However, if they do contain unlawful ingredients, then it would be permissible to take such vaccines subject to the following conditions: 1) He knows that there is cure in the vaccine. 2) There is no alternative which contains halal (permissible) ingredients. 3) A pious Muslim doctor informs him that there is cure in the vaccine.1 Only Allah knows best Written by Maulana Mohammad Ahsan Osmani Checked and approved by Mufti Mohammed Tosir Miah Darul Ifta Birmingham
