Is spam halal? In this post, we will explain whether spam is halal or haram. Spam is made up of six ingredients: pork and ham meat, salt, water, potato starch, sugar, and sodium nitrite, a food preservative found in bacon, hot dogs, cured meats, sausage, and smoked fish. Aside from the addition of potato starch in the 1990s, the recipe for Spam has remained relatively unchanged.
Is Spam Halal?
No, spam is not halal. This is due to the fact that spam is made from pork. In islam, the pig is haram and najis (impure); it is haram to eat its meat or fat, and it is not permissible to eat a little of it or part of it. If some parts of its meat or fat is found in bread, food or medicine, it is haraam to consume it at all.
Is Spam Haram?
Yes! Spam is Haram. If something haraam such as pork is added to permissible foods, they become haraam, even if it is only a little or it is called by a different name.
The Muslim has to be careful concerning his food and if there is some food ingredient that he does not know about he has to ask about it or not eat it so as to be on the safe side.
Why Spam Is Haram?
If food or drink is made from any part of the pig, then it is undoubtedly haram, because Allaah says:
“Say (O Muhammad SAW): “I find not in that which has been revealed to me anything forbidden to be eaten by one who wishes to eat it, unless it be Maytah (a dead animal) or blood poured forth (by slaughtering or the like), or the flesh of swine (pork); for that surely, is impure”.Surah al-An’aam verse 145
Allaah has forbidden pork because it is impure and unclean.

One of the things that distinguishes the Muslim from others is that he pays attention to the shar’i rulings that have to do with his life.
That includes his earnings, his food, his drink. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) stated the importance of halaal food to the Muslim in this world and the Hereafter.
He stated that eating haraam food is a cause of du’aa’s not being answered and with regard to the Hereafter, there is a stern warning to the one who nourishes his body with haraam things.
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:
“Every body that is nourished with haraam things, the Fire is more befitting for it.” Narrated by al-Tabaraani; classed as saheeh by Shaykh al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’ (4519).
You should beware of eating that which is it not permissible for you to eat, and you should seek out halaal food, even if it is more expensive than other food, and even if obtaining it involves more effort.
