  • I had emailed you previously regarding the status of Mango frooti From Parle in India and raised a point to verify the validity of your support for it being halal had given all the ingredients and green dot visibility as well but in response what i receive is that MCG Halal status is based on a e-mail from brother Syed: Brother N Syed has send this e-mail from India to MCG: Dear Navdel, Yes, it is product of India & it does not contain alcohol. It is non alcoholic ready to serve beverage. For any further query, please write back to us. Best Regards, Manoj Sawant Parle Agro Pvt. Ltd. Mumbai, India but its mentioned on your site that flavours should also not be alcohol driven so i presume there is a difference in drink being alcoholic or its flavour driven from ethyl something...idk anyways please look into this or else you can at least give me the email id of navdel (the one upon whom you are relying) so that i may discuss it with him - Syed Areeb
  • AOA

    Please read this below we ask all Muslim consumers to send this message of inquiry about hidden in alcohol to food manufacturer because they are the only one who know whether alcohol is added as hidden ingredient to flavor or not. Br. Syed same question to Parle and he got the answer that no alcohol is used in flavor. Flavor can be made without alcohol. So if companies said no alcohol in flavor then the flavor is Halal.

     

    " is ethanol or ethyl alcohol used as a solvent in flavor; ethanol or ethyl alcohol is a hidden ingredient or processing aid ingredient of a flavor, it will not appear in the ingredients statement. The knowledge of presence or absence of ethanol or ethyl alcohol in flavor is only known to your QA or Technical service department because they have access to the specification of flavors. In the specification of flavor, your flavor supplier has written  the name of solvent or carrier used in that particular flavor. So please request your QA or Technical service department to find out whether ethanol or ethyl alcohol was used or not in the flavor as a solvent".

  • bread is having alcoholic fermentation then why it is halal? - mubashra
  • AOA

    None of the ingredients except flavor used in bread making contain alcohol. The yeast is responsible for fermentaion of sugar obtained from carbohydrate or added to the fprmula. Yeast itself is Halal and do not contain alcohol it is a natural live organism. During proofing of bread dough the yeast secrete an which called Zymase which itself do not have alcohol but it breaks the sugar to produce carbon dioxide and alcohol. This is a natural process and this very small amount of alcohol is considered Halal similarly all fruits and vegetables developed a very small amount of alcohol during ripening process which is a natural process created by Allah. All fruits and vegetable we eat every day are Halal so does the bread is Halal if it is made with all Halal ingredients.

    haram Trident Gums   Chewing Gums Trident Hi Rasheed, Thank you for visiting http://www.snackworks.com/. I wanted to get back to you about your ingredient questions. I understand that knowing what ingredients are in the food products you eat directly affect how you practice your religion/dietary lifestyle, and Mondelez International does all that it can to assist its consumers in making educated food decisions. I apologize but unfortunately this ingredient information is not currently available. As you can imagine our products change frequently, and maintaining a list of products for specific dietary practices would be virtually impossible. The suppliers from which we obtain the natural flavoring will not reveal the exact ingredients to us, as they consider it to be proprietary. They only have to reveal if their natural flavoring contains major allergens. Some gums contain gelatin which is made from collagen, a protein that comes from animals used for food, like beef or pork. The exact source of the gelatin used in our products cannot be easily determined because the hide used in our products can be from both beef and pork. When alcohol is used in our products in a significant amount or has a technical effect it will be labeled on the ingredient line. However, if alcohol is present in a minute amount it will not be listed. I appreciate you contacting us. Consumer Services Mondelez International ~~TLXEA_25066145~~N 01-24-15

    From our News section:

    New TitleDescriptionDate
    NOT ALL ALCOHOL ARE HARAM

    Ethyl alcohol is Haram because of its intoxication quality. But not all alcohol are ethyl alcohol although word alcohol is written with their name. Here are some examples:

    1. Sugar alcohols do not contain ethyl alcohol but they called sugar alcohol because of their chemical formula. Sugar Alcohols or Polyols are carbohydrate(plant source). All the sugar alcohols are Halal except Erythritol(made through alcoholic fermentation) and if Lactittol is made from non Halal whey then it is not Halal. But if Lactitol is made from sucrose then it is Halal.

    2. Benzyl Alcohol is a organic compound and used as solvent in ink, paint, resin coating. It is a Halal alcohol.

    3. Butyl alcohol is not ethyl alcohol and used as solvent in paints

    4. Cetyl alcohol is also not ethyl alcohol but a fatty alcohol or wax and it is Halal only if it is obtained from vegetable fat and it is a Haram ingredient if it is obtained from pork fat. It is used in cosmetic products. The manufacturer of cosmetic is the only one who know the source of cetyl alcohol. So you have to call the manufacturer.

    5. Stearyl Alcohol is manufactured from fat based stearic acid and it is not ethyl alcohol. It is also used in cosmetic products. it is Halal only if it is obtained from vegetable fat based stearic acid and it is a Haram ingredient if it is obtained from pork fat. It is used in cosmetic products. The manufacturer of cosmetic is the only one who know the source of stearyl alcohol. So you have to call the manufacturer.

    Sugar Alcohols

     

    Sugar Alcohols

    Sugar alcohols or Polyols are carbohydrates. Many Muslim consumers has asked us about Halal status of sugar alcohols in Questions and Answers section of our website. We answered them in the above section. So we decided to explain about them in News section of our website. The sugar alcohols are made from plant carbohydrates except Lactitol which can be made from sucrose or whey's lactose or milk sugar  and all the sugar alcohols are Halal  except Erythritol and if Lactittol  is made from non Halal whey then it is not Halal. But if Lactitol is made from sucrose then it is Halal. There is no ethyl alcohol present in them. Alcohol is just the name because of chemical formulas. FDA recognized sugar alcohols as GRAS(Generally Recognized As Safe). Sugar alcohols are not artificial sweeteners technically and slightly lower in calories compare to sugar. The most important use of them is in chewing gums, sugar free candiaes and cookies because they do not cause tooth decay and good for diabetes because on consuming them the blood sugar will not increase. The most important sugar alcohols are Sorbitol or Glucitol, Xylitol, Lactitol, Mannitol, Maltitol, Hydrogenated Starch Hydrolysates, Isomalt, . No bone char is used in sugar alcohols as compare to sugar. Sugar alcohols are slow fermented carbohydrate than sugar. Sugar alcohols are not fermented by oral bacteria in mouth, this is determind by FDA through McNail company’s research. Sorbitol, Mannitol, Maltitol and Hydrogenated Starch Hydrolysates are manufactured from cornstarch. Xylitol is manufactured from corn cobs, sugar cane bagasse, birch wood waste.

    Lactitol is made from sucrose and whey. When Lactitol is manufactured from sweet whey then we have to be very careful about it. Whey has to be Halal or kosher certified otherwise Lactitol will not be Halal if it is manufactured from sweet whey which is obtained from animal rennet whey. Even if it is obtained from acid whey the starter culture bacteria and starter culture media upon the bacteria grow has to be Halal. If a Halal or kosher symbol appears on a food product package containing Lactitol, it means lactitol is either made from sucrose or Halal or kosher certified whey.

    Erythritol is obtined either cornstarch or fruits through alcoholic fermentation because there is no lactic acid ferementation to be Halal. Sugar alcohol Erythritol is not consider Halal.

    Lactitol is considered as Mushbooh and depond upon the Halal or kosher status of rennet whey and acid whey.

    Please do not follow because does not know how gelatin is made. Please ask him about his opinion about alcohol from 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 )

    From our Fiqah & Science subsection from FAQ section:

     

    Gelatin

    Gelatin is not the case of Tabdeele Mahiya.

    There is lot of literature available about how gelatin is made, which can be found on the internet. But we have to understand the basic biochemistry of gelatin raw material and gelatin itself. The basic components of collagen (raw material for gelatin) and gelatin itself are the protein and amino acids. If the components of the raw material and finished product is the same, that means the chemical reaction and processing does not cause any changes to the original component. Then it does not become the case for Tabdeele Mahiya.

    • If you run a DNA analysis (nowadays it is used to detect pig by-products in a food product developed by a Florida company as mentioned on our web site) of Type A gelatin (pig) and Pig, you will find no difference. According to Tabdeele Mahiya, it should not match because the new product has to be different.
    • Gelatin is a derived water-soluble protein made by controlled hydrolytic conversion of collagen, the protein constituent of white fibrous connective tissue from animals. The manufacturing process will take out the extraneous material from bones, skin, and hide trimming. Neutralizing, washing and converting the collagen to gelatin occurs but the basic components remain the same.
    • Extensive study has shown that the amino acid (basic component) content of white connective tissue whether from bone, skin or tendon is very uniform and yields gelatins also having uniform amino acid composition. This confirms that no change has occurred in the basic components.
    • The gelatin is subject to hydrolytic breakdown by which it is converted from insoluble macromolecular collagen to water soluble protein.
    • The whole manufacturing process is based on purification and conversion of water insoluble collagen protein to water soluble gelatin. There is no new product, and the originality of gelatin raw material remains the same during manufacturing process.

    Gelatin is not an example of Tabdeele Mahiya. Type A gelatin (pig) is Haram because it still contains the original pig protein and amino acids.

     

    Alcohol from our Ingredients section under Ingredients description:

     

    Alcohol:

    Alcohol (also known as Ethanol or Ethyl Alcohol) is a food but requires no digestion. Like other drugs, it acts on many organs in the body but has no cellular receptors. It is stable in the atmosphere to any chemical change, where as all other foods will undergo some kind of decomposition. It is the only food produced solely by microbial action beside the synthetic alcohol. Alcohol and water mix in every solution, including blood. Once alcohol enters the body, it is easily penetrated into the brain and it will provide a sequential depressant action on the central nervous system. We know this fact from our Holy Book, the Quran, where Allah says: O ye who believe! Draw not near unto prayer when you are in a state of intoxication until you know what you utter (4:43). Use of alcohol in a food product is prohibited.

    Ethanol or alcohol has the quality of making a person drunk. If alcohol is distilled out from wine or beer, a flavored solution is left behind. That solution does not have the same quality as alcohol resulting in the sequential depressant action on the central nervous system. Date juice is allowed to drink before it is fermented as reported in Sahee Bukhari. Thus the prohibition of alcoholic beverages in Islam is due to the presence of alcohol in those beverages. Many Muslim scientists wrote about alcohol in many books and magazines. They all agreed that alcohol is Haram without even mentioning the sources.. Alcohol is produced through alcoholic fermentation of material containing sugar or starch. Starch first has to breakdown into sugar and sugar is then fermented by yeast which converts it into ethyl alcohol or ethanol and carbon dioxide (CO2). Molasses from sugar cane, beet sugar, wood sugar (sulphite lye), fruits, berries are the raw material used to produce alcohol. Starchy products such as cereal, rice, corn and potato are also used as a raw material to produce alcohol. Alcohol obtained from fermentation is subject to separation, concentration and distillation. The chemical name of alcohol is ethanol and C2H5OH is the chemical formula. So alcohol obtained from above sources has the same chemical formula and has the same quality of providing a sequential depressant action on the central nervous system. There is no chemical and physical difference between alcohols obtained from grape or corn. So the statement that alcohol is Haram only from grape and dates does not hold up scientifically.

     

    Please forward above to the Shaik he may learn the science of gelatin and Alcohol.

  • Asalam Alaykum. I will like to commend your efforts in educating the Muslims. I had raised a query before on perfumes containing Alcohol and you responded quoting a hadith from the Book of Ashribah (Book of Drinks). Please note that a perfume is not a drink and a hadith legislating on drinks (intoxicants) cannot be used as evidence against fragrances just because they contain a product that intoxicates. You also mentioned that anyone who prays with a fragrance containing Alchohol, that person's salat will not be accepted. There is no evidence for this in the Sunnah. Note again that Allah only prohibited whatever that intoxicates (meaning whatever you drink that makes you unaware of your actions). This is haram even if taken in small quantity. Alchohol in itself is not prohibited except when drunk in whatever quantity. A fragrance (soap, cream, perfume) does not intoxicate when applied on the body. I have also reconfirmed from my Imam who is knowledgeable in this matters that fragrance containing Alcohol is not haram as it does not intoxicate and it does not affect a person's prayers. I hope you will research further and take this as constructive feedback so Muslims are not misinformed. We should not make haram for ourselves what Allah has not made haram for us. and Allah knows best. - Salahuddin
  • AOA

    When pig is consider Haram and used in food but any part of pig is Haram. Pig oil is prohibited to put on the doors we do not eat door. Pig part can not be used in shoes we do not eat shoes. This is the same way when some thing declared Haram

    in Quran and ahadith it does not mean only food but it means in everything. Since alcohol is a intoxicant and it said in a hadith that all intoxicant are Haram. It does not mean specillay in drink it means in everything including the fragrance.

     

    What is evident is that khamr [alcoholic beverage] is considered najis [impure] in the Four schools:

    1. the Hanafi, as stated in Zuhayli's al-Fiqh al-Islami wa adillatuh (Islamic Law and Its Proofs 6:158) whereby if there is a coin's span of khamr on one's clothing, his salat is invalid because Allah named khamr "a filth of Satan's handiwork, therefore avoid it" (5:90).
    2. the Maliki, as stated by Ibn Rushd in Bidayat al-mujtahid (2:125); also the Risala states, in Chapter 44: "Nothing alcoholic, or ritually impure, or a dead body or something Allah Most High has prohibited can be used for medicinal purposes."
    3. the Shafi`i, whereby khamr is also considered najis as per Nawawi in al-Majmu` 2:569-570 (from Ghazali);
    4. and the same applies in the Hanbali school: Ibn Qudama, al-Mughni (9:152).

    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 Kirkland Signature and Herballife. They are not Halal because they are not Kosher certified or do not have a Kosher symbol on the package (if Kosher certification meets the Halal requirements because not every Kosher certified food product is Halal).

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

    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.

  • if alcohol evaporates during the process of making a product whether food or a drink or whatever then what's your proof that it is haram? - elmedin
  • AOA

    According to MCG ulema if alcohol touches Halal ingredients then they loose their Halal status. Who can provide evidence that alcohol is evaporated. A USDA study showed that 40% of alcohol in a cooking wine remained after a tuna casserole baked at 400 degree for one hour. So baking or cooking does not evaporate alcohol completely.

     

    MCG follows 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 ).

  • AOA

    There are two vanilla. One which you saw is a natural vanilla which is not Halal because alcohol is used to extract vanilla flavor in concentration from vanilla beans. So Vanilla< Vanilla ice Cream and vanilla milk is not Halal if they make from natural vanilla. The second is called Vanillin or artificial vanilla which is Halal because no alcohol is used in its production. There is one Halal vanilla ice cream which is made with vanillin but it is not available at retail. It is available for food service.

    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 Kirkland Signature and Herballife. They are not Halal because they are not Kosher certified or do not have a Kosher symbol on the package (if Kosher certification meets the Halal requirements because not every Kosher certified food product is Halal).

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

    Vitamins: What make them Haram or Non Halal

    The following factors make Vitamins as Haram or Non Halal:

    1. Gelatin:

    Gelatin listed under ingredients statement or part of the capsule makes vitamins

    as Haram if gelatin was obtained from pork or Non Halal if it was obtained from non zabiha beef.

    Only Fish gelatin is Halal and it should be mentioned under ingredients statement.

    The capsules must be made with cellulose to be consider Halal.

    2. Magnesium Stearate:

    Magnesium Stearate is helps in flowing the other ingredients and is a fat based emulsifier and it could be obtained either from pork fat or vegetable fat. Only vegetable fat Magnesium Stearate is consider Halal.

    3. Hidden Ingredients or Processing Aid Ingredients:

    Every vitamin is made with Hidden Ingredients or Processing Aid Ingredients because FDA allows manufacturer to add a maximum of 2% of formula as Hidden Ingredients or Processing Aid Ingredients. FDA also allows manufacturer not to mentioned under the ingredients statement. The hidden or processing aid ingredients must be from Halal sources.

    Halal or Kosher symbol on the vitamins package protects Muslims from added Haram Hidden Ingredients or Processing Aid Ingredients.

    4. Coating on Vitamins:

    Pharmaceutical glaze, vegetable beet glaze, Shellac, Lac Resin are used to coat the vitamin tablets to protect them from breaking. All glazes are made by dissolving insect secretion Shellac in alcohol and applying the glaze on the tablets. So please do not buy the vitamins with coating.

    5. Extracts:

    Many source of vitamins are also obtained from plant extracts such as Bioperine (black pepper fruit extract), Tomato Extract (lycopene), Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract and Panax Ginseng Root Extract. They become Non Halal if alcohol was used as a solvent. It is better to avoid those vitamins with extract otherwise you have to call the manufacturer to find out whether alcohol was used as a solvent or not. Most of the time alcohol is used for extraction from plants.

    6. Natural Flavor:

    Alcohol might be used as a solvent in natural flavor so it is better to avoid consuming vitamins with natural flavors. Majority of natural flavors are made with vanilla. If vanilla is used as a natural flavor then the natural flavor will not be Halal.

    7. Chewable Vitamins:

    All chewable vitamins specially for kids are made with natural flavor. You have to contact the manufacturer whether alcohol was used as a solvent or not.

    8. Ingredients where alcohol was used during its processing and they are added to vitamins:

    Alcohol is used during the manufacturing of some ingredients such as Stevia which is a natural sweetener called Steviol Glycol. It is extracted from Stevia plant by water but crystallized it by use of ethyl alcohol.

  • AOA

    From our FAQ:

    FD&C yellow No. 5 or FD&C red No. 40 colors

    FD&C yellow No. 5 or FD&C red No. 40 are chemical dyes or lakes and they are Halal if used in pure granular or powder form but if the FD&C colors are required to make it in liquid form then a solvent is needed to make FD&C colors in liquid form. Liquid FD&C colors are used in liquid foods such as soft drinks. Vegetable oil or glycerin is used to make liquid artificial colors. Liquid FD&C colors are Halal only if vegetable oil or soy fat based glycerin is used. If glycerin is obtained from pork fat then liquid FD&+C colors will be Haram. A Halal or Kosher symbol (which meet the Islamic dietary requirements) appears on a food package containing these colors indicates that no pork or beef fat glycerin was used as a solvent.

  • I have read some of your responses where in many cases a product is considered haram if it contains Alchohol. May i please know the basis for this conclusion? Allah did not forbid Alchohol in the Quran. What is forbidden is anything that intoxicates. Alchohol intoxicates when drunk but Alcohol does not intoxicate when used as perfume, soap, cream etc. I will appreciate your revert on the basis of your conclusions. My imam has preached that perfume made from Alchohol is halal as long as it is not taken as a drink. - Salahuddin Shonibare
  • AOA

    Those who preached such thing that alcohol is evaporated, alcohol is in very minute amount that it will intoxicate you. Those argument are 100% wrong compared to this Hadith which MCG follows:

    "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 ).

    Alcohol is intoxicant. If you take all alcohol from a wine then drink it you will not intoxicated. Alcohol was discovered by a Muslim Iranian chemist at the time of Imam Hajrat Abu Hanifa RA. Please read Quran Carefully.:"

     

    All Intoxicants (alcohol, drugs, etc.) are forbidden:

    "O ye who believe! intoxicants and gambling, (dedication of) stones, and (divination by) arrows, are an abomination,- of Satan's handwork: eschew such (abomination), that ye may prosper. "
    ( Translation of سورة المائدة , Al-Maeda, Chapter #5, Verse #90).

    [Quran 2:219] They ask you about intoxicants and gambling: say, 'In them there is a gross sin, and some benefits for the people. But their sinfulness far outweighs their benefit.'

    [Quran 5:90] O you who believe, intoxicants, and gambling, and the altars of idols, and the games of chance are abominations of the devil; you shall avoid them, that you may succeed.

  • AOA

    People who developed Halal Scaner do not have degree in Food Sciene never work in food plant or in a food company. They are not qualified to tell Muslims what is Halal and what is not Halal. They do not know food products are made with Hidden ingredients up to 2% of the formula. Entemanns Little Bite is made with hidden alcohol in flavor so they are not Halal.

    Here the example for how they recommending Not Halal products as Halal to Muslims because lot of knowledge.

    They are doing dis service to Muslims Ummah by providing wrong information. These people are computer engineers and have no experience knowledge about food.

     

    Convenience your friends to ask Ummah Lab what qualification in food they have to tell Muslims this is Halal and that is not Halal. They can not assign Halal status on the basis of answers from food companies who do not the Halal criteria and on the basis ingredients list of food products even ingredients have hidden ingredient in them. Example Beta Carotene a color ingredient has hidden gelatin in it. Even they do not know.

  • Many people are saying many about kfc chicken Is it is halal ? - Muhamed Abdu Rahiman NZ
  • AOA

    No they are not Halal because they are machine slaughtered.

    UK: Muslim scholars reject machine slaughtered meat as Halal

    Courtesy of www.halalfocus.com Date June 27, 2012

    Filed in Europe, Halal Integrity, Meat & Poultry, Retail, UK on 27/06/2012 with no comments

    By Naumaan Farooq, Asian Express

    After scholars unanimously rejected machine slaughtered meat as being halal, calls have been made for a top fast food outlet to stop mislabelling its chicken ‘halal.’

    Around 40 of the country’s leading Islamic Scholars have called on fast food giant KFC to stop selling their meat as halal which they say is slaughtered using machines.

    At a conference at the Hijaz Centre, Nuneaton some of the countries most respected Imams passed a vote saying machine slaughtered chickens were not halal because the prescribed holy words needed to be said on each individual bird.

    July last year, KFC had 92 ‘halal’ outlets in the UK and many Muslims now feel their food is not killed in accordance with the proper Islamic method. The issue is whether meat can be halal if it has been slaughtered using mechanical methods which scholars said was not allowed.

    Traditionally, halal meat is killed by hand and must be blessed by the person doing the job. But some Muslims say a mechanised form is also now acceptable.

    Speaking at the conference one of the scholars said: “Machine slaughter of animals is totally not allowed in Islam. The prescribed holy words should be said on every animal and not just one.

    “Here we have a scenario when one person just flicks a switch and hundreds of chickens die, that’s not Islamic.”

    Halal is the description of food and drink Muslims are allowed to consume under Islamic dietary laws defined in the Quran and in the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).

    Classifying of halal food can only be carried out by a Muslim expert in the laws.

    The meat is traditionally prepared by slaughtering the animal with a quick cut to the throat with a sharp knife to allow all blood to drain out, the idea being that the meat is cleaner. The slaughterman is required to say the traditional proclamation of faith in one god as the animal is killed.

    At present two separate organisations regulate the halal food industry in the UK. The Halal Food Authority (HFA) says using machines is OK, as long as the meat is still blessed. It argues that advances in technology mean methods have to change and though a machine does the killing, the meat is still blessed by a Muslim slaughterman.

    But the Halal Monitoring Committee (HMC) says animals should be slaughtered by hand and using a machine is not halal and not permissible. It argues mechanisation contradicts a fundamental principle of halal – that the person who slaughters the animal is the same person who recites the words over it.

    KFC says it is following the guidance offered by what it considers a reputable adviser.

    At a meeting with the fast food outlet’s representatives two years ago it was confirmed to the Lancashire Council for Mosques that KFC’s chickens were stunned and mechanically slaughtered

    The sub group expressed concerns about the mechanical slaughtering of animals and told KFC that the Muslim Council of Britain supported their position.

    The meeting concluded that KFC’s Halal Supply Chain did not fulfil the LCM Halal criteria and therefore cannot be termed as halal.

    Naved Syed, Member of Eblex Halal Steering Group and responsible for organising the conference in Nuneaton said: “We need to resolve this matter as quickly as possible.

    “The problem with machine slaughter is you cannot perform Tasmiah (Holy prayer) on each animal when you machine killing 20,000 chickens an hour.

    “All of these issues need to be addressed especially on the subject of machine slaughter by the religious authorities.

    “With over 40 Muftis and Imams having made the decision it will enable us to lay the foundation for halal here in the UK.

    “With Ramadan just around the corner this problem needs to be resolved as quickly as possible.”

    Speaking in a recent interview Yunus Dudhwala, chairman of HMC, said: “Halal is a very sacred part of a Muslim’s diet and many Muslims do not even know what they are eating when it’s certified as halal in this way.”

  • Hello, as a bodybuilder I use some nutritions like protein and similar products. So I asked the company where Im buying the products this: - "I would like to know something about your producits that contain Xanthan Gum. Is the Isopropyl Alcohol (used during the processing of Xantham Gum) taken out completely or not?" They answered this: - "Isopropyl alcohol limit is 750 ppm which is also by halal considered as alcohol free." **And now I would like to know can you tell me is this product halal or haram? Best regards! - Enes Djurovic
  • AOA

    It is not Halal because Isopropyl alcohol is not a Halal ingredient. You can buy Halal Nutriobio's unflavored whey protein Isolate which give 25 grams protein for muscle building.

  • Are the mono & diglycerides from Kirkland halal specifically in their muffins? Are the mono & diesters of fatty acids from Kirkland in their muffins halal or do they come from am animal source? - Ali
  • AOA

    From our FAQ:

    What is Mono and Diglycerides:

    Mono and Diglycerides are fat based emulsifier and are made by reacting glycerol (fat based) with fats and oils. Mono and diglycerides can be made from beef, pork, or soybean fat. Only soybean or zabiha slaughtered cow fat based Mono and Diglyceries are Halal. A Halal or Kosher symbol (which meet the Islamic dietary requirements) on a food package containing Mono and Diglycerides indicates that it is obtained from soybean fat. In the absence of Halal or Kosher symbol on the package Muslim consumers should contact the manufacturer to find out the source of Mono & Diglycerides.

    Muffins are aslo made with alcohol containing flavors.

    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 Kirkland Signature and Herballife. They are not Halal because they are not Kosher certified or do not have a Kosher symbol on the package (if Kosher certification meets the Halal requirements because not every Kosher certified food product is Halal).

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

    Word Gmmies is No No for Muslim Consumers

    There are many products candies, multivitamins, Drunken Gummies made with Vodka, Haribo Gummies, Fiber Gummies, Life Saver Gummies, Lemon - Raspberry Gelatin Gummies.

    The common ingredient in all above is gelatin and mostly pork gelatin is used. Some times marshmallow containing pork gelatin is also used.

    So MCG is requesting Muslim Consumers to avoid consuming any product named with Gummies.

    Please avoid food products, vitamins containing Softgel

    All softgel products are made with gelatin. Most of the time the gelatin used in softgel is from pork because it is cheap gelatin in USA.

    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

    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. It is important to know that the fish gelatin from cat fish is not consider Halal or Kosher because of fish mouth.
