  • Assalaamualaikum. Sir, I request you to please please visit your motherland India at least for 3 months. I feel ashamed that we don't have any proper or working Halal Department in India. As we know, there are more than 250 million Muslims living here.They are consuming Haraam products everyday. Please come to India, talk to the companies and make a Halal list for Muslims and go. We need some intellectuals like you. Nobody cares for Halal and Haram products here except for a few. Please change our lives. Jazak Allahu Khairan - Syed Muteeb
  • Assalam O Alaikum Brother Muteeb Saheb,

    Thank for invitation to come to India and live 3 months. Although I have two brothers who are living in Hyderabad. Last time I was in Hyderabad in 1988 to see my father who passed away.

    There are one Halal certifying organization in Kerala, one in Maharashtra are not they helping Muslims?.

    Currently I am helping Halal Sign Organization New Delhi who are sending samples to out side lab for pork, alcohol analysis but they are not food scientists. Let see how they come up.

    Honestly like in USA, Indian Halal certifying organizations are want to make money by charging to food company but I do not know hown Halal symbol carrying food prdoducts in India. MCG's  number one goal is to educate all Muslims about Halal foods without compansation. Halal certification is a secondary goal to earn some money for our organization. I do not charge anything to educate Muslims.

    Since I am still recovering from my foot surgery, Inshallah I will work hard to add as much as I can Food Products in India under Indian Food subsection.

    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.

  • AOA

    I do not know their Halal criteria so I can not answer. There are two kind of soya sauces in USA and Canada but I do not know in other countries. Here USA made soya sauces from our FAQ:

    What are the ingredients of Haram Soy Sauce in USA:

    The Naturally Brewed Soy is the Haram soy sauce. It is made just like wine containing 2-3% alcohol. The ingredients list contains Wheat, Soy and other ingredients. Food companies do not mention Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce under the ingredients statement. They just mention soy sauce but within parenthesis they write Wheat and Soy. This is the only way to find a Haram Soy Sauce.

    What are the ingredients of Halal Soy Sauce in USA:

    All purpose soy sauce or non naturally brewed soy sauce is a Halal soy sauce made from water, salt, hydrolyzed soy protein, corn syrup and sodium benzoate. La Choy All Purpose Soy sauce is a Halal Soy Sauce.

  • As-salamu 'alaikum wa rahmatullah my dear brothers, My question is concerning the process by which you determine if the meat of ahlul kitab is halal. The Quran states: Today I have made permissible for you pure things and the food of those who were given the Book (Ahlul-Kitaab) is also Halal for you'. (Quran Al-Maida 5:4) So eating their meat is permissible. However, the MCG does not consider kosher meat in the U.S. to be Halal because they do not pronounce the name of Allah upon all the animals for slaughter. But, this is not an obligation that the Jew or Christian has to pronounce the name of Allah in order for it to be considered halal. I think MCG is following the opinion of the Hanafi madhab but to my knowledge the Maliki madhab does not hold the view that Allah's name does not have to be pronounced. Please give me a reference from an ulema because Sheikh Ibn Baz and Ibn Uthaimeen have given the fatwa that Muslims can eat the meat of Ahlul Kitab in the west without asking if Allah's name was said before slaughter. Why does MCG not take this position on kosher meat? Jazakumallahu khairan - Basit Khan
  • AOA

    MCG do not consider meat of Ahlekitab as Halal because they do not follow same rules as used to follow during the times of our Prophet Sayyidina Mohammed Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallum. The ayat is basis on pure and tayub foods. Current meat of Ahlekitab is not consider Tayub because Rabbi do not pronounce name the Allah on each animal at time of slaughtering. Christian slaughter house ask their Hindu or Bhudist emplyee to slaughter the animal. Christian do not know they have to slaughter in the name of Allah. Pig is also slaughtered on the same line processed so there is possiblility of contamination.

    All our Ulema or Islamic Scholars are Hanafi and MCG follows Hanafi fiqah.

    You can follow Sheik Ibn Baz and Uthaimeen Fatwa but MCG and I will never follow that fatwa.

    The are many Muslims who are living in USA for last 50-60 years but they never buy meat from supermarkets. I personally do not eat any non zabiha meat for long time.

    THERE IS NO MEAT OR MEAT BY PRODUCT MENTIONED ON OUR WEBSITE UNDER HALAL STATUS EXCEPT FISH. MCG IS NOT IN HALAL MEAT CERTIFICATION.

    So where you got this idea about meat of Ahlekitab on our website.

    Please the keep the fatwa to yourself and pleas do not spoil other Muslims. Inshallah we will not promote this fatwa on our website.

  • Assalaamualaikum. Recently I had sent a letter to P&G India regarding alcohol used in Head and Shoulders Shampoo. After a few days, I got a reply letter from them------ "1. The alcohol we use in our shampoo and conditioner is a ‘fatty alcohol’ and actually helps to lock in moisture. These fatty alcohols may be listed on the ingredient statement as Cetyl, Stearyl, Myristyl or Behenyl or Ethyl.These ingredients are completely different to the alcohols found in alcoholic drinks; they are not specified as alcohols and in fact they are usually solids i.e. fatty alcohols. Most of our fatty alcohol is synthetic and comes from petroleum; however, it can also come from coconut oil and from animal tallow (beef or pork).'' ----------------------------And from your website, I came to know that alcohol in cosmetics is Halal. So, is Head and Shoulders still Halal?? Jazak Allahu Khairan. - Syed Muteeb

  • CVS produced multivitamin seems contain gelatin (bovine & porcine).Can we consider as Halal? Kind regards. - anowarul Haque
  • 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.

    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.
