Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah

Is it enough to take out the medicine out of the haram capsule and only take-in the medicine?


بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

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

Only an expert in the medical field can tell whether the traces of the haram remain in the actual medicine after removing its shell or it becomes completely pure from haram.

Therefore, due to the ambiguity, it is best to refrain completely from medications that have haram shells and find other alternatives.

Only Allāh Ta’ālā knows best
