  • Animal shortening can be if it is of a halal animal. But in the west

    animals are slaughtered un-islamically and pork is also eaten. So

    if you live in the west, it is better to avoid animal shortening. You

    will earn more sawab by avoiding sins than by worshiping nawafil.

  • If it says that it is suitable for vegetarians, (this is probable because animal fats are rarely used in biscuits these days) then you should be halal to eat.
