Halaal Medicine

Halaal Medicine Resource List

It’s important to be aware that what we consume is healthy and even more crucial, that it is Halaal. It is also overwhelming to keep track of which medicines are halaal and of course in times of emergencies, there isn’t any time to do research.

For this reason, I decided to publish this resource from the Halaal Medicine Project, run by IMASA (Islamic Medical Association) in collaboration with Ulema from SANHA (South African National Halaal Authority).

I tried my best to keep it as visual as possible, as it’s easier to recognise products by their logos and colours. I will also do my best to keep it updated.

Please feel free to share this resource with those who may find it useful.
