtered animals and alcohol in flavor. Saudi FDA has limit in foods that the alcohol in flavors should not reach more than 0.5%. I did not eat chicken, flavored fruit juices or any food products which are made with flavors. I ate at Hyderabad House, Hardee and a Pakistani restuarant, hotel Elaf Tayaba in Madinah shareef during my 8 days stay.

    Even lamb or goats for qurbani during Haj were matchine slaughtered according our brothers in Saudi Arabia because it is legistic nightmare to slaughter by hand 1-2 million goat or lamb or sheep during three days of restected period of Haj. I do not how many Muslims to hire to do hand slaughtering. The qurbani meat is send to poor Muslim countries. But you have chocie during Haj to opout from giving money to Govt for Qurbani by slaughtering the lamb or sheep or goat by yourself and your Mauleem can help in this regard.

    Saudi Govt. follows the fatwa from Saudi Islamic scholars and Islamic scholars in other part of world may differe from their fatwa. Nobody can do any thing.

  • Salam I was looking for deodorants. According to the website, in some deodorants, "No animal derived ingredients are used"; however, it says nothing about whether alcohol is used or not. Also, I was wondering why there is no clear-cut specification on the website regarding whether certain deodorants are Halal or not, like in the case of food products. Could you kindly provide the above information? - Hassaan Qayyum
  • AOA

    Personal care items can be classified as Halal because they lack Halal or kosher certification except very few. Companies do not give the information about alcohol in fragrance because they get it from Fragrance companies who do not want to tell about the ingredients because their compition can duplicate them. So use unscented or ask your Islamic scholar about their use.

  • I sent you an e-mail, but later I found out the name I gave you to respond to, was no longer accepting responses. Sorry. I'll repeat that query with this e-mail: Could you please elaborate on what you consider "contamination"? See, the supermarkets I shop at, employ alot of cigarette smokers. Smoking, as we know, in Islam, is considered "haram". So if the cashier whos checking my groceries out, is a known smoker, and of course there HANDLING my food, would you then consider the items "haram"? On this site, I read about how animal (pig) fat can be used in plastcs (Zinc stearate). But things I enjoyed eating like fruit cups, pineapple and especially dates, are packaged in plastic containers when sold in supermarkets. On this site you mentioned how animal fat was used in Dart products, in their styrofoam cups, and I think a couple others. Do you have any knowledge of this fat being used in plastic or styrofoam that packages supermarket fruits and vegetables? Also, E-numbers. This is an issue I find particularly troubling. If a store shopping bag has a "haram E-number, and I don't realize it until AFTER I put the items I just purchased in it, would you consider those items "contaminated", because there in the bag? I live in Bergen County, New Jersey. Not Mecca, Arabia. Does the imamate that designates things "haram, mushboo or contaminated" ever consider people that DON'T live in Muslim countries? Theres an article online titled "When haram can become halal" that I encourage all Muslims to study. As far as halal establishments...The ones in this area are a joke. There no more halal than the local Shop Rite or Pathmark. One final query, if I may... I'm sure most believers have this problem, when I'm on line at the supermarket, if the indivisual in front of me is purchasing something considered haram, since the cashier thats HANDLING their items will soon be HANDLING mine, would that then make my items "contaminated"? Thank you for taking the time to read this. Please respond. As salaam alaikum - OpenEyes
  • AOA

    First fall Smoking in Islam is not Haram, it is mukrooh. It looks like you are from Europe. Please go to Raza Network and go to read European Fatwa where it is written smoking is mukrooh. In USA nobody allowed to smoke in supermarkets. All fruits packed espeially date are have kosher symbol on it and there is no pork material in packaging. There is no pork material in styrofoam products but they are made on mold which are lubricated with vegetable fat or animal fat based Zink Stearate. There many styrofoam products are Halal listed on our website. In Europe if there is label "Suitable for Vegetarian" menas the packaging also do not have any animla by-products.

    Contamination will occur at many stage of food processing, including equipment, lubricant. Most packaging materials in USA do not have animal byproducts. But I do not know in Europe.
