Our Verdict: Haram and Not Suitable for Vegetarians
Our View: According to the position we understand and hold to be true, the change gelatin undergoes is not sufficient to be considered “essential transformation”. Thus, gelatin from unslaughtered animals–as is the case with most gelatin in the West–is unlawful.
