Halaal Multi Vitamins

Q: My mother is elderly, and in need of multi vitamins etc, but it is very difficult to find something which is halaal. What can I do?

. There are Halaal multi vitamins on the market. Speak to a Muslim medical practitioner who will advise you better and can prescribe according to your mother's condition. Secondly if your mother is very weak and frail and needs these multi-vitamins desperately, then she is allowed to take even the Haraam vitamins, but there certainly are Halaal available. After speaking to a pharmacist, he confirmed that there are 'vegetarian suitable' multi vitamins available. The ingredients are not from animals and the capsule does not contain gelatine. May Allah Ta'aala grant her Shifaa, Aameen.
