Islam allows the use of medication sourced from haram (impure) substance, based on the dharurah situation. Jurist (fuqaha) have agreed to allow the use of such medication based on the prevailing dharurah where the situation is critical to preserve human life as proven by a physician. This paper focuses on the collection of the Discourse of the fatwa Committee of Malaysian National Council for Islamic Religious Affairs regarding the use of swine between 1981 and 2012. An analysis is performed to examine whether all uses of swine are regarded as haram (prohibited) or there are exceptions. The study shows there are several fatwas that permit the use of swine based on dharurah method. It is obviously the easiest method to be applied in accordance with the spirit of Shariah which gives flexibility to its followers when facing complicated and demanding situation.
