Is it permissable to consume Asafoetida?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

is Asafoetida(hing) halal in islam?


In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salaamu โ€˜alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

Asafoetida is a latex gum from the celery and/or parsley family which is exuded from the rhizome root of several species of the perennial herb, Ferula[1]. This is usually referred to as hing in the subcontinent and is used as a medicine and as a condiment in food.

Accordingly, it will be permissible to use and consume asafoetida[2].

And Allaah Taโ€™aala Knows Best.
