Is ‘Kek Lapis Sarawak’ Already In The Market Halal?

JAKIM confirmed that Pure Creamery Butter-Golden Churn sold in Malaysia is non-halal because it contains pig DNA (please click here).

JAKIM now confirms that the Golden Churn Butter is non-halal.

The Star wrote that, ‘Golden Churn butter is a favoured ingredient in ‘Kek Lapis Sarawak‘ or Sarawak Layered-cake’.

Kek Lapis Sarawak are beautiful and tasty too and it is very hard to make them.

So, if a baker had already sold ‘Kek Lapis Sarawak’ that used Golden Churn butter to Muslims, what should he/she do?

What if a baker had already baked a lot of ‘Kek Lapis Sarawak’ that used Golden Churn butter and he/she now realised that the butter is not- halal; what should the baker do?

If we had already bought a ‘Kek Lapis Sarawak’, how do we know if they use Golden Churn butter or not?

During Eid, should we eat ‘Kek Lapis Sarawak’ at our friends’ or families’ houses?

And what about other cookies and cakes that may used Golden Churn butter?

I am happy that JAKIM works hard to make sure that Muslims know if thing is non-halal.

Please send a comment for an answer.

Now we should bake our own cakes and cookies 😉

So Muslims cannot eat Golden Churn butter or any food that use Golden Churn butter in their ingredients.

Muslims should be very careful during Eid because some bakers may have used Golden Churn butter to bake cakes and cookies.

I love creamy butter and luckily we eat Lurpak at home.

TV AlHijrah

TV AlHijrah is a television company owned by JAKIM.

It is one of the new television channel in Malaysia.

I love to watch TV AlHijrah because most of the programs promote  good values and do not have much violence.

My favourite program is ‘3rd & Bird’ but sadly the program is now replaced by ‘Peep and The Big Wide World’ 😕

I enjoy watching ‘Peep and The Big Wide World’ but I prefer ‘3rd & Bird’ because its story line is more interesting, it has lots of wonderful songs and the animation is so beautiful and so cute 🙂

‘3rd and Bird’ is created by Josh Selig, who is also the creator of ‘Wonder Pets’.

Please >>>click here<<< for my post on ‘3rd & Bird’. 

I also like to watch ‘Tao Shu, ‘Muhammad Utusan Terakhir’, ‘Ejen Halal’ and ‘Menu Alam’.

I told him to air a new animation series, ‘Small Potatoes’ on TV AlHijrah 😉

‘Small Potatoes’ is created by Josh Selig who wrote one of my favourite songs, ‘Imagination’ 🙂

Uncle Nizal used to work for TV3.

But now he works for TV AlHijrah.

The programs that TV AlHijrah airs promotes good values.

I told him that TV AlHijrah should buy the rights to air ‘Small Potatoes’ and ‘The Olive Branch’ because both television series promote good values, fun and the animations are very beautiful.

They have nice and beautiful songs too.

‘Small Potatoes’ and ‘The Olive Branch’ are produced by the Little Airplane Productions.

TV Al Hijrah used to air another animated series from the Little Airplane Productions that I really love watching named ‘3rd & Bird’.

    Wacana Pemikiran Dan Pembinaan Ummah 2: Membenteras Gerakan Pluralisme Agama

    On Tuesday December 14, 2010, I went to the Masjid Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur for ‘Wacana Pemikiran & Pembinaan Ummah 2: Membanteras Gerakan Pluralisme Agama’.

     

    Uncle Ustaz (Dr) Muhammad Uthman El Muhammady was one of the speakers at the 'Wacana'.

     

    The day before, I helped in the preparation of the ‘Wacana’.

    I helped to prepare the files on the day before the program.

    I put up direction signage, prepared the files and carried boxes.

    I helped to distribute the files for the 'Wacana'.

    The program was reported on the front page of ‘Utusan Malaysia’ yesterday.

    Utusan Malaysia is one of the main newspapers in Malaysia.

    It will be aired on JAKIM’s TV channel, TV ALHIJRAH.
