View Full Version : Halal sweets - pig shaped??

This may be a strange question, but I'll ask it anyway.

I popped into out local halal supermarket and spotted some sweets on the shelf, which are specifically advertised as being halal.
The strange thing is, they come in shapes of pigs heads and shrimps.
Does that strike anybody else as odd?

If I bought some for the children of our Muslim neighbours, would they possibly cause offence?
I thought I'd ask here first ...

Thanks

I wouldn't eat those sweets, ever! Although I laugh at this.

I have a feeling you wouldn't even bother looking what shape the sweets are, brother ... :D
Am I right???

Still, don't you think it's strange that anybody would produce halal sweets in the shape of pigs?

yap , that's strange ....pigs heads ...personally I won't like to eat that . Shrimps is ok .


But if a sweet does not have alcohol mixed in it , then prepared even by non Muslims is ok for Muslims . So , most probably no one should take any offence ...but may be it's better if u buy something normal ...not unusual like pig head sweets :statisfie

i find it weird, like its kinda of a clash of ideas lol, but there are halaal hot dogs, halaal burgers lol, and they jus change the meat, and the same way, they change the actual produce, so its halaal, so i think its fine!

and in your case like you went out of your way to buy them, i would appreciate that, and hopefully your neighbours will aswell:D

Heck yeah. Even though it might be ridicilous, I'd start getting suspicious how halal are those sweets really? Who is that jerk who dares to make halal sweets shaped in forms of haram? And for kids who love sweets. Such provocation.

I'd seriously rant at the owners for buying those, there are loads of better stuff!

Next time I go, I'll check what the name of the producer is ... and we can write a petition!

Al-Zaara, think of your blood pressure! Now, now, sit down and count to ten ... S-L-O-W-L-Y ...
That's better! :D

I wouldn't eat the sweetest and most tasteful chocoloate in the form of a pig, if avoidable. How halal it even might be. It's like... Having clear mineral water inside of an whisky bottle, with all the text on, saying whisky, this is yummy or whatever is written (;D) etc.

LOL I'm trying glo, I'm trying! I'm off to make some green tea now.

Dawatul-Allah - Yes, definitely. I'm usually quite picky of what I buy for I have had times where I had some not-so-sweet surprises after buying some food. I try to check who the producer is and what it contains as often as I can, inshaAllah.

as a Muslim , i think it's better if we ( Muslims ) don't buy halal things which come in a shape of haram things.

Getting used to with pig & other haram stuff may make us less careful about stay away from haram in future . So , as a
pre -caution , I won't buy or eat pig head sweet .

I agree with Sis Zaara. It may be halaal but then the question is, why is it in the shape of a pig? Is it some weird conspiracy or something? Somebody's joke on Islam? Wouldn't the producers, who were careful enough to make their products halaal, know that pigs are the primary haraam animals?

If somebody gave them to me, I would thank them extremely politely, and when they were gone, flush them down the drain.

halal seems to be such an easy stamp these day people so dont take everything that has the halal stamp to be halal.

and if its a pig head then no i wouldnt eat it.

the reason why i am guessing it is made as a pig head is not for offensive purposes but the pig headed jelly sweets are quie popular for the haraam jelly sweets. swiggly snakes, cola bottles pigs etc...

That is really wierd the fact a muslim person would make halal pig head shaped candy. Personally, I would be really offended if a non muslim gave me that candy.
