A health supplement called Deer Velvet

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

AsSalamualaykum Mufti Saheb,

My question is regarding the health supplement called Deer Velvet. Based on my understanding, it’s extracted from the deer antlers, essentially the outer velvet covering. Please check out the links below to get more insight on it.

Is it halal to consume it in powder form?

Answer

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

As-salฤmu โ€˜alaykum wa-rahmatullฤhi wa-barakฤtuh.

According to our understanding, deer velvet supplement is made from the antlers of young deer.[i] It is used to treat illnesses such as rheumatoid arthritis etc.ย  The supplement is halaal for consumption.[ii]

And Allah Taโ€™ฤla Knows Best
