Clover Cream

CLOVER CREAM, according to the manufacturers is Haraam despite SANHA’s claim of ‘halaal’. Clover wrote in response to a Muslim lady:

“The Clover cream has not been Halaal certified for a number of years now due to the fact that the stabilizer used in the cream is not Halaal suitable.”

Contradicting the manufacturers, SANHA wrote to the Muslim lady: “Clover Fresh Cream is a Halaal suitable product as per the information at our disposal.” SANHA is silent regarding the “information at its disposal”. While halaalizing a haraam product by SANHA is not at all surprising, this carrion halaalizer has thrown all caution to the winds. Despite the manufacturer saying that the stabilizer used in the cream is not halaal, SANHA persists that the haraam cream is halaal.

Although the statement of a non-Muslim relative to Deeni issues, e.g. halalal and haram, is not valid, the contention of SANHA is worse. SANHA is supposed to be aware of the fact that stabilizers are derived from both animal and plant sources. Even non-Muslims are fully aware that animal-derived ingredients are not halaal for Muslims. Since the stabilizer used in the cream is derived from animal sources, the company said that it is not “Halaal suitable”. As such, SANHA’s claim is baseless and haram. CLOVER CREAM CONTAINING ANIMAL STABILIZER IS HARAAM.
