Bone marrow powder supplement

Fatwaa ID: 1863

السلام عليكم مفتي صاحب
I make dua that you are with aafiyah.
Question: can a bone marrow powder supplement be taken if it is made from bovine bones, brains and spinal cord?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

The brains and the spinal cords will have to be sourced from halaal-slaughtered animals. If they are not, then the bone marrow powder supplement would be haraam. The default would be that they are not halaal-slaughtered unless stated otherwise.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
