Kepada PT Indomilk

Saya ingin tahu khususnya untuk produk INDOMILK susu kental manis coklat, apakah sudah mendapat certifikat Halal dari MUI ? Saya melihat di kaleng nya ada logo halal MUI tapi tidak ada nomor label halalnya. Dari yang saya baca di website MUI, semua produk yang disahkan halal oleh MUI mesti mencantumkan nomor label halal di bawah logo halal MUI di kemasan produk.Saya rasa lebih baik kalau pihak Indomilk mencantumkan juga nomor sertifikat halal MUI di kemasan susu tersebut.Mohon klarifikasi dari pihak Indomilk supaya saya lebih tenang mengkonsumsi susu tersebut. Terima kasih.

Why Muslims Follow Madhhabs

By Shaykh Nuh Ha Mim Keller

The work of the mujtahid Imams of Sacred Law, those who deduce shari‘a rulings from Qur’an and hadith, has been the object of my research for some years now, during which I have sometimes heard the question:
“Who needs the Imams of Sacred Law when we have the Qur’an and hadith? Why can’t we take our Islam from the word of Allah and His Messenger (Allah bless him and give him peace), which are divinely protected from error, instead of taking it from the madhhabs or “schools of jurisprudence” of the mujtahid Imams such as Abu Hanifa, Malik, Shafi‘i, and Ahmad, which are not?”

It cannot be hidden from any of you how urgent this issue is, or that many of the disagreements we see and hear in our mosques these days are due to lack of knowledge of fiqh or “Islamic jurisprudence” and its relation to Islam as a whole. Now, perhaps more than ever before, it is time for us to get back to basics and ask ourselves how we understand and carry out the commands of Allah....

Shaykh Muhammad Afifi al-Akiti : Tashil al-Izala ‘an Ishkal al-Mughallaza [Facilitating the Removing of the Difficulties of Heavy Impurities]

“My question is regarding the filth of dog’s saliva in the Shafi’i madhab.
My non-Muslim mother has a dog and when I go to visit her I am faced with many problems. Based on the ruling of the Shafi’i madhab, it seems very difficult to avoid the impurity of dog’s saliva even if the dog doesn’t actually lick me. Please read the following response that I received from [Fulan B], an American brother who is currently studying in Damascus. Here is his reply:

It is a very important article regarding taharah especially how to deal with heavy impurities.

Dear Dhony

Thank you for getting in touch recently. It was great to hear from you.
Our formula are thoroughly tested from external packaging to internal powder content. Singapore’s AVA has own set of specific micro-tests that we need to abide by.
There is a slight nutritional value difference between Singapore and Malaysia. Each country's product has to be produced in line with the local authority requirement.
Dumex Dugro formula is Halal certified by Jabatan Kemajuan Islam Malaysia (JAKIM). You may want to refer to our website for further information.
If there's anything else you'd like to ask or share with us, please feel free to get in touch. We are always here to help.

Note :

I used to give my two sons 2 yrs and 4 yrs old, the above Dumex growing Up Formula Milk. However, after done some research on the internet, I found that Fresh Milk is much better to be given to small kids. Yes I mean the Fresh milk from cow. It is stated that you can start giving your baby fresh milk after around 1 year of age. of course below 1 year, breast feeding is the best. I quickly replaced the formula milk with the Fresh milk.

I just feel more secure in term of Halal ness with regard to fresh milk. Anyway It only has 1 ingredient : yes Fresh milk. No preservatives, no additives, etc. It's very close to natural. Compare that to formula milk where you can find a long list of ingredients in the can. And Alhamdulillah my two sons love to drink their Fresh Milk.

Natural & Artificial Flavors in Food


Are food products containing natural and artificial flavors permissible from the Shafi’i madhab’s point of view?


Wa alaykum salam wa rahmatuLlahi wa barakatuHu,
Foods containing natural and/or artificial flavors, with alcohol being used during the flavors’ production, are permissible. Liquid intoxicants are impure. Yet, flavors may be excusable according to the Shafi’i Madhhab’s principles, as it is a case of ‘umum al-balwa [public affliction]. This expressed case was not found in the Madhhab, while comparable cases establish its premise. Today, natural and artificial flavors are found in many products. Lawful items containing them are permissible; the undetectable, trace amount of alcohol contamination that occurred during their production is excusable [ma’fu ‘anhu].

And Allah (SWT) knows best.
