Respected questioner,

Tallow is fat from an animal which has been rendered, so products can be stored for extended periods without the need for refrigeration to prevent decomposition.

Thus if the fat was taken from a halal animal slaughtered in the Islamic manner it will be permissible to use.

And Allah knows best

Please remember me in your dua's
