Update #3

Scaffolding Purchase

Alhamdulillah!

We have received the final contribution required of £1500.00 by one brother today. That means our target of £3000.00 has been met. I wish to personally thank the forty people or so who helped with the urgent scaffolding that was required. We could not have done it without you!

May Allāh honour them and be pleased with them and bless them with the best of abodes in the Hereafter and may Allāh unlock the hearts of those that did not contribute so we are more generous in the future. آمين

If you missed out then as requested previously please make a regular contribution to the madrasa so it continues to provide the services it does in the future. Remember it is this sadaqa that will benefit you in this world and the next.

Statements from Halalio

I have received innumerable messages asking for clarity in terms of the madhhab’s position on images of certain foods from a social media account called Halalio which is available on most platforms including Instagram and Twitter.

I do not know who is behind the organisation but it seems they do engage with fatawa as there is reference to Dār al-ʿUlūm Karachi.

As a consequence I will give my view on some of the images in circulation.

Fry Light - they have considered this ḥarām.
It is permissible to use as it contains sugar beet or grain alcohol in very small concentration which evaporate in process.

Mr Kipling Angel Slices - that is correctly stated as impermissible due to E120 which is cochineal derived from insects.

Mr Freeze Pops - they have considered them as ḥarām.
They are permissible due to use of small quantities of either synthetic or non-khamr - this is the note I refer to below in places.

Sensations Thai Sweet Chilli - they have considered as ḥarām. In order to save time I will not post their view regarding the remaining products
Permissible as non-khamr - See note above.

Doritos - permissible as non-khamr - see note above.

Magnum Mini (classic/almond/white)
Contains E442 but this can be from plant or animal and varies from country to country. Look out for the suitable for vegetarian sign.

Tic Tac - Lime/Orange
Not permissible as they contain Carmine.

Hartleys Orange Jelly
Not permissible due to pork gelatine.

Kinder Choco-bons
Permissible to consume.

Mr Kipling Cherry Bakewells
Not permissible as they contain Carmine.

Fruitella Strawberry
Not permissible as they contain pork gelatine; in fact all fruitellas with gelatine is from pork.

Oreo
Permissible to consume as non-khamr - see note above regarding alcohol.

M&Ms
Should be avoided due to animal additives which exist in the final product.

Vimto Fizzy Rippa/RIP Roll
Permissible to consume.

Alcohol in foods
With regards to alcohol then according to the Ḥanafī madhhab it is split into two types - non-khamr and khamr. The latter is fermented from grapes and dates and impermissible in any quantity. The former is considered impermissible if it is in large concentrations sufficient to intoxicate and if consumed in lower concentrations it is fine as long as there is no intention of seeking pleasure but rather to assist digestion or for medical purposes and other legislated reasons.
Also an alcohol belongs to a family of organic compounds that possess an -OH group and are not khamr or non-khamr.
As I said I do not know who is behind halalio; I am assuming they are well-intended Muslims who are informing the public. However the manner in which it is being done is causing a great deal of confusion and as a result fitna; using terms like ‘Ḥarām Police’ is trivialising an important matter also adopting minority views and not stating according to which madhhab the views are being stated. Also as there is no declaration who is behind the group we do not know their credentials and as a result judge whether they are permitted to issue fatāwā.
