Topic #35: Tasting haram food or drink but not eating it, is it permissible?
Tasting haram food or drink but not eating it, is it permissible?
If the food or drink has been declared haram forever in the Qur'an like Pig's flesh or Alcohol then even tasting of it is considered as haram (forbidden).
If the food or drink is not forever haram like any food is haram while fasting but once the fast is over it becomes halal then tasting of it will not be considered haram even while fasting.
And Allah knows best!
