Pearl of Wisdom

'I visited the Prophet (SAWA) and he was sitting on a straw mat, so I sat down and saw that he was wearing a loincloth and nothing else, and the mat had made a mark on his side. I saw about a handful of barley there, and a tan hide spread out to one side of the room, and I also saw raw hide hung up, so my eyes gushed with tears. He (SAWA) asked, 'What is making you cry, O son of Khattab?' He said, ?O Prophet of Allah, how can I not cry when this mat has made a mark on your side, and I do not see anything in your storage, other than what I see. And there are Kis ra and the Caesar with their fruits and rivers, and you are a prophet of Allah and His chosen one, and this is your storage warehouse?!' He said, ?O son of Khattab, do you not want us to have the Hereafter and leave the world to them?!'

Subject: Halal cheese?
Question: Hi,
How is there Halal cheese, what does it mean by this?
Answer: Salaam alaykum,

Yes, there are halal and haram cheeses. Cheese can be made by putting a najis item into the cheese culture in order to make different types of cheeses and provide various flavors. One would have to refer to the maraja's rulings regarding each specific instance or their general rulings regarding najasat.
