Q: Please could you assist as to whether it would be permissible to use capsules appetite suppressant. I’m not sure of the origin of the capsule.
A: Find out whether the capsules are gelatin capsules. If they are gelatin capsules, then do not consume it. Rather, look for a halaal alternative.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
