  • Hi, I know this website is based mainly on food but I was wondering about medication. When I'm tired because I haven't had enough sleep, I take my friend's dexadrine (capsules for ADHD) to keep me awake and alert at work and school. Is that haram? - Anonymous user

    This website has lot over the counter medicine and few prescription medicine and their Halal status. The capsule could be made with pork. But only manufacturer knows whether capsule is made with pork gelatin or non zabiha beef gelatin. There should be no animal derived ingredients used in the capsule. You have to contact the manufacturer. If they said pork gelatin was used in capsule but no animal derived ingredients inside capsule. In that cas eyou take the inside medicine put in a spoon of apple sauce and consume it only if company said no animal derived ingredients used in the medicine.

  • Is there gelatin in NEW! Vita-Vim™ for Women 50+ Tablet - Ba quoin
  • AOA

    It is not Halal. From our Alert section:

    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.

    MUSLIMS ARE NOT PAYING ATTENTIONS TO HALAL VITAMINS

    Many Muslims are using non Halal vitamins from stores like Wal-Mart, Walgreen, CVS Pharmacy, GNC. This is because of lack of knowledge about the Halal status of those vitamins. MCG get every day a question from Muslims asking about the Halal status of xyz vitamins. MCG is providing help in picking up the Halal vitamins after it researched at Vitamin Shoppe stores which are located in every city of USA. MCG advises Muslims to check the Halal status of vitamins before consuming them.

    Many major brand of vitamins are not Halal such as: Centrum, Equate, Citracal, Nature Made, Vitafusion, One A Day, GNC, Flintstone, Nature Beauty, Walgreen, Geritol, Nature Bounty, Garliq, Estroven, Disney Gummies, Fiber Smart, Caltrale, Finest Nature, One Source, Lill Critteers, Culturelle, Philps, Ultimate Florea, Viactive, Elatins, Os-Cal, Spring Valley, Schiff, Stevia, Optimum Nutrition, Mega Red, Ocuvite, Alive, Centrum Kid, Active Kid, Spring Valley, Bayer, CVS Vitamins and Kirkland Signature. They are not Halal because they are not Halal or Kosher certified or do not have a Halal or Kosher symbol on the package.

    Even if they do not contain gelatin, they are still not Halal because they add without restriction any Haram hidden ingredient. Halal or Kosher certification protects Muslims from adding Haram Hidden or Processing Aid Ingredients which are not required to be mention under ingredients statement by FDA. MCG has a list of Halal multivitamins, individual vitamins, prenatal vitamins and fish oil or omega 3 on our website under "Vitamins". Please use this list of Halal vitamins. How to search Halal vitamins on our website: Please write vitamins or prenatal vitamins or fish oil (for Omega fish oil) under the search box then click Food Product by Category then click Show Only Halal then click search. You will get a list of 45 Halal vitamins, 3 Halal prenatal vitamins, 6 Halal fish oil (Omega fish oil) and where to buy them.

  • when taking about FD&C colours there is only information on yellow 5 and red 40, does this mean the rest are ok you use? - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    No, rest will not be Halal. I do not know what British regulation about artificial color. It is a USA's FDA regulations FD&C means Food Drug & Cosmetic Act. FD&C colors in USA are Halal only if they used as dry powder or granular. But liquid FD&C colors are mashbooh and Halal only if vegetable oil used as a sovent. If pork glycerin is used as a solvent then it is Haram.

    PAYING ATTENTIONS TO HALAL VITAMINS

    Many Muslims are using non Halal vitamins from stores like Wal-Mart, Walgreen, CVS Pharmacy, GNC. This is because of lack of knowledge about the Halal status of those vitamins. MCG get every day a question from Muslims asking about the Halal status of xyz vitamins. MCG is providing help in picking up the Halal vitaminsafter it researched at Vitamin Shoppe stores which are located in every city of USA. MCG advises Muslims to check the Halal status of vitamins before consuming them.

    Many major brand of vitamins are not Halal such as: Centrum, Equate, Citracal, Nature Made, Vitafusion, One A Day, GNC, Flintstone, Nature Beauty, Walgreen, Geritol, Nature Bounty, Garliq, Estroven, Disney Gummies, Fiber Smart, Caltrale, Finest Nature, One Source, Lill Critteers, Culturelle, Philps, Ultimate Florea, Viactive, Elatins, Os-Cal, Spring Valley, Schiff, Stevia, Optimum Nutrition, Mega Red, Ocuvite, Alive, Centrum Kid, Active Kid, Spring Valley, Bayer, CVS Vitamins and Kirkland Signature. They are not Halal because they are not Halal or Kosher certified or do not have a Halal or Kosher symbol on the package.

    Even if they do not contain gelatin, they are still not Halal because they add without restriction any Haram hidden ingredient.

  • As salamu alaykum wr wb. I had asked a question regarding Lakme beauty products yesterday, but you have misunderstood it to be Laxmi (the Hindu goddess) products instead. I received an email from your side stating that it is better not to use Laxmi products as they might contain the image of the goddess. Can you please help with my earlier question? Do Lakme products (beauty products) contain animal fat? Jazakallahu khairan - bint rehana
  • AOA

    This a Unilever product and there is no information about animal by products, alcohol in fragrance and carmine red color on their website.

    I requested them to inform about above so you have to wait.

  • As salamu alaykum wr wb. Are Lakmé products halal? It is an Indian brand, hence I did not find it in your website. Jazakallahu khair - bint rehana
  • AOA

    I will not recommend any Muslim to bring the Laxmi products with their God picture on the packag in any Muslim house where Quran reads every day or keep in the house. This is the reason you can not see thier products on my website.

    I do not care if Muslims critisize me for that reason. Because I believe that Muslim homes should be free from idols.

    You can ask the shop to remove the package and put the product is a bag. If you follow this then you can bring their Halal spices to your home.

  • Assalamu 'alaykom, Is Pears soap halal to use? especially the "Oil Clear Soap".. Also, if any cosmetic product contains najas ingredient -knowing it or not-, but is helpful to the skin.. can we use it and by rinsing with water, the najas is cleaned away.. so, we benefit from it and also clean any najas that might be in it.. is this correct or not? Also, is it khelaf? i.e. are there scholars who view alcohol as not najas? Jazakom Allah khairan - Dalia
