Deer Antler Velvet Extract

Answered according to Shafi'i Fiqh by

Question: Is deer antler velvet extract pure, and can it be consumed?


Wa alaykum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

Dear questioner,

Thank you for your important question.

Yes, deer antler velvet extract is pure, and it may be consumed (Minhaj al Talibin, Nawawi).

Allah Most High has said, ‘And Allah has made for you from your homes a place of rest and made for you from the hide’s of the animal’s tents which you find the light on your day of travel and your day of encampment; and from their wool, fur and hair is furnishing and provision for a time’ (Qur’an, 16: 80).

This verse tells us that fur and wool and the like from edible animals are pure (Al Majmu, Nawawi).

I pray this helps.
