    Mercy mission

    No money = can't come, too much money = buying a house = can't come.

    Any non-smoker coming from UK to LoS in the next couple of weeks, willing to pick up some duty free tobacco?

    Why? A perfectly good question. I brought stuff over in the past for other members when asked.

    I shit you not. My mum told me vegemite was made from vegetables and marmite from meat.
    So according to my mum, no, it is not halal.

    So according to my mum, no, it is not halal.
    She was right technically. Vegemite is yeast extract and I think Marmite is beef extract (or is that Bovril?).
    I think that would make them halal or at least not haram.

    Marmite is a vegan product (and safe for both vegan Jews and vegan Muslims).

    Ahhh, so it's Bovril and Bonnox that are beef extracts and Marmite is yeast.

    Muslims can make foods of unknown origin halal, simply by proclaiming 'bismillah' over the food before eating.

    Narrated Aisha: "Some people said, "O Allah's Apostle! Meat is brought to us by some people and we are not sure whether the name of Allah has been mentioned on it or not." Allah's Apostle said, "Mention the name of Allah and eat it." - Bukhari 34.273
    Antrobertson: Annoyed at others "ranting absurdities and falsities about her (Clinton's) campaign..."

    Antrobertson: Annoyed at others with 'views on climate change that run contrary to objective fact.'
