  • Isn't it only haram if you eat it so technically if a body lotion has alcohol in it, it is okay to use, because it goes on you're body not your mouth. also isn't alcohol only bad if you get drunk from it so you can still use rubbing alcohol and nail polish and nail polish remover? - hfaji jklo
  • AOA

    We have porous cells on our body so we can use alcohol based products on our body and accordingto ulema we can not perorm wadu or namaz. Isopropyle Alcohol or rubbing alcohol is Halal because it does not cause intoxication.

  • AsSalam-o-Alaikum I purchased 2% M.F. Partly skimmed Milk by Scotsburn, made in Mount Pearl, Newfoundland, Canada. The ingredients list is: (1) Partly Skimmed Milk (2) Vitamin A Palmitate and (3) Vitamin D3. But I don't know about the origin / sources of the added vitamins. I am on study and staying in St. John's, NL. Could you please tell me if the sources of vitamins are halal, in otherwords, if this product is halal. I also want to know about children food items because in St. John's Muslim community is very little, if you can tell me food for a child of about 1 year age, especially milk. Thanks WsSalam Syed Nasir Danial - Syed Nasir Danial

    Any milk brand in USA and Canada is Halal because the dairy uses a kosher certified vitmains mix for milk and this vitamins mix is comes from Halal sources. Vitamin A is obtained by chemical reaction and Vitamin D is obtained from Lanolin from sheep's wool without slaughtering it.

  • If a certain brand of cheese is labeled kosher then why can't it be labeled halal? Doritos chips for example, I'm not 100% certain but I'm almost sure I've seen a kosher certification on the bottom of the bag, if that were the case shouldn't it be halal since there is no halal specific way to make cheese out of animals of which are not haram for us to eat their meat? Jazakom Allahu khair for this wonderful website. P.S. I would find it very helpful if the website not only declared a product haram but explained as to why it is haram. - Khalid
  • AOA

    Kosher certification for Jewish consumers and Halal certification for Muslim consumers. There are few products in USA which has both. You may be confuse with kosher certification on Doritos with cheese. There is only one Doritos product Toasted Tortilla Chips has triangle K kosher symbol and it is Halal but not available in Canada.

  • I want ot know the meaning of kosher symbol? Does all of kosher symbol means halaal? Are these products free from pork, alcohol and non zabiha animal products? - Siddiqua
  • AOA

    Kosher symbol mean the food product or ingredie nt is under a kosher certification of a kosher certifying organization. Not all kosher symbol means Halal:

     

     Food Products having Kosher symbols like OU, Circle K, KD, Kuf K, CRC and V are not always Halal    

    The Kosher Certified food products are not considered Halal if they contain one of the following ingredient (based on MCG Halal criteria):

    }  (1) Gelatin (2) Kosher Gelatin (3) L-Cysteine made from human hair or chicken or duck feathers (4) Wine (5) Liquor (6) Beer batter (7) Rum flavor (8) Ethyl Alcohol or ethanol as a main ingredient (9) Cochineal or Carmine (10) Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce (11) Brewer’s Yeast Extract from byproduct of beer making  (12) Nucleotides (13) Vanilla Extract (14) Wine Vinegar (15) If ethyl alcohol is used as a solvent in natural and artificial flavors (16) Confectionary Glaze or Resinous Glaze (17) Torula Yeast grown on alcohol.

     Kosher symbol does not tell you it is a zabiha or free of alcohol but orthodox kosher symbol such as COR, MK, OUD, Circle K indicates no pork is used in the product.

I understand alcohol has low.boiling.point but there are other products that use alcohol in their.production and we have listed them as haram. So whybdoesnt same principal apply to this sauce? Thanks in advance for reply. AllahHafiz - Muzam

    In March 2011, there was no red wine in Irresistable Tomato & Basil Pasta sauce. It is possible that they add red wine to Tomato & Basil Pasta Sauce. I already taken out the Irresistable Tomato & Basil Pasta Suace from the website. Thanks for the information.

  • AOA

    Is Whey a Halal ingredient?

    Muslims think that whey is milk based ingredient, it has to be Halal but answer is no. There are two kinds of whey, one is sweet or rennet whey and other is acid whey. Acid whey is obtained during the making of acid type of cheese such as cottage cheese. Sweet or rennet whey is used more in food products then acid whey. Sweet whey or rennet whey is a by-product of rennet cheese making such as cheddar cheese or Mozzarella cheese. Whey is a portion of milk remaining after coagulation and removal of curd. Whey is Halal only if the Halal starter culture bacteria, Halal medium on which starter culture bacteria are grown (Starter culture bacteria are Halal if they obtained from milk source not meat source and media on which these starter culture bacteria grown has to be made from Halal ingredients such milk). These requirements can only obtained if the cheese and whey are Halal or Kosher certified (which meet the Islamic dietary requirements). A Halal or Kosher symbol (which meet the Islamic dietary requirements) appears on a food package containing whey indicates that it is manufactured under Halal or Kosher supervision.

  • AOA

    First of all the flavor shas to be Kosher certified so that no pork material is used second it should not made with alcohol. Here is a question Muslims should write to food companies to know whether alcohol was used in flavor or not:

    " is alcohol used as a solvent in flavor; alcohol is a hidden ingredient of flavor, it will not appear in the ingredients statement. The knowledge of presence or absence of alcohol in flavor is only known to your QA or Technical service department that has access to the specification of flavors, not the customer service. In the specification of flavor, the flavor supplier supposed to write the name of solvent or carrier used in a flavor by law. So please request them to find out from your QA or Technical service department whether alcohol a hidden ingredient in flavor is used as a solvent or not".

It contains the following ingredients: partly skimmed milk, sugar/glucose-fructose, cocoa, salt, carrageenan, colour, artificial flavour, disodium phosphate, vitamin A palmitate, vitamin D3. ___________________________________ I sended them an email about the flavours in their drinks and they said: Thank you for your e-mail regarding our milk products. Yes, the alcohol in flavours is a solvent only. Its function is to carry and readily dissolve and disperse the flavors in solution. It’s commonly used and likely used in the flavours that you’ve mentioned below with the exception of the Milk 2 Go Chocolate (regular & reduced sugar). The cocoa is a powder used in the Milk 2 Go Chocolate flavours.

  • As sallamu alaykum Jazak-Allah khair for all the work you have put in this website and may Allah reward you and your family immensely in this dunya and akhira, ameen. I am seeking some advice on my previous facial cleasner called clean and clear oil free cream cleanser. It has geletin and when i called the company I was informed that it was from an animal by product. They could not confirm whether it was from cow or pork. I have sensetive oily skin, and I have a skin condition called seborrhea. I can't use water alone because I will get pimples. I have had a difficult time finding a suitable alternative cleanser that is more halal. My question is should i continue abstaining from using this product or would it be okay for me to use it?? A list of the ingredients are: Water, Cetyl Alcohol, PPG 15 Stearyl Ether, Gelatin, Steareth 21, Salicylic Acid, Polysorbate 60, DEA Cetyl Phosphate, Fragrance (Parfum), Menthol, Disodium EDTA, Methylisothiazolinone, Methylchloroisothiazolinone - Idil

    The worker has no knowledge about ingredients used at Tim Horton.

     TIM HORTON DONUTS, BAGELS AND OTHER BAKERY PRODUCTS ARE NOT HALAL BECAUSE OF CROSS CONTAMINATION

    We have research extensively with Tim Horton consumer department, Nutrition/ Regulatory department and thoroughly researched the ingredients of Donuts, Bagels and other bakery products and found many products are kosher certified and meet Halal requirements. But Tim Horton Company cannot guarantee about the Halal and kosher status of their products. They said that the products with kosher status loosed its status when they prepared at store which uses pork and other meat. Donuts and all bakery products came to stores as frozen then they baked on the sheet in the oven.
