assalamualaikum dear scholars this is my first time to post a question on islamonline i have one doubt on giving fateha on food is it permisable in islam or not jazakallahulkhair
As-Salamu `Alaykum! I have a question concerning non-Muslim's (Hindus, Sikhs, etc.) hand-made foods. Does Islam permit Muslims to eat the foods made by non-Muslims? I have another question for you. Can we have some non-Muslim friends?
can you please tell me, amongst the sea animals or animals which live in water, which animals are Halal,
Assalamu'alaykum.Is that permissible for a Muslim to eat any food cooked with wine? It is said that the wine or alcohol will evaporate as it is heated. So, most of it will be freed into the air as gas molecules. While the alcohol left in the food may has already changed to another type of substance or chemical which has lost the alcohol characteristic. In this case, may the 'istihalah' concept be applied?One more thing, can we consume the spirit vinegar? Unlike other vinegars, it contains smal l amount of alcohol but won't give the drunken or inebriated effect.JazakaLLah.
If we purchase haram food unknowingly, are we allowed to eat it so that it does not go to waste? I know that pork is strictly forbidden, but what if accidentally purchase food with beef in it?
Assalamu Alikum, I work in a non muslim country. The company I work provides meals for the employees which is prepared by non muslims(not ahlulkitabs). They also serve pork. even though we don't eat any meat or pork, I would like to know whether is it halal to eat the food they prepare as they will be using the same kithcen utensils to prepare these meals and those frayers or utensils will not be cleaned accroding to sharia rulings. I encouter the same problem when I go to resaturants and hotels as mostly they are managed and own by non muslims.Jazakallah
Recently there has emerged the phenomenon of selling stuffed animals and birds. We hope that you could explain to us the ruling on collecting stuffed animals and birds, and on selling them.
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. The ingredients of some foods contain items which are denoted by the letter "E" and a string of numbers. We were told that this denotes items manufactured from Lard or Pork bone and marrow. If this is true, what is the Shari`ah ruling on such foods? Jazakum Allah khayran.
as-Salamu `alaykum! Some steak or chicken that is served in restaurants is cooked in wine. So, is it haram (unlawful) to eat food that is cooked in wine?
As-Salamu `alaykum. I often go out for lunch and dinner with professional and personal friends, and I often find myself in an awkward position of stressing over what to order. I only eat halal, but at most restaurants, the only thing I can eat are either vegetarian and fish dishes, which are not to my taste at all, or chicken and beef items that are non-Zabiha (not slaughtered according to Islamic rites). Is it okay for me to eat the non-Zabiha chicken and beef on such occasions only? Jazakum Allah khayran.
As-Salamu `alaykum! My question involves the use of vinegar in cooking. To my understanding, vinegar is made from alcohol. Certain types of vinegar have a residual alcohol content. In other kinds of vinegar, you do not know whether any alcohol is left in it or not. Which kinds of vinegar acceptable in Islam?
Respected scholars, as-salamu `alaykum. Is it allowed to sell food in the daytime of Ramadan? Jazakum Allahu khayran.
As-Salamu `alaykum. Is the income of employees who work in food stores that sell alcohol considered halal (lawful)? Also, is it permissible in Islam to eat from "halal" restaurants that also sell alcohol? Jazakum Allah khayran.
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. I was told before that while fasting, a person who is preparing food for iftar is allowed to taste the food in order to see if it is seasoned properly. This is under the condition that nothing is swallowed and just a little bit is placed on the tongue. Is this correct? Jazakum Allah khayran.
As-salamu `alaykum. The second argument posed by the Christian group, which caused much perplexity to Muslims in California, is related to the following hadith in which the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) is reported to have said, “A believer eats in one intestine whereas a non-believer eats in seven intestines.” The author of the flyer posed this question: Do Muslims have one intestine while non-Muslims have seven? Can Dr. Muzammil Siddiqi refute the above claim?
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. Should I eat food containing meat that is sold in non-Muslim stores and stamped "Halal" by some organizations? Jazakum Allah khayran.
