Allah orders us in the Qur’an not to consume the flesh of swine. “Forbidden to you (for food) are carrion, blood, swine flesh, and that which has been dedicated to any other than Allah; that which has been strangled; that which has been beaten to death (by a blunt instrument); that which fell (a long fall); that which was gored by horns; that of which predators have eaten—saving that which you make lawful (by slaughtering before they die); and which has been sacrificed to idols.” (Al-Ma’idah: 3)

Therefore, we have to abstain from its flesh and even any food that is fried in its oil.

Sheikh Ahmad Kutty, senior lecturer and Islamic scholar at the Islamic Institute of Toronto, Canada, stated: “We are not allowed to eat food fried in the same oil in which pork or its by-products have been fried. It is clearly haram and we must not rationalize it.
