Halal Certification Standards for Goods Made from Animal Products

Assalamu’alaikum Sobat Halal-Mu

Used goods whether used, used, or utilized that come from and / or contain animal elements must be guaranteed halal and sanctity. To ensure the halalness and purity of used goods products, it is necessary to establish halal certification standards for used goods made from animals.

The following is the Halal Certification Standard for Animal-based Goods based on the Fatwa of the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) Number 15 of 2021.

Say: I did not find in the revelation revealed to me anything forbidden for those who want to eat it, except if the food is carrion, flowing blood, or pork – for surely all of them are dirty – or animals slaughtered in the name of other than Allah. But whoever is compelled to eat it and does not desire it, nor does he transgress the limits, then surely your Lord is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” (QS. al-An’am [6]: 145).

And Allah made for you your houses as dwellings and He made for you houses (tents) of the skins of cattle which you find light (to carry) when you walk and when you dwell and (He also made) of sheep’s hair, camel’s hair and goat’s hair, household utensils and adornments (which you wear) until a (certain) time”. (QS. An-Nahl [16]: 80).

Animal-based goods are goods that are used, used, or utilized that originate from and/or contain animal elements.
