Arab countries are interested in Russian COVID vaccines recognized as halal.

Negotiations on the use of Russian vaccines against coronavirus are currently being conducted with many Arab countries due to the conclusion on canonical permissibility -halality of the drug, Rushan, First Deputy Chairman of the Spiritual Board of Muslims of the Russian Federation (SUM RF) said on Wednesday Abbyasov.

“Currently, there is an active dialogue with government departments of many Islamic countries of the world regarding the use of Russian vaccines against COVID-19, and  A significant impetus for the development of this dialogue in this situation was given by the theological conclusion -a fatwa of our Ulema Council on canonical permissibility, that is, halality of Russian vaccines, and, in particular, Sputnik V, - said Abbyasov at  Medicine in the conditions of COVID-19" of the international economic summit "Russia - the Islamic world: KazanSummit 2021".

This theological conclusion provided the Muslims of Russia and their fellow believers abroad with an additional argument in favor of vaccination. In particular, according to Abbyasov, this opinion is shared by the leadership of the department for control over food and drugs of Indonesia, the largest Muslim country in the world.

In March of this year, the Council of Ulemas of the Spiritual Muslim Board of the Russian Federation recognized the use of the Sputnik V vaccine as permissible from the point of view of Islam, and the international center for standardization and certification « Halal" awarded the drug with the appropriate certificate. A similar conclusion on halality was issued in early June for the Epivaccorona vaccine.

The 12th International Economic Summit "Russia -Islamic World: KazanSummit 2021" will take place on July 28-30, 2021 in Kazan. Representatives of 48 countries and 25 regions of Russia take part in the work of the summit. The summit is aimed at development of cooperation and maintenance of dialogue between Russia and countries participants of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation in economic, political and cultural spheres.
