 All animal hides (skins) are rendered Taahir (Paak - pure and

 Pigskin, however remains impure even after undergoing the
 tanning process.

1) Hushpuppies - certain ranges are manufactured with pigskin
    uppers lining
2) Green Cross Health Shoes - some ranges use pigskin
    lining/foot bed linings
3) Attache Cases etc. - at times, the inner lining of genuine
    leather attache cases is at times also from pigskin

Take a close look at the item and if it reveals a porous surface
like the pores of one's skin, then it is most likely pigskin.

RENNET in the cheese is of animal origin is HARAM too unless

I got this from a friend. For those who are unaware, please let it  be known to our "un-informed" muslim brothers and sisters. This is what it reads.

I bought this particular book title Islamic Parenting. One of the topics tells about eating habits. As I was reading, I came across this particular ingredient which is contained in most Chocolates & Ice creams: Emulsifier 471. These are pork fats and they name it such a way. 




After reading it, I called MUIS & checked  with them. They told me that it is actually pork fats. I checked most Chocolate Brands & Ice creams and that most of them we cannot eat. 




I'm telling you this because after reading & enquiring I feel that as Muslims we should not make the same mistake. Before eating any chocolates or ice creams, please check the ingredients first. You can still eat those ice-creams which has HALAL approved label on them e.g. Walls and Kings.
