I hope you are in the best state of imaan and health. I have a very important question which i need an answer to as soon as possible. My niece has been suffering from eczema for along time. She has tried many medication which have not helped her at all. Just recently the doctor has prescribed her with a different type of medicine called Neoral Soft Gelatin capsules Cyclosporin. I wanted to know whether the Gelatin mentioned in this medication is Halaal or not? What should my niece do in this situation? As mentioned she has been on many medication before and continuesto suffer from this illness.

In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.

It is permissible for your niece to use the medication.

And Allah knows best
