  • Bismiillah How come on some questions where yellow 5 is mentioned you respond by telling them it is halal. But in the website it is marked mushbooh? BarikAllahufeekum - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    FD&C Yellow number 5 if used as granular or in powder form then it is Halal but for FD&C Yellow number 5 used in liquid for in liquid then it needs a kosher symbol on the package. From 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.

  • Assalamualikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatahu br pls read this article As New Scientist reports , we know that the waterproof barrier is found in a thin layer of fat found between the outermost layers of skin cells. A team at Sweden's Karolinska Institute led by Lars Norlén spent months shaving layers of skin off of volunteers and flash-freezing the tissue samples at -140° C in an attempt to keep the fat cells in their original positions and make it possible to study them up close. After a lot of trial and error and many failed attempts, the team has been able to get a slice thin enough to reveal the inner workings of the skin's waterproof boundary. New Scientist explains: Lipids have a hydrophilic (water-attracting) head and two hydrophobic (water-repelling) tails. Normally, the two tails point in the same direction, giving the molecule a hairpin-like appearance. A group of lipid molecules typically arrange themselves into a two-layered sheet – or bilayer – with all of the tails pointing inwards. However, the lipid molecules in between the cells of the stratum corneum are splayed outwards so that the two tails of each molecule point in opposite directions. These lipid molecules are stacked on top of one another in an alternating fashion. "By stretching out like this they form a more condensed structure which is much more impermeable than a normal bilayer," says Norlén. This uniquely structured fatty layer prevents any water from getting past in either direction – except where the skin layer is modified to form pores. Qs 1)Is our skin impermeable even to water. Is this theory or article wrong give reasons - Mohammed Abdullah Farooqui
  • AOA

    Our skin is permeamable to any thing. Please do not think any skin care product with pork or alcohol is permissible.

  • Assalamu alaikumwwb. I am very confused now. Please could you let me know whether this paragraph below is true or not: Natural vanilla flavoring is derived from real vanilla beans with little to no alcohol. The maximum amount of alcohol that is usually present is only 2%-3%. Also on the market is imitation vanilla extract, a wood by-product usually made by soaking alcohol into wood which contains vanillin. The vanillin is then chemically treated to mimic the taste of natural vanila May Allah reward you with the best reward in botht the worlds and bless you for your excellent efforts for the Muslim Ummah. Jazakallah khair - M ADAM
  • AOA

    It is all wrong.

    Natural vanilla flavoring is obtained by extracting natural vanillin present in vanilla bean with alcohol. Natural Vanilla Flavoring contain alcohol, it does not matter how much it contains. Natural Vanilla Flavoring is not Halal ingredients.

    Vanillin or artificial vanilla flavor is produced from the petrochemical raw material guaiacol or lignin from wood pulp. No alcohol is used in production of vanillin or artificial vanilla flavor and it is a Halal ingredient.

  • AOA

    Only the manufacturer knows whether alcohol is used as a hidden ingredient in flavor or not. You e-mail them this way:

    " 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".

    About US

    Syed Rasheeduddin Ahmed has been providing list of Halal/Haram food products to Muslims since 1985. The first Halal food list of Chicago area supermarkets was published in IFANCA's newsletter in 1985. The first edition of Halal food book "A Comprehensive List of Halal Food Products in US Supermarkets" was published in 1991. The Hadya from four editions of Halal food books was given to Islamic Community of Fairfield County 's masjid building funds in Connecticut. The organization was registered in 1993. The Hadya from the 5th to the 7th editions was used to publish the next edition. The MCG website was started in 2000 and Alhumdulillah, it became very popular by the Grace of Allah. According to Google Statistics, from July 12, 2013 to July 31, 2013 a 46, 049 Muslims visited our website from 160 countries. Alhumdulillah about 2400 Muslims logged this website daily. This MCG website was developed by br. Zahid Presswala of LJ Web Management Company in July 2011. MCG consults with Mufti Mohammed Hafeezur Rahman Khan of Huston, TX, Mufti Syed Ahmed ul Quadri of IDEA Dallas, TX, Mufti Mohsin Meccki of Chicago Sunni Muslim Society and Mufti Khalil Ahmed of Jamai Nizamia Hyderabad, India on Sharia rules for Halal foods.

Muslim Consumer Group For Food Products is educating Muslims throughout the world about Halal food ingredients and products. He is providing service in Halal food certification since 1993. Mr. Ahmed has started writing his first edition of Halal food book "A Comprehensive List of Halal Food Products in US Supermarkets" in 1991. He just published its eight edition in December 2009. MCG has established two well known Halal food websites. The www.muslimconsumergroup.com website was established in 2000 and logged in 160 countries. The www.Canadianhalalfoods.com website was established in 2006.

    Mr. Ahmed earned a B.Sc (Agriculture), M.Sc (Agriculture) in Horticulture from A.P Agricultural University Hyderabad, India and a MS degree in Cereal Technology from North Dakota State University Fargo, North Dakota. He gave a presentation about the role of US food industry experience in Halal food education and Halal food certification at a Halal Foods conference conducted by KUIM at Futrajaya, Malaysia on September 29, 2004. The International Association for Food Protection Organization Des Moines, Iowa has invited him to give a presentation on food protection of Halal Foods in USA for a Food Protection seminar at Orlando, Florida in July 2006. He was invited to speak on Hidden Ingredients in Foods and Food ingredients by Saudi Arabia's FDA at First International Conference on Halal Food Control at Riyadh, Saudi Arabia in Feb. 2012.

  • Assalamou alikum Is doritos halal plz answer jzk - fatima
  • AOA

    Why Cheetos and Doritos (except Doritos Toasted Corn Tortilla Chips) are not Halal

    There is no kosher symbol on the package of Cheetos and Doritos. This makes them Non Halal because they can add any Haram Hidden or Processing aid ingredients without mentioning under the ingredients statement. Cheese used in Cheetos and Doritos are not Kosher certified and not Halal. Sine these products are not under Halal or Kosher certification then Frito Lay can use non kosher certified flavors or colors. There is no restriction for Frito Lay to make Cheetos or Doritos on their own lines or on co-packers line where pork containing products are made. This exposes a great possibility of cross contamination of pork containing ingredients. All these snacks are very attractive to adults and children but there is a Hadith which says that Allah will not accept your dua for 40 days if a Muslim eats intentionally a bit of Haram food. So MCG recommend Muslims not consume above snacks.

  • Assalaamualaikum.I know that you are not an Islamic scholar but a food scientist. Just please clarify this Hadith in your thinking since I see answers related to this Hadith even on your website. =========== ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) narrated that some people came to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and said: “Some people bring meat to us, and we do not know if they mentioned the name of Allaah or not.” He said: “Say it yourselves then eat.” --------------This is an extract from the most authentic Hadith Sahih Al Bukhari no.5507. You can check this website for better understanding. =======http://islamqa.info/en/52800---------Jazak Allah. - Syed Muteeb
  • AOA

    It is my understand is that the Hadith is belong to new Muslims living in Madina. People who converting to Islam are in the state of learning. The people came to Prophet Sayyidina Mohammed Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallum are real and learned Muslims and they are talking about new Muslims  because Jews or Christian at that times announced the name of Allah before slaughtering the animals. At that times the slaughtering method for Muslims or Jews or Christian was same. Those people the new Muslims who broght the meat to real Muslim who are following Sharia rules of slaughtering are doubting whether the new Muslims are following the sharia rules of slaughtering.

    In my opinion this hadith is to protect New Muslims feeling by not accepting the meat because they niya was the same the real Muslims.

    The above hadith said for only those new Muslims at that times.

    Some Muslims abuse this Hadith by buying supermarket non zabiha meat and saying Bismillah and consuming it. This is not right.

    Please ask a Islamic scholars and tell what I wrote and see whta he will say.

  • Praise be to Allaah. There is nothing wrong with using alcohol-based perfumes on the body and on clothes, and that does not affect the validity of the prayer. The scholars differed as to the nature of the impurity (najaasah) of alcohol: is it physical or metaphorical? Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen (may Allah have mercy on him) said when he was asked about the impurity of alcohol and cologne: The basic principle is that things are pure (taahir) unless there is evidence to indicate that they are impure (najis). When there is no evidence to indicate that something is impure, then the basic principle is that it is pure. But it is evil (khabeeth) in a practical and metaphorical sense. However, the fact that a thing is forbidden does not necessarily mean that it is impure. Do you not see that poison is haraam but it is not najis (impure)? Everything that is najis is haraam, but nor everything that is haraam is najis. Based on that, we say concerning cologne and similar things: they are not najis, because alcohol in and of itself is not najis. There is evidence for the opinion that we have mentioned, so cologne and similar things are not najis either, and as they are not najis, the clothing does not have to be purified from them. End quote. Majmoo‘ Fataawa al-Shaykh al-‘Uthaymeen, 11/252 Shaykh Muhammad ibn ‘Uthaymeen was also asked: If it is proven that a perfume contains alcohol, can a person put it on his clothing and go out to pray? He answered: It should be noted that pure alcohol is not najis and it does not have to be washed from the clothing or the body. Once you understand that, you will know that perfumes that contain alcohol, even if the ratio is high, are not najis. End quote. Liqa’ al-Baab al-Maftooh, 176, question no. 4 (source: http://islamqa.info/en/164448) اس قول كى دليل درج ذيل مسلم شريف كى حديث سے بھى لى گئى ہے: ايك شخص نے رسول كريم صلى اللہ عليہ وسلم كو ايك مشكيزہ شراب ہديہ دى تو رسول كريم صلى اللہ عليہ وسلم نے اسے بتايا كہ يہ حرام ہو چكى ہے، تو چپكے سے ايك صحابى نے اس مشكيزے كے مالك كو كہا اسے فروخت كر دو، تو رسول كريم صلى اللہ عليہ وسلم نے اس سے دريافت كيا كہ تم نے اس سے چپكے سے كيا كہا ہے ؟ تو اس نے كہا: ميں نے اسے كہا ہے كہ اسے فروخت كر دو، تو رسول كريم صلى اللہ عليہ وسلم نے اسے فروخت كرنے سے منع كر ديا اور فرمايا: جب اللہ تعالى كسى چيز كو حرام كرتا ہے تو اس كى قيمت بھى حرام كر ديتا ہے " يہ حديث يا حديث كا معنى ہے، پھر اس شخص نے نبى كريم صلى اللہ عليہ وسلم كى موجودگى ميں ہى مشكيزے كا منہ كھول كر شراب بہا دى، اور نبى كريم صلى اللہ عليہ وسلم نے اسے مشكيزہ دھونے كا حكم نہيں ديا، اور اگر شراب نجس ہوتى تو رسول كريم صلى اللہ عليہ وسلم اسے اس كى نجاست كے متعلق بتا ديتے اور اس مشكيزے كو دھونے كا حكم ديتے. (source:http://islamqa.info/ur/59899) Raw materials are basically pure, and impurity is not a pre-condition for making something unlawful because impurity itself is a legal ruling which requires an independent evidence. So, everything that is impure is forbidden, but the opposite is not necessarily true. The rule that a material is impure is also a rule that it is forbidden, but the rule that something is forbidden does not necessarily mean that it is impure. For example, wearing silk and gold is forbidden for men but silk and gold themselves are pure. The evidence that the majority of scholars have used to prove that alcohol is impure is the verse (which means): {O you who believe, intoxicants, gambling and Al-Azlaam (arrows for seeking luck or decision) are an abomination of Satan’s handiwork. So avoid (strictly all) that (abomination) in order that you may be successful.} [Quran 5:90] Therefore, most of the scholars took the meaning of abomination as impurity, but Rabee’ah. Al-Layth Ibn Saad, Al-Muzni, as well as some latter-day Baghdadi and Qaruwi scholars may Allaah have mercy upon them believe that alcohol is pure and that what is forbidden is only drinking it. Sa’eed Ibn Al-Haddaa’ Al-Qaruwi may Allaah have mercy upon him gave as evidence for its purity the fact that it was poured out into the streets of Madeenah (when it was prohibited). He said that if alcohol was impure, the companions of the Prophet , would not have poured it in the streets of Madeenah. Also, in the abovementioned verse, Allaah has mentioned and enumerated alcohol along with Al-Azlaam, intoxicants and gambling, and these are all pure materials in the opinion of all the scholars of Islam. The meaning of "Rijs" (abomination) would be that it is a sin that Satan has beautified doing for people. If this is established, it is then clear that what is forbidden is drinking it and that alcohol itself is not impure. We say, then, that alcoholic perfumes are made of water, the perfuming ingredient(s) and alcohol, which constitutes the highest percentage as compared to the other components of these perfumes. (source: http://www.islamweb.net/emainpage/index.php?page=showfatwa&Option=FatwaId&Id=82097) In this regard, Al-Azhar House of Fatwa issued the following Fatwa: "In Islam, it is unanimously held that all things are supposed to be deemed pure, and that it is not necessary that all what is declared forbidden is considered impure. This is because impurity is a legal ruling that needs evidence. For example, drugs and fatal poisons are forbidden, yet this by no means qualify them to be impure. For this reason, some scholars including Rabi`ah, Al-Layth Ibn Sa`d, Al-Muzani (the companion of Ash-Shafi`i) and some other scholars hold that wine is pure regardless of its being unlawful, and that only drinking it is forbidden. However, the majority of jurists are of the view that wine is impure and forbidden. Thus, we conclude that all that is impure is deemed forbidden, but not vice versa. This is because regarding something as impure is to forbid any physical contact with it, whereas regarding something as unlawful is not necessarily to forbid any contact with it. To illustrate, wearing gold and silk is unlawful (for men), yet they are considered pure by the consensus of scholars and thus can be touched by men. As far as perfumes containing alcohol is concerned, they consist of many ingredients like water, perfume, and alcohol that comprises the highest percentage. It is known that alcohol is produced from sugarcane by way of distillation. Thus, according to the juristic rule, which states that all things are presumed to be originally pure and that being prohibited does not render something impure, perfumes that contain alcohol are pure, particularly if we bear in mind that they are used for cleaning and perfuming the body. Thus, it is permissible to use these perfumes and there is nothing wrong in that." Dr. Muzammil H. Siddiqi, former President of the Islamic Society of North America, adds: "It is forbidden to drink alcohol. In the perfumes usually denatured alcohol is used. This alcohol is not unclean (najas). According to some jurists even natural alcohol is not najas. According to the Shari`ah, there is nothing wrong in using alcohol based perfumes." (source: http://islamawareness.net/Alcohol/fatwa_alcohol001.html) Sheikh Salman al-Oadah Thu, 01/01/2004 There is no question that drinking wine and other alcoholic beverages is forbidden in Islam. This is a matter of unanimous agreement among Muslims. Allah says: “O ye who believe! Intoxicants, gambling, idols, and divination by arrows are but filth of Satan's handiwork. Keep away from it in order that you may succeed. Satan's plan is but to excite enmity and hatred between you, with intoxicants and gambling, and hinder you from the remembrance of Allah, and from prayer: will you not then desist?” [ Sûrah al-Mâ'idah : 90-91] Scholars agree that this verse prohibiting intoxicants is among the last verses of the Qur'ân to be revealed. There is no possibility that this verse has been abrogated. Its ruling, therefore, is in force until the Day of Judgment. However, does that fact that wine is unlawful also mean that it is impure? Some scholars of the Shâfi`î school of law claim that the impurity of alcoholic beverages is a matter of juristic consensus. [al-Nawawî, al-Majmû` (2/563)] This claim is untrue. The question of whether alcoholic beverages are pure or impure is a matter of scholarly dispute. The first opinion: The opinion of the majority of scholars is that alcoholic beverages are impure. This is the opinion of the scholars of the Hanafî, Mâlikî, and Hanbalî schools of law. It is also the position of the majority of Shâfi`î scholars. Many later scholars, like Ibn Taymiyah, Ibn al-Qayyim, al-Shinqîtî, and Ibn Bâz, also hold this view. The evidence for this view is as follows: 1. Allah says: “Intoxicants, gambling, idols, and divination by arrows are but filth of Satan's handiwork. Keep away from it in order that you may succeed.” [ Sûrah al-Mâ'idah : 90] Scholars have understood that wine is impure from this verse in a number of ways. First of all, there is the fact that it has been forbidden. Secondly, it is described as “filth” and looked upon as something vile. Lastly, we are ordered to keep away from it. With respect to deriving a ruling of impurity from this verse, al-Ghazâlî said: “It takes the ruling of being impure to emphasize its unlawfulness and to discourage it, comparable to the dog and to what the dog has lapped up.” [as quoted by al-Nawawî in al-Majmû` (2/565)] Nevertheless, the verse is not giving a clear indication that alcoholic beverages are impure. Allah clearly states the reason why these drinks are unlawful by saying: “Satan's plan is but to excite enmity and hatred between you, with intoxicants and gambling, and hinder you from the remembrance of Allah, and from prayer…” The fact that it has been described as “filth” in the context of this verse is not evidence for its being impure. The Arabic word being used is “ rijs ”, which according to language conveys the meaning of uncleanness in a more general sense. Likewise, the fact that we are ordered to avoid it is no indicator of it being impure. It is clearly an order to stay away from what is unlawful and the places and circumstances where such unlawful practices are carried out. Allah mentions intoxicating beverages along with gambling, idols, and divination with arrows, describing all of these things as “filth”. However, there is no question that gambling accessories, idols, and divining arrows are not impure substances. It is a matter of consensus that they are indeed pure. Only Ibn Hazm went so far as say: “These things are filth and they are unlawful. If a person prays carrying any of these things, his prayer will be invalid.” [ al-Muhallâ (1/255)] No other scholar has ever been known to hold a similar view. And Allah knows best. The only way this verse could possibly be used to indicate the impurity of alcoholic beverages would be to interpret it as stating the impurity of all of the things it mentions, then to say that gambling accessories, idols, and divining arrows are excepted from the ruling of impurity by some other evidence – most probably the juristic consensus that those things are pure. 2. Also cited as evidence for the impurity of alcoholic beverages is the verse: “And there Lord will give them to drink a beverage pure.” [ Sûrah al-Insân : 21] This verse describes the drink of the denizens of Paradise as being pure. This, by indication of contrast, shows that the wine of our worldly existence is impure. This understanding is supported by the fact that Allah, elsewhere in the Qur'ân, attributes to the wine of Paradise characteristics that are nonexistent in the wine of this world, saying: : “It is free from headiness; nor will they suffer intoxication therefrom.” [ Sûrah al-Sâffât : 47] and: “No after-ache will they receive from it, nor will they suffer intoxication” [ Sûrah al-Wâqi`ah : 19] It cannot go unnoticed that this argument is insufficient evidence for the impurity of alcoholic beverages. The purity of the drink of Paradise in no way implies the impurity of everything which the people of this world drink. The word “beverage” is general in meaning, including both alcoholic and nonalcoholic drinks. Therefore, if we were to derive from the verse an indication by contrast, we would have to declare every drink under the Sun to be impure. The second opinion: The opinion that alcoholic beverages are pure has been attributed to Rabî` b. `Abd al-Rahmân – who was the teacher of Mâlik b. Anas – and to Dâwûd al-Zâhirî. They said, as quoted by al-Qâdî Abû al-Tayyib: “It is pure though it is forbidden, in the same way that poisons which are plant substances are unlawful but not impure.” This same opinion has been passed down from al-Layth b. Sa`d, al-Shâfi`î's student al-Muzanî, and some of the later Mâlikî scholars of Qarawiyin and Baghdad such as Sa`îd b. Haddâd al-Qarawî. Among the more contemporary scholars who held this view were al-Sahwkânî, al-San`ânî, Muhammad Rashîd Ridâ, al-Albânî, and al-`Uthaymîn. They cite the following evidence to support their view: 1. When the prohibition of wine was revealed, the Companions poured the alcoholic drinks that they possessed out into the streets. Anas relates the following: I was serving drinks to people in the home of Abû Talhah on the day that wine was prohibited, and they were drinking nothing but date wine. Suddenly someone called out: “Come out and see!” So we did so and someone called out: “Verily, wine has been prohibited!” It was flowing through the streets of Madinah. Abû Talhah said to me: “Take it outside and pour it out.” So I did so. [ Sahîh al-Bukhârî (3/102) and Sahîh Muslim (3/1568-1572)] The Companions poured their wine out into the streets of Madinah until the roadways were actually flowing with it. If it had been impure on account of its prohibition, they would not have done so. Islamic Law strictly prohibits the contamination of public thoroughfares with impurities. It is something that even the most common of people are above committing, not to mention the Companions, who were the best and most of generations. If they had believed that wine had become impure, they would have made sure to dispose of it in the places where impure things were discarded. This was the argument advanced by Sa`îd b. al-Haddâd al-Qarawî to demonstrate the purity of wine. Moreover, he added, the Prophet (peace be upon him) would have made it clear to them that they were not allowed to dispose of it in the manner that they did. 2. A man gave Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) a waterskin of wine as a gift. Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) said: “Do you know that Allah has prohibited this?” He said: “No, I did not.” Then he whispered an instruction to someone. Allah's Messenger asked: “What did you whisper to him?” He answered: “I told him to go and sell it.” The Prophet said: “Whatever is forbidden to drink is likewise forbidden to sell.” So the man opened the waterskin and poured out its contents. [ Sahîh Muslim (3/1206), Sunan al-Bayhaqî (6/12), Musnad Ahmad (1/230, 244, 323, and 358), Sunan al-Dârimî (2/171), and Musnad Abû Ya`lâ (2468)] If the contents of the waterskin had been impure, the man would not have poured them out right in front of the Prophet (peace be upon him). Even if he were to have done so, the Prophet (peace be upon him) would have told him to pour the wine out somewhere else. He would also have instructed the man to clean out the waterskin thoroughly to remove the impurities from it. 3. Before wine was prohibited, the Companions used to keep it in their jugs and their waterskins. It would have, without a doubt, come in contact with their skin and their clothing. When the prohibition of wine was revealed, the people poured their wine into the streets, and never once has it been mentioned that anyone washed his body, his clothing, or even his dishes on account of the wine. If wine were impure, they would have most certainly all done so. 4. In Islamic Law, a substance is presumed to be pure by default. To declare that something is other than pure, evidence from the sacred texts is required. There is no clear text stating that wine is impure. Wine and other alcoholic beverages are made from substances that are well-known and commonplace, none of which are impure. Therefore, the only way that wine can be considered impure is if it suffers a change from being a pure substance into an impure one as it ferments into an intoxication drink. Such a claim requires evidence. There can be no doubt that something does not become impure simply because it is prohibited. There are a whole host of poisons that are prohibited for us to take, though they are definitely not impure. It is quite plain that wine was not impure before it was prohibited. If it had been, people would have had to clean up after it. Indeed, they would not have been able to drink it on that account alone, since it is unlawful to imbibe impure substances. Therefore, evidence is needed to demonstrate that after wine became prohibited, it became impure as well. Conclusion: The opinion that seems most correct – and Allah knows best – is the opinion that alcoholic beverages are pure. The evidence supporting this view is strong and free from any serious counterarguments. The evidence supporting the impurity of these beverages, on the other hand, is open to serious criticism. And Allah knows best. (source:http://en.islamtoday.net/artshow-386-3349.htm) Sir, It is my request to u to state the difference b/w "IMPURITY" and "HARAM" of alcohol because lots of Muslims go astray of considering it not only haram to intake but also impure to use in another products and get loosen their faiths as they consider themselves that they can't strictly follow this rule of impurity and become dishearted. Moreover, some Muslims do not offer their prayers and say; "we r having perfume on our dress" or they consider that if they have used any product which included alcohol they shouldn't offer the prayer... THIS thought makes the faith weaken.. plz try to remove this misconception about alcohol which makes the Muslims think that their clothes, body or etc. will become unclean/ impure by using any alcohol containing product. Because our relegion "ISLAM" is not so difficult: Abû Hurayrah relates that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said: This religion is easy. No one becomes harsh or strict in the religion without it overwhelming him. So, fulfill your duties as best you can and rejoice. Rely upon the efforts of the morning and of the evening and a little at night and you will reach your target. Agreed upon: Sahîh al-Bukharî (6463) Sahîh Muslim (2816) I'm requesting to u bcz so many Muslims visits ur website daily and if u'll show this difference of alcohol of its being unclean and anlawful they'll get the easy and right way to follow the sharia. - Saba Khan
  • AOA

Impurity is a different thing.. Kindly quote me any hadith or ayat which says it is impure other than Maida 90. And in ur reply u said the hadith is not sahee, so, the sahih hadith which is a long 1, so , I'm telling only the centre point in my own words which is: " two men came to Apostle(P.B.U.H) and gave alcohol him as a gift but when He (p.b.u.h) rejected to accept that and when HE (p.b.u.h) told them it is prohibited not only to drink but also to sell it, they opened the mouth of the container and poured all alcohol." This hadith also shows that if the alcohol is impure why did they pour alcohol before Apostle(p.b.u.h) on floor? - Saba Khan
  • AOA

    I went to their website, they do not have any scientific background. There is no mentioned of alcohol in Quran instate it mentioned Quamer. Quamer is not 100% alcohol it contains other ingredients sucg as water, flavor, organic coumpound.

    5:90
    Sahih International

    O you who have believed, indeed, intoxicants, gambling, [sacrificing on] stone alters [to other than Allah ], and divining arrows are but defilement from the work of Satan, so avoid it that you may be successful.

    Please go a good tafseer about 5:90 read it. Please do not follow those say alcohol is Halal.

    I am not conern about pure or upure alcohol is a intoxicant and it is Haram.

    I can not provide a Hadith or Quranic ayat which specially mentioned ALCHOL because alcohol was discovered by a Iranian Muslim during the days of Imam Azam Abu Hanifa RA. In Quran and ahadith Quamer was mentioned as intoxicant.

    The hadith you mentioned is sahi and true this is basis sharia rules that you can not sell quamer or carry or give as gift. You consider quamer as intoxicant, please do not consider Quamer as alcohol.

    Most of then contain alcohol and alcohol and other ingredients are not subject to Istihala. Please do not think all ingredients are subject to Istihalal.

    I never heard such hadith. Hadith has to be Sahee. There are lot week ahidith which many ulema do not trust. No body can go against 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)

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

     

    Narrated Tariq ibn Suwayd RA or Suwayd ibn Tariq RA:

    Wail 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)

    FATWA FROM DARUL IFTA JAMIA NIZAMIA HYDERABAD, INDIA ON ALCOHOL

    Jamia Nizamia has issued the following Fatwa on Alcohol:

    Although there is difference of opinion among ulema about alcohol being consider as wine but according to "Mufti Ba Qhool" (saying of Mufti) anything which causes intoxication in large or small quantity is consider as Haram. So use of alcohol is prohibited.

Thanks You Jazak Allah Khyar. - Muhammad Usman
  • AOA

    It mostly happened to food products under "Halal if no alcohol is used in flavor" if get e-mail from Muslim consumers who obtained answer from food companies whether alcohol was used or not. If alcohol was not used then it became Halal but if alcohol was used then it became Not Halal. It happened some times if we found alcohol was used during the manufacture of the ingredients then Halal food products become Not Halal. If not Halal status has changed by having kosher symbol and no alcohol in flavor then the status is changed to Halal. There is no automatic. I have to change status manually.

    You have to understand that I am the only person who do all work and I can not offord to employ a food technologist to help me.
