Is nutmeg haraam

Assalaamu alaykum mufti saab
InshaAllah this reaches you in good imaan and health

I have been reading different articles and also the BAHISHTI ZEWAR book which states that Apart from alcohol, it is permissible to consume all other intoxicants on the condition that they are consumed only for medication. Furthermore, only that amount will be permissible which does not intoxicate the person. If a person consumes an amount that intoxicates him, it will become haraam upon him. It is also permissible to apply medicines that contain such intoxicants. Such intoxicants are: opium, nutmeg, saffron, etc

This is from the chapter :Halaal and Haraam,and category:intoxicants

and other sources say that it is haraam completly could u please give me clarification and if possible evidence from quraan and sunnah either way

could u please advise me if the BAHISHTI ZEWAR book is a good source of information for me

jazakAllahum khairun
May Allah swt prolong your life and may He fill it with His blessings,,,ameen

If a company uses glycerin in its product, e.g. in toothpaste or mouthwash, can we use it if according to the company any animal by-product used is chemically altered during manufacturing and no longer resembles the original substance by the time it's added to the product? The company says that they have no way to telling what their source of glycerin is. It could be vegetable based or animal based, in which case it could be either pork or beef. So am I allowed to use such toothpaste or mouthwash which contain glycerin?

Non HMC meat

assalaamu alaikum,

In a recent edition of the HMC newsletter it stated (something like) that it is not permissable to take anothers word for it that the meat is halal and that one needs to make sure either individually or through an organisation. I understand how one does this by an organisation e.g we now have hmc, but how do we do this individually? with non hmc outlets, we ask them (muslim owners) if their meat is halal, obviously they will reply it is halal, what more can we do? we cannot individually be there at every slaughter and follow it through to the counter obviously, so what are we expected to do in this matter?

Raw liver tablets

i want to know if consuming raw liver tablets are halal. the tablets are made from dessicated liver and are prescribed by doctors for iron deficiency aneamia. i have tried a whole range of medicines and nothing has really worked so i have been advised to take these from a doctor.
the tablets are made by a non-muslim company and the tablets are made from beef liver, which is most probably not slaughtered in the halal way.
