Video on Rennet coming up to tell people about the facts of Calf Rennet so they can make educated decisions on the issue instead of following Wikipedia.
This issue is largely irrelevant in 2020 because most Cheese is made using microbial Rennet.
Traditional Rennet Method:
The South African Ulama have misunderstood the issue because even the traditional method uses "pieces of animal" vs the Modern method uses enzymes so the traditional method is more of a problem then the modern method and not the other way around.
18AUG2020: WhatsApp sent to Mufti Faisal that the fatwa is backwards i.e. Modern method uses enzymes from contents while traditional methods uses actual pieces of flesh of the animal.
Evidence from Nabi (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam):
Evidence from Sahabah (RA):
حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو بَكْرٍ قَالَ: حَدَّثَنَا جَرِيرٌ عَنْ مُغِيرَةَ عَنْ أَبِي وَائِلٍ وَإِبْرَاهِيمَ قَالَا: " لَمَّا قَدِمَ الْمُسْلِمُونَ أَصَابُوا مِنْ أَطْعِمَةِ الْمَجُوسِ مِنْ جُبْنِهِمْ وَخُبْزِهِمْ ، فَأَكَلُوا ، وَلَمْ يَسْأَلُوا عَنْ ذَلِكَ ، وَوُصِفَ الْجُبْنُ لِعُمَرَ ، فَقَالَ: "اذْكُرُوا اسْمَ اللَّهِ عَلَيْهِ وَكُلُوهُ " رواه ابن أبي شيبة (5/130)
Jareer told us, from Mugheerah, from Abu Waa’il and Ibraaheem, who said: When the Muslims came, they got some food from the Magians, their cheese and bread, and they ate and did not ask about that. The cheese was described to ‘Umar, and he said: Mention the name of Allah over it and eat it. Narrated by Ibn Abi Shaybah (5/130).
وحَدَّثَنَا أَبُو بَكْرٍ قَالَ: حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو مُعَاوِيَةَ عَنِ الْأَعْمَشِ عَنْ شَقِيقٍ عَنْ عَمْرِو بْنِ شُرَحْبِيلَ قَالَ: " ذَكَرْنَا الْجُبْنَ عِنْد َعُمَرَ، فَقُلْنَا لَهُ إِنَّهُ يُصْنَعُ فِيهِ أَنَافِيحُ الْمَيْتَةِ، فَقَالَ: "سَمُّوا عَلَيْهِ وَكُلُوهُ" ، رواه ابن أبي شيبة (5/130)
Abu Bakr told us: Abu Mu‘aawiyah told us, from al-A‘mash, from Shaqeeq, from ‘Amr ibn Shurahbeel, who said: We mentioned cheese in the presence of ‘Umar, and we told him that it was made with rennet of animals that died of natural causes, and he said: Mention the name of Allah over it and eat it. Narrated by Ibn Abi Shaybah (5/130).
؟ وحَدَّثَنَا أَبُو بَكْرٍ قَالَ: حَدَّثَنَا وَكِيعٌ عَنْ سُفْيَانَ عَنْ جَحْشٍ عَنْ مُعَاوِيَةَ بْنِ قُرَّةَ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ : " أَنَّهُ سُئِلَ عَنِ الْجُبْنِ، فَقَالَ: "لَا بَأْسَ بِهِ، ضَعِ السِّكِّينَ وَاذْكُرِ اسْمَ اللَّهِ عَلَيْهِ وَكُلْ" رواه ابن أبي شيبة (5/130)
Abu Bakr told us: Wakee‘ told us, from Sufyaan, from Jahsh, from Mu‘aawiyah ibn Qurrah, from al-Hasan ibn ‘Ali that he was asked about cheese and said: There is nothing wrong with it, mention the name of Allah over it as you are cutting it, and eat. Narrated by Ibn Abi Shaybah (5/130).
Imam Abu Haneefa (RA):
Summary of discussion with Darul-Ifta
The issue in the Madhab is termed as "Khilaf-e-Qiyas" i.e. when evidence is authenticated then Qiyas (logic) is abandoned in the Madhab.
Mufti Taqi Usmani (HA) and American &amp;amp; British Ulama are abandoning Qiyas (logic) in favour of evidence.
