Question:As salaamu alaykum,

We have falsely assumed that vitamin tablets were okay because they do not have a gelatine capsule. But they contain vitamins derived from pork gelatine. What should we do?

Answer: Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

I pray this finds you in the best of health and faith, insha’Allah.

If the tablets contained pork, you should not have taken them. If you accidentally took them, you should repent for your error.

And Allah knows best.
