    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.

    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 have listened to recent lectures by scholars (like Dr Zakir Naik) and they said that alcohol is haram but not najis so you can still use it in perfumes or fragrances and pray with it. So is that argument valid(because you apply perfume on clothes)? - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    I do not agree with Dr. Naik and others who makes alcohol as Halal. No it is not valid. Ask them provide answer to this hadith:

    A little bit of intoxicant/Alcohol is haram too:

    Narrated Aisha, Ummul Muminin RA:

    I heard the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) say: Every intoxicant is forbidden; if a faraq of anything causes intoxication, a handful of it is forbidden. ( Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 26:Drinks (Kitab Al-Ashribah)

    Narrated Umm Salamah RA, Ummul Muminin RA:

    The Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) forbade every intoxicant and everything which produces languidness. (Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 28:Drinks (Kitab Al-Ashribah) 3678 )

  • Salaam alaikum, reminding you to contact this so we know if we can use it: (Question I sent you earlier) Salaam alaikum. On your site, Zest soap is considered as not halal for us to use. But on their Zest website, under FAQ, it says this: DO ZEST PRODUCTS CONTAIN ANIMAL INGREDIENTS? Zest products are kosher, but the tallow ingredient in our bar soap is derived from beef fat. You can go to www.zest.com to read it. Can we use it since the soap bars Irish Spring is also made from beef tallow. -[Anonymous user] (Your answer you wrote while back) AOA I called to their business office in Connecticut but lady was not there. If they said kosher then they should not use the word beef tallow. I do not think there is a kosher symbol on Zest bar soap. This confusing and has to be cleared out. The result will be published. - muslimah

  • AOA

    They are not Halal.

    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.

  • Assalamu Alaikum, I hope you are fine. I have a question about baby oils. I want to use Up&up baby oil distributed by Target Corp. Ingredients are Mineral Oil and Fragrance. So I asked them if the product contains alcohol or if it is used as a solvent in fragrance. They sent me an email saying that Up&up baby oil does not contain alcohol and animal derived ingredients. Is this enough to consider this product as halal? I would be thankful if you could let me know. Jazakallah - Anonymous user

  • Salaams , I recieved this email when I was enquiring about ingredients in urban decay makeup. I would like to assist you with your enquiry. The common everyday use and understanding of “alcohol” is in reference to the substance used in alcoholic beverages. The chemical name for this compound is either ethyl alcohol or ethanol. If the packaging states that “no alcohol”, it is in reference to ethyl alcohol. Whilst cetearyl alcohol and benzyl alcohol are in the chemical family of alcohols, neither ingredient is considered to be an “alcohol” under the common definition provided above. These ingredients have very different properties, uses and effects. Cetearyl alcohol is used for its skin conditioning properties and benzyl alcohol is a solvent used as part of the fragrance. Furthermore, as a general note, for those perfumes and cosmetics with ethanol/ethyl alcohol, the ethanol is not absorbed through the skin and thus does not have a systemic effect on the body. For further information please visit: http://www.thefactsabout.co.uk Some of our products may contain derivatives of sheep’s wool (LANOLIN - though no animal is sacrificed to obtain this) and some of our products also contain beeswax, honey or silk amino acids, fish products (collagen and oil) and fowl products (eggs and feather keratin). These can all be identified in the ingredients lists on each product. Some of our lipsticks however may contain carmine, which gives it its red colour from Carminic acid which is derived from insects. L’Oréal Group actively monitors all issues that could lead to questions concerning the safety of its products and the ingredients used in their manufacture. The ingredients are always strictly selected in observance of the legislations in effect, and are safe for consumers based on the most recent scientific knowledge. Moisturising foundations may contain lanolin (derivative of sheep’s wool) which can be used for its moisturising properties. So you may wish to use a foundation with no moisturising properties. All our ingredients are listed on our packaging can check the ingredients labelling to see whether it contains lanolin. Muslim consumer group, Would you be able to help me as to whether or not these are permissible for me to use? I know that carmine is not allowed but I am not sure about the other ingredients and alcohols. I have had a look through the site but I am confused. Kind Regards - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    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.
