Saya terbaca di www.islamonline.net berkenaan persoalan ini, dan panelis feqh di sana menjawab,
"..There is nothing wrong with gelatin even if it comes from haram meat. The fatwa of the fiqh council is that it is considered halal because even if it is made from haram meat it has undergone fundamental process of transformation through certain chemical changes that is called “Istihalah” in Islamic law. So, the ruling of pork does not apply to it anymore and we are still allowed to use it.
Harap dapat penjelasan dari ustaz² di sini.
