  • 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. 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.

  • 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.

  • Please give me references from Quran and hadith,saying alcoholic perfume is Haram - Shojib Ahmed
  • AOA

    Please ask your Imam or any Islamic scholar for your question. Then why perfumes or Atar in Muslim countries are made without alcohol. It says on the label "NO ALCOHOL".

    Here is one hadith which you could find on FAQ Section  under Quran & Ahadith about subsection:

    A little bit of intoxicant/Alcohol is haram too:

    Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu�minin 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 Mu�minin 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 )

    Alcohol cannot be consumed as a medicine or for the remedy of cold climate:

     

    Narrated Tariq ibn Suwayd RA or Suwayd ibn Tariq RA:

    Wa�il RA said: Tariq ibn Suwayd RA or Suwayd ibn Tariq RA asked the Prophet (peace be upon him) about wine, but he ()forbade it. He again asked him(PUBH), but he() forbade him. He RA said to him(): Prophet of Allah(), it is a medicine. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: No it is a disease.( Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 28: Medicine (Kitab Al-Tibb)

    Narrated Daylam al-Himyari RA:

    I asked the Prophet (peace be upon him) and said: Apostle of Allah()! we live in a cold land in which we do heavy work and we make a liquor from wheat to get strength from if for our work and to stand the cold of our country. He()asked: Is it intoxicating I replied: Yes. He() said: You must avoid it. I said: The people will not abandon it. He() said: If they do not abandon it, fight with them.� ( Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 26: Drinks (Kitab Al-Ashribah)

    I have no information on it in India. You have to contact the manufacturer in India to ask whether it is made with animal dervied ingredients or not. Also is there any alcohol used in fragrance although it has no fragrance.

    The source above ingredients is known to manufacturer only no body knows about it.

  • Assalamu Alaikum, I recently contacted Colgate on their Speed Stick Deodorant products regarding which products are free of animal derived ingredients and alcohol. I only found that there are two products that are both free of animal ingredients and alcohol. They were Lady Speed Stick Products for women, but I am in search for mens deodorants that are both alcohol and animal ingredient free. (Note: If the alcohol for the deodorants is from a halal source it is fine to use). The question I have is how do I ask the manufacturer if the other deodorants (excluding the alcohol free Lady Speed Stick Products) that are free of animal derived ingredients have alcohol in them that is from a halal source? I can see from your search section that alot of the deodorants for speed stick do not have any animal derived ingredients, but there is not much information of whether the alcohol used in manufacturing is from a halal source. Could you please adivse?

For example, when looking to see if alcohol is used in a product, should we look for the word "alcohol" to be used in the ingredient list or are there other ingredients that may contain alcohol or that may be haram in a product that does not contain animal by-products.

    What are Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Butyl Alcohol, Lauryl and Oleyl Alcohol used in Personal Care Products. Are they Halal:

    All above alcohol are not Ethyl Alcohol but they are fatty alcohol or fatty waxes made from either animal fat such as pork fat or vegetable fat such as soy fat. Only manufacturer will know the source of these ingredients. If any personal care company says that no animal derived ingredients are used in their products containing above alcohols it means they are obtained from vegetable fat.

    MCG requests our sisters not use The Body Shop Cosmetic products

    MCG has contacted the Body Shop Company on August 30, 2013 and asked about reference number 63461 a e-mail received from The Body Shop by our sister Mrs. Ajmal and send to MCG (the e-mail is listed below). Beside her, other sisters also requested to inquire about the Halal status of The Body Shop cosmetic.

    Recently MCG received a request from The Body Shop to change the status of The Body Shop cosmetic from Non Halal to Halal.

    MCG did further investigation and asked The Body Shop whey their employee Milan Zivkovic wrote in reference number 63461 that they use gelatin. The company told MCG on August 30, 2013 that she wrote it wrong and she no longer with the company and said their company is supplying some vegetarian products since 2008. They use some non vegetarian ingredients such as beeswax, Honey, Silk and Cholesterol (which could be from milk or animal fat). The customer service is based in Slovenia in Europe.

    There is written contradiction of their claim that some of their products are made with gelatin which could be from pork or beef.

    So MCG requests our sisters not use The Body Shop Cosmetic products.

    To: A. Ajmal <a.ajm@>

    Dear Ms. Ajmal,

     Thank you for contacting The Body Shop online team.

     The Body Shop® is not a vegetarian or vegan company; however the vast majority of our products contain no animal derived ingredients.  We aim to avoid the use of animal-derived ingredients wherever possible and specify non-animal ingredients whenever there is a choice.  All our soaps, for example, use a vegetable base rather than the commonly used animal-fat base.  Gelatin, beeswax, honey, milk, shellac and lanolin are the only product ingredients knowingly used by The Body Shop® which do not comply with the most current definition of Vegan.  Where synthetic forms or derivatives of these materials are available, such as lactic acid, these are always specified for our formulations.  We do not use the ingredient "carmine" in our product formulations.  

    With utmost certainty we can tell you that the Raspberry Born Lippy balm is 100% vegan product.

     Should you need further assistance with this matter, please do not hesitate to contact us.  Thank you once again for contacting The Body Shop.  I hope you find the level of service provided to you via this correspondence satisfactory.  If you are not satisfied or need immediate assistance, please feel free to contact our Customer Care Center at:  1-800-263-9746.

     Kindest regards,

    From Alert:

    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, what islam says about non food haramproducts to use for muslims? Some fatwa says if soap or cleaner contains animal fat or alcohol , are allowed to use, as we rinse out them.and here's no problem..what's the truth? Can u show prove against that from saheeh hadith? I'm really confused. Is lux soap, dove beauty bar soap halal? Jazakumullah khayr. - Ahliya walid

    I am not a mufti but a food scientist, I know we have porous wholes in our body where any liquid can into eat. I have disccused it in FIqah and Science about bar soap. Please contact a well educated Mufti saheb.

    Bar Soap

    PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL CHANGES (TABDEELE MAHIYA) DURING THE PROCESSING OF PORK GELATIN AND BAR SOAPS MADE FROM PIG FAT

    There is lot of discussion among Muslims living in western countries about physical and chemical changes of Haram raw materials during the manufacturing of food products, such as Type A gelatin from pig source, or emulsifiers such as Mono & Diglycerides from pork fat and personal care items such as bar soaps made from pork fat or glycerin. Several Muslims are quoting Fatwa?s (Fatwa is a legal statement in Islam, issued by a Mufti or a religious lawyer, on a specific issue) which were issued 50-60 years back, to justify to consume or use them due to physical and chemical changes occur during their processing.

    There is no doubt about the following physical and chemical changes or Tabdeele Mahiya of Haram raw material to Halal products. This includes production of vinegar from alcohol, falling of pig in a salt mine and becoming part of salt mine, bone char, tanning of dead animal skin. These Tabdeele Mahiya cases are acceptable to majority of Islamic scholars.

    But few things such as vinegar from wine, pig gelatin, bar soaps made with pork fat are not acceptable according to scientific facts and opinions of several Islamic scholars. Since some of the fatwa?s are issued 50-60 years back, it seems that no assistance from Muslim scientists was used to check it out scientifically.

    Requirements for Tabdeele mahiya are (1) complete change from originality to new things which are not present in the original material (2) change in the name (3) Complete conversion of basic components of a raw material to a complete new product containing new components and several others. The common understanding about change in the original status is that it should not contain original components. Some Islamic scholars do not pay attention to this fact and consider that any chemical changes or reactions result in a new composition, which is not true. Let us discuss this in detail:

    Bar soap from Pig fat and other fat based ingredients:

    Bar soaps are made from animal fat or vegetable oils or their fatty acids by reacting them with inorganic water-soluble alkali salt or bases. The source of fat is mutton or beef tallow or pork fat but glycerin is also added besides stearic acid (fat based).

    The animal fat or vegetable oil is made of distinctive mixture of several different triglycerides. A triglyceride molecule consists of one molecule of glycerin to which three fatty acid molecules are attached, and these fatty acids are specific to different type of triglycerides. Fatty acids are the basic components of any fat. During manufacturing of bar soaps, fats or oil are heated with liquid alkali, such as sodium hydroxide or caustic soda or potassium hydroxide or caustic potash to yield neat soap, water and glycerin. This process is known as saponification of fat or oil. During this process, the basic components fatty acids are transferred without change in its composition from triglyceride to alkali making neat soap (combination of alkali and fatty acid). Neutralization with alkali is also used to produce neat soap. The neat soap is dried and made into pellets, then glycerin and other ingredients are added, and then mixture is extruded to make bar soaps. If the bar soap is made from pork fat then nothing happens to its basic components fatty acids, it remains as it is, same as in pork fat. So bar soap manufacturing process is not the example of Tabdeele Mahiya. The emulsifiers and mono and diglycerides also fall under this category.

    On the other hand in manufacturing of distilled white vinegar, dilute ethyl alcohol is converted to acetic acid, water, and a very minute amount of unconverted dilute ethyl alcohol. Tabdeele Maheyia applies here in the case of dilute ethyl alcohol, which is converted to new material acetic acid and water by acetobacter bacteria. The name is changed from dilute ethyl alcohol to vinegar. Distilled white vinegar is Halal but raw material ethyl alcohol is not Halal.

    In the case of wine vinegar, the table wine contains 12.2% ethyl alcohol by volume or 9.9% by weight, 85% water, 4% carbohydrate, 0.1% protein and volatile wine flavoring compounds. In wine, only alcohol is subjected for change by acetobacter bacteria to acetic acid and water. So wine vinegar contains acetic acid, water and rest of the above thing, unconverted small amount of wine and wine flavors which are the result of wine making. Imam Shaafi RA does not consider it as Halal. Presence of unconverted wine, wine flavoring compounds are the scientific basis for its not being consider as Halal.

    Liquid raw materials are best suitable for Tabdeele Mahiya compare to solids. So it is very important to use scientific facts in deciding the Tabdeele Mahiya of Haram raw materials for the processing of food products, food ingredients and personal care items.

  • i found a face wash online, its name includes "wine face wash." However after searching the internet i found that it contains grape extract 1.oo% in its key ingredients and there is a note on it which says "This Product does not contain any alcohol or Liquor based product." Please tell me whether its hala or haram. - ashkar
