1) Its been several years that I have consumed Centrum multi vitamin. Only recently, to my surprise, the sales assitant of Guardian farmacy had told me, that this Centrum that I have been consumed was contained with porcine and borcine gelatin's.
2) I am neither sure nor unsure that JAKIM knew this matter. It will not be surprised if JAKIM would someday declared this multi vitamin as HARAM.
3) From my understanding, porcine is gelatin that was extracted from pig, while borcine is gelatin that was extracted from cow. As you know, pig was considered HARAM to eat by Muslim Since before this I wasn't knew that this centrum contained by these gelatines, I assume, I am free from sins [only GOD knows].
4) These are the polemics that baffle most Muslims in Malaysia since the authorities like JAKIM started to implement the law of God. When one has committed adultery in enclosed area i.e. hotel etc, is a sin between him to God. Unless the sin was committed in public area, thus the JAKIM has every right to implement their jurisdiction.
5) Even if, this Centrum multi vitamin does not contained porcine but still contained borcine, aren't this Centrum still HALAL? If HALAL, how JAKIM verify this? The questions of how it was extracted from cow also need to be defined and clarified. The method of how cow being slaughtered, whether it's according to Islamic law or syarak must be defined too.
6) This Centrum originated from Canada, therefore JAKIM need to go round the globe to verify the methods of manufacturing of every multi-vitamins imported to Malaysia, as whether it's according to Islamic law or not. I have a strong believe that most of these multi-vitamins were manufactured by non Muslims countries. So how JAKIM going to do about it.
7) The true values of Islam being "Mudah" or easy was neglected by the body who should represent its. That body that makes simple things complicated.
8) The same thing also happen to most of our community, when a friend of mine, whose son was embroiled in disciplinary issue. Problem started when the discipline teacher c/w religious teacher began to be JAKIM in school, a someone who think was held responsible by God to implement the law of God.
9) What JAKIM going to says about the news exposed by OutSyed The Box about Tabasco Halal In Mecca. Tabasco was proclaimed HARAM in Malaysia, but in the country where our prophet was born, where all Muslims performing their pilgrimage and being look up to as a true Islamic country. How JAKIM going to answer this?
