Medicine Derived From The Swine. by Taamas111 (m): 5:40pm on January 13

Question

For the treatment of disorder of my
pancreas a doctor has prescribed a drug
containing pancreatin from the pancreas of
swine and there appear to be no substitute
available here in Rome. Being a Muslim I
must avoid that but considering the medical
condition I thought of seeking Islam's view in
such situation.

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His slave and Messenger.

Undoubtedly, all the limbs of a pig are
impure, and the jurists agreed that it
is generally forbidden to seek treatment with
an impurity for the general evidence proving
the prohibition of being treated by it.

However, some jurists permitted
being treated with an impurity with the
following three conditions:
1- There should be a necessity for
consuming this medicine for the lack
of another pure medicine that could
be consumed instead.
2- A just and trustworthy Muslim
doctor should confirm that this
impurity is a medicine or that the
patient has solid medical knowledge
and knows that this medicine is
indeed a cure.
3- If the medicine is an intoxicant, it
must be an ingredient with other
medicine [it should not constitute
the entire medicine, it should be an
ingredient added to it].

If all the above conditions are met, then it
becomes permissible for you to be treated
with the medicine that you mentioned above,
but if one of the above conditions is not
met, it is not permissible to be treated with
it for the general prohibition of using an
impure product.
you should know that Allah is All-Knower and
All-Seer and He Knows everything about you.
Just thinking that there is no other medicine
is not sufficient; rather, you should seek and
endeavour to find a permissible medicine and
ask the doctors about this.
Allah Knows best.
