  • Assalam o alaikum, Dear brother, I earlier forwarded you a question to you which I am producing here for your ready reference; "Dear Brother, Assalam o alaikum, I had forwarded the following inquiry to Tsubaki hair treatment series (shampoos & conditioners) of Japan to inquire about the use of ethyl alcohol in their shampoos: "Hi Tsubaki, Many thanks for resonding to my query. However I would appreciate if you can also respond me regarding whether ethyl alcohol is: -used as a solvent in any of your ingredients; or -used to aid processing of any ingredient; of Tsubaki. I would be waiting for your response. " To the above question I received the following response from company. "Dear, as Tsubaki is using natural essential oil blend into the products and water is not a perfect solvent to extract essential oil, so ethyl alcohol act as solvent for extraction. However we are using compression method (not chemical extract) to extract Tsubaki oil as main ingredient. So, ethyl alcohol only use to extract other sub essential oil. May I know any special concern of the uses of ethyl alcohol so I could answer to your question more specifically?" Pls note that the Company had earlier clarified that they donot use any animal or human ingredients. I request you to kindly clarify about its halal status. Waiting for your earnest response. JazakAllah." To my above question you responded not to use it. I sent the following reply to company: "Dear Tsubaki, Many thanks for responding to my query. I really appreciate the integrity and concern you have shown to respond to my query. However being a muslim consumer, I am reluctant in using any product that contains either animal ingredients or alcohol or alcohol/animal derived ingredients. I would be waiting for the time when Tsubaki uses any solvent other than ethyl alcohol to make it suitable for use for Muslim consumers. Many thanks for all your cooperation and facilitation." To my above reply the company responded as follows: Dear customer, I guess you are Malaysian Muslim, base on JAKIM rules, alcohol in medical and cosmetic field is considered halal as the alcohol we using is denaturated alcohol,it is different from the alcohol for consuming purpose. For intance, doctor will apply alcohol for you before injection, the purpose is to kill bacteria on skin. As well as cosmetics and shampoo, alcohol in the shampoo can keep the content fresh from bacteria beside to work as solvent. I hope I able to answer your question, please feel safe for the products as all Tsubaki items are approved by KKM." I request you to kindly clarify about its halal status now keeping in view the last response received from company. Apologies for exchanging long mail however that's to clarify the product's ingredients. Waiting for your earnest response. JazakAllah. - Ambreen

  • on the ifanca website many ben and jerry ice creams are now certified halal. - FARIDA
  • AOA

    All the Ben & Jerry ice cream except Coffeee Health Crunch are made with alcohol containing flavor and some with Vanilla Extract which contains 35% alcohol. If I were you I will never consume any food product made with alcohol because alcohol is Haram:

    FATWA FROM DARUL IFTA JAMIA NIZAMIA HYDERABAD, INDIA ON ALCOHOL

    Jamia Nizamia has issued the following Fatwa on Alcohol:

    Although there is difference of opinion among ulema about alcohol being consider as wine but according to "Mufti Ba Qhool" (saying of Mufti) anything which causes intoxication in large or small quantity is consider as Haram. So use of alcohol is prohibited.

    Only Ben & Jerry Coffee Health Crunch Ice cream is Halal because it has no flavor and it is kosher certified.

  • AOA

    FD&C Red 40 & Yellow 5 or FD&C Blue 1 are chemical dyes, lakes and they are Halal if used as powder or granular forms but if they have to use as liquid then vegetable oil or glycerin is added as a solvent. Glycerin can be made from pork or beef or vegetable fat. Only vegetable fat based glycerin is Halal.

    A kosher symbol such as U or K  on any food package containing red 40 or yellow 5 indicates that either Red 40 or Yellow 5 is used either as a dry powder or if it is used as in liquid form in the product then vegetable oil or vegetable fat based glycerin was used as a solvent.

  • Dear brother, Here you are the link once again (please take the entire link) http://www.garnier.com.au/_en/_au/programmes/faq/answer.aspx?tpcode=PROGRAMMES%5EFAQ%5EDEODORANTS%5EDEODORANTS_T2%5EDEODORANTS_T2_Q21 If the link doesn't open again. Here you are what it reads: (((Some deodorants say they are "alcohol-free" and still have a scent? Does it in fact contain alcohol? Alcohol-free means that there is no alcohol added to the product's formula as a disinfectant. The amount of alcohol that is used for the scent is minimal.))) Actually, my brother, this link is VERY DISAPPOINTING to me. It mad me have doubts in all alcohol-free products I use. For example, I use an alcohol-free hair gel cream. When I read its ingredients, I found the word "fragrance" listed in it, even though it is alcohol-free. Based on the above-mentioned facts, does it mean that any alcohol-free product is not necessarily alcohol-free when it has "fragrance" in its ingredients list? Thank you brother May God reward you - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    You should buy their product if they are unscent or perfume free. Alcohol is the hidden ingredient of scent and perfume. The alcohol free label is for ingredients which are listed under ingredients statement.

  • AOA

    Our Halal Criteria or Standard:

    CRITERIA USED IN IDENTIFYING HALAL FOOD PRODUCTS

    Method of data collection:

    1. Visiting the major supermarkets in the region, examining each product for ingredients declaration on the package.
    2. Checking for different kosher symbols on the package which meet with the Islamic dietary requirements.
    3. Inquiring (limited) with the food manufacturers for the source of questionable ingredients, incidental or hidden ingredients or processing aid ingredients by phone or letter.
    4. In the absence of a Halal or kosher symbol, selecting a food product which is made with Halal ingredients only determined by 27 years of diversified food manufacturing, R & D, Quality Assurance experience in food industry and knowledge of food ingredients.

    Not all Kosher certified food products are consider Halal because they are made with Haram ingredients according to MCG criteria such as listed below. If one of them present in kosher certified product then MCG will not consider it Halal:

    • Gelatin from pork and non zabiha cow
    • Kosher Gelatin except fish gelatin
    • L-Cysteine made from human hair or chicken or duck feathers
    • Wine
    • Liquor
    • Beer batter
    • Rum flavor

    • Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce
    • Yeast Extract or Autolyzed Yeast made from brewer's yeast, a by product of beer making
    • Torula Yeast grown on alcohol

My Question is can I process Halal Certified Lamb from Australia/New Zealand here at our plant for re-export to UAE.. I don't understand why our Halal Certifier would not honor another country's Halal Certification? Thank you. - Bhasker Raghav
  • Hi

    Our organization is not in Meat Halal certification and we do not consider Halal meat sold in Costco from Australia/New Zeeland as Halal because if the vacuume break down the Halal meat is exposed to cross contamination with pork intheir meat palnt or store shop.

    Every country has rules and regulations about accepting the Halal certificate from foreign countries. UAE accept meat from those Halal certifiers who are approved by them.

  • Assalamu Alaykum brother. May Allah bless you abundantly for your efforts. My question is, does zabihah in the USA mean that the meat is hand slaughtered and unstunned? In the UK there is one main certifying agency (HMA). In the US, how can we know if meat is unstunned and hand slaughtered? If a product has hand slaughtered zabiha label, does this mean it is unstunned? Thank you. - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    It does not mean that meat is hand slaughtered in USA. Many so called Zabiha Halal chicken are machine slaughtered in USA. Some turkey are also machine slaughtered But Beef, goat and lamb are hand slaughtered in USA. There very few companies who slaughtered their chicken and turkey by hand.

    FATWA FROM DARUL IFTA JAMIA NIZAMIA HYDERABAD, INDIA ON ALCOHOL

    Jamia Nizamia has issued the following Fatwa on Alcohol:

    Although there is difference of opinion among ulema about alcohol being consider as wine but according to "Mufti Ba Qhool" (saying of Mufti) anything which causes intoxication in large or small quantity is consider as Haram. So use of alcohol is prohibited.
