It is prohibited to consume such a multivitamin capsule that contains gelatin which was derived from either a pig or such an animal (e.g. cow) that was not slaughtered according to Islamic law. Alternatively, you may consume multivitamins which its gelatin is either fish or plant-based. In addition, multivitamins in the form of tablets are also widely available.
