Use of any product which has cow urine is banned in Islam, the Darul Uloom in Deoband, Uttar Pradesh, has ruled, an official said on Monday.

Darul Uloom, the highest seat of education in Islam, was responding to a query by a commoner about the products of Patanjali, the brand of yoga guru-turned-entrepreneur Baba Ramdev. The Deoband seminary said that the products which had “declared contents of urine of cow” were ‘najayaz’ (unlawful) in Islam.

A person had asked the Darul Ifta department about the sanctity of such use. The seminary, in its response dated August 18, clarified that while other products of Patanjali could be used, any product which declares that it had cow urine in it, should not be used by Muslims, as it was in contravention of the tenets of the religion.
