Must read (taken from my fwd email)

Dear all,

Just for info.

Can We ask somebody who knows about this? We need the clearification

We can do our own little research as well…

FYI…Wallahuaklam

Assalamualaikum,

Terima kasih kerana forwardkan email ni, setelah membaca mesej ini, isteri terus ke peti sejuk mengambil bungkusan chesdale yang kami beli, To our surprise its contain ‘rennet’ eventhough it was marked halal by NZ Islamic Processed Food Management.. Entah berapa banyak babi telah kami makan… astaghfirullah haana’adzim. Sesiapa yang ada cara sila panjangkan maklumat ini kepada pihak berwajib.

Terima Kasih..

Sharing info on CHEESE which is used most in our local food operators & bakery (melalui Ceramah Ust Badrul Amin) last Sunday @ UIA :

Susu memerlukan sejenis bahan yg diperolehi dari perut mamalia (lembu & khinzir) utk membolehkan ianya ‘beku’ – separuh ‘beku’ dipanggil keju manakala ‘beku’ jadi ‘whey powder’. Both ingredients are used widely in our daily food intake – pizza(s), cheese cakes, tart cheese or anything with cheese, cookies etc. The big Q – even if bahan dari perut ‘lembu’ being used to make the cheese – how do we know ‘lembu’ tu disembelih mengikut syariah Islam?

How do we know the same ‘lembu’ being used in our food intake?

Unless, we (muslim) produced our own cheese – is there any in our local market? Pls share.

Conclusion – even tho memang payah, cuz kena explain panjang-lebar ngan my kids, InsyaAllah, Pizza Hut, Domino, anything contains CHEESE – gonna be NO NO from now on. This is not boikot but – menjaga akidah kita, semampu kita, within our control/power kerana ALLAH melalui penjagaan makanan kita yg akan menjadi darah daging.

Talking about cheese, as said by ustaz, memang betullah untuk bekukan cheese tu, they need bahan dari perut khinzir atau lembu. Masa di States dulu, I studied Human Nutrition and my Jewish Prof. memang every now and then masa tu kept reminding me to check cheese yang I beli untuk class commercial food production, cos dia jewish pun tak makan khinzir, I mesti pastikan dari ingredients cheese tu yg bahan pembekunya must be pepsinogen [lembu] dan bukan rennet[khinzir]. Kalau di States, 70% cheese guna rennet.
