Eating produce that contains hormones
Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Recently it has been heard that fruit and vegetables are being injected with male and female hormones. This may not be healthy for people to consume and may develop an addition of extra hormones in males and females. if this is haram please could you let me know and explain fully.

Praise be to Allaah.
Eating anything that is harmful to one's health is haraam, even if it is something that in principle is good and permissible. If it is proven that these hormones are harmful, then it is not permissible to eat these foods. But it has to be proven that they are harmful, and this should not be the matter of mere doubt, because the basic principle is that they are permissible.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
