    My dad got this marinade sauce - Wagamama sweet teriyaki sauce, but it's got rice wine in it? I've never heard of it before, wondering if its haram? Obviously the word wine brings alcohol to mind but someone once told me that white wine vinegar was halal when made in a certain way? Not sure though, but jzk in advance to anyone who can answer my question

    Salam,
    Well white wine vinegar is ethanoic acid, not (alcohol). Industrially one can via a catalyst oxidise an alcohol to a carboxylic acid (lol too much chemistry), as long as no alcohol remains in the end, it is obvious that it is halal, since it is just vinegar.

    I did a quick search for rice wine, according to Wikipedia it is an alcoholic beverage, meaning that it literally contains alcohol, actually more alcohol than the common wine, hence it is haram.

    Salam,

    I'd personally bin it, some would argue that if you give something haraam to a Non-Muslim you are indirectly 'helping' them to commit a sin, I am not sure how many scholars share that view, but its probably the safer option to simply bin it.

    Fair enough, it's just a shame that it's going to waste when someone else would happily take it. I do understand what you're saying though and it would be best just to dispose of it.

    An Australian professor has warned religious groups that cigarette filters may contain traces of pig’s blood.

    Simon Chapman said recent Dutch research has identified 185 different industrial uses for a pig - including the use of haemoglobin in cigarette filters.


    The University of Sydney professor said the study offered an insight into the world of cigarette manufacturing and was likely to spark concerns for devout Muslims and Jews.

    -

    ‘It just puts into hard relief the problem that the tobacco industry is not required to declare the ingredients of cigarettes - they say “that’s our business and a trade secret”.’


    The research found pig haemoglobin - a blood protein - was being used to make the filters more effective at blocking toxic chemicals before they entered a smoker’s lungs.


    Professor Chapman said that although some tobacco companies had voluntarily published a list of the contents in their cigarettes on websites, they also noted undisclosed ‘processing aids’ in the finished product.

    Professor Chapman said: ‘If you’re a smoker and you’re of Islamic or Jewish faith then you’d probably want to know and there is no way of finding out.’

    Social experiment: what would be easier for you to handle? The news of the death of your partner or the news that they had committed zina?

    Shaima Alawadi, a 32-year-old Iraqi woman living in Southern California, was taken off life support today, succumbing to injuries sustained in a brutal tire iron beating on Wednesday. Shaima was found in her living room, and according to her daughter Fatima and the police investigating, a note was found near her saying “Go back to your country, you terrorist.”

    Shaima was a mother of five who has been in the US with her family since the mid-1990s. She was described by her friend Sura Alzaidy as “respectful modest muhajiba.” Her daughter tearfully addressed her mother’s attackers during a media interview, saying “You took my mother away from me. You took my best friend away from me. Why? Why did you do it?”
