  • I have a question about zabiha halal chicken.They said that, there is a large number of Islamic Scholars (both from Arabic and Indo-Pakistani cultures) who have issued "the Fatwas" (religious verdict/decree) that chicken slaughtered by electrically driven machines/blades are perfectly halal.There is absolutely no reference from Quran and Sunnah (sayings/practices of the Prophet Muhammad Peace be upon Him) that "hand" is a basic requirement for making the slaughter of birds etc. as halal. A person's hand never kills/slaughters a chicken. It is always the knife (whether hand-held or electric rotary blade) that does the killing. In any mechanical engineering terminology, a knife is also a machine - a manual one. The hand held knife draws the energy for it's "to add fro" movement from the person holding the knife, whereas a rotary blade for its "circular" movement is driven by electrical energy. The Four basic requirements in Halal Slaughter are as follows: 1. Allah's (God's) name must be pronounced at the time of slaughter (Bismillah Allahu Akbar). 2. Killing instrument must be very sharp so as to not cause undue pain to the animals. 3. Blood should be drained out properly. 4. The above steps should be performed by a Muslim. 2. The blesser starts the processing line by reciting Allah's name and Tasmiah (Bismillah Allahu Akbar). The blessers continue to repeat this Tasmiah during the entire production at the time of slaughter. So please guide me why it is not halal? Thank You. - Anonymous user

    UK: Muslim scholars reject machine slaughtered meat as Halal

    Courtesy of www.halalfocus.com Date June 27, 2012

    Filed in Europe, Halal Integrity, Meat & Poultry, Retail, UK on 27/06/2012 with no comments

    By Naumaan Farooq, Asian Express

    After scholars unanimously rejected machine slaughtered meat as being halal, calls have been made for a top fast food outlet to stop mislabelling its chicken ‘halal.’

    Around 40 of the country’s leading Islamic Scholars have called on fast food giant KFC to stop selling their meat as halal which they say is slaughtered using machines.

    At a conference at the Hijaz Centre, Nuneaton some of the countries most respected Imams passed a vote saying machine slaughtered chickens were not halal because the prescribed holy words needed to be said on each individual bird.

    July last year, KFC had 92 ‘halal’ outlets in the UK and many Muslims now feel their food is not killed in accordance with the proper Islamic method. The issue is whether meat can be halal if it has been slaughtered using mechanical methods which scholars said was not allowed.

    Traditionally, halal meat is killed by hand and must be blessed by the person doing the job. But some Muslims say a mechanised form is also now acceptable.

    Speaking at the conference one of the scholars said: “Machine slaughter of animals is totally not allowed in Islam. The prescribed holy words should be said on every animal and not just one.

    “Here we have a scenario when one person just flicks a switch and hundreds of chickens die, that’s not Islamic.”

    Halal is the description of food and drink Muslims are allowed to consume under Islamic dietary laws defined in the Quran and in the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).

    Classifying of halal food can only be carried out by a Muslim expert in the laws.

    The meat is traditionally prepared by slaughtering the animal with a quick cut to the throat with a sharp knife to allow all blood to drain out, the idea being that the meat is cleaner. The slaughterman is required to say the traditional proclamation of faith in one god as the animal is killed.

    At present two separate organisations regulate the halal food industry in the UK. The Halal Food Authority (HFA) says using machines is OK, as long as the meat is still blessed. It argues that advances in technology mean methods have to change and though a machine does the killing, the meat is still blessed by a Muslim slaughterman.

    But the Halal Monitoring Committee (HMC) says animals should be slaughtered by hand and using a machine is not halal and not permissible. It argues mechanisation contradicts a fundamental principle of halal – that the person who slaughters the animal is the same person who recites the words over it.

    KFC says it is following the guidance offered by what it considers a reputable adviser.

    At a meeting with the fast food outlet’s representatives two years ago it was confirmed to the Lancashire Council for Mosques that KFC’s chickens were stunned and mechanically slaughtered

    The sub group expressed concerns about the mechanical slaughtering of animals and told KFC that the Muslim Council of Britain supported their position.

    The meeting concluded that KFC’s Halal Supply Chain did not fulfil the LCM Halal criteria and therefore cannot be termed as halal.

    Naved Syed, Member of Eblex Halal Steering Group and responsible for organising the conference in Nuneaton said: “We need to resolve this matter as quickly as possible.

    “The problem with machine slaughter is you cannot perform Tasmiah (Holy prayer) on each animal when you machine killing 20,000 chickens an hour.

    “All of these issues need to be addressed especially on the subject of machine slaughter by the religious authorities.

    “With over 40 Muftis and Imams having made the decision it will enable us to lay the foundation for halal here in the UK.

    “With Ramadan just around the corner this problem needs to be resolved as quickly as possible.”

    Speaking in a recent interview Yunus Dudhwala, chairman of HMC, said: “Halal is a very sacred part of a Muslim’s diet and many Muslims do not even know what they are eating when it’s certified as halal in this way.”

    ACCORDING TO HALAL TRIBUNE HFA (A BRITISH HALAL CERTIFYING ORGANIZATION) CEASES TO ACCEPT MECHANICAL SLAUGHTERING OF HALAL POULTRY

    2nd December 2013

    Press Release

    "HFA CEASES TO ACCEPT MECHANICAL SLAUGHTERING OF HALAL POULTRY

    As a result of various consultations and procedural review by the Board of HFA Scholars
    and Trustees, Halal Food Authority (HFA) has decided to amend its certification policy and
    consequently, mechanical slaughtering of poultry would no longer be covered by the HFA
    Halal Standard.
    Poultry slaughterhouses that employ a mechanical fixed blade (mechanised killing) to
    slaughter birds would no longer be accredited by the HFA for halal status with effect from 3RD MARCH 2014".

    US and Canadian Halal meat certification organizations should follow the same so that US and Canadian Muslims consumers will not have to be worry about the Halal status of chicken.

    MCG thinks this is due to a declaration by 40 British Islamic Scholars who declared in 2012 that machine slaughtering of chicken is not consider as Zabiha.

    MCG is not in Halal meat certification business.

    12/11/1

    MCG Ulema do not consider machine slaughtered chicken or lamb as Zabihah. It says in Quran that Allah's name must be pronounce on each animal otherwise it will not consider as Zabiha Halal.

    There was no machine at the time of Prophet Mohammed Sallallahu wa Alaihisalum. Slughtering method are mentioned under Sharia rules. Maple Lodge chicken in Canada are not Halal because they are machine slaughtered.

    It need further investigation to be consider Halal. The chicken must be hand slaughtered by a Muslim. The sauces ingredients has to be known to find out meat by product ingredients and alcohol in flavors.

  • If only whey powder is mentioned in items as chocolate, cake, ice cream ; how to make sure that halal whey powder is used - Sabiha Khan
  • AOA

    If it does not have kosher symbol on the package then it is not Halal. If it contains alcohol in flavor then it is not Halal. Whey is only Halal if the product has kosher symbol.

    From our FAQ:

    Is Whey a Halal ingredient:

    Muslims think that if whey is a milk based ingredient then it has to be Halal, but this is not true. There are two kinds of whey, one is sweet or rennet whey and the other is acid whey. Acid whey is obtained during the making of acid type cheese such as cottage cheese. Sweet or rennet whey is used more in food products then acid whey. Sweet whey or rennet whey is a by-product of rennet cheese  such as cheddar cheese or Mozzarella cheese. Whey is a portion of milk remaining after coagulation and removal of curd. Whey is Halal only if the Halal starter culture bacteria, Halal medium on which starter culture bacteria are grown (Starter culture bacteria are Halal if they are obtained from milk source not meat source, and media on which these starter culture bacteria are grown. These requirements can only obtained if the cheese and whey are Halal or Kosher certified (which meet the Islamic dietary requirements). A Halal or Kosher symbol (which meet the Islamic dietary requirements) appears on a food package containing whey indicating that it is manufactured under Halal or Kosher supervision. MCG considers Lactose Halal only if it is Halal or Kosher certified.

This product has to have a kosher symbol to make D-Tocopherol and artificial color as Halal without it they are not Halal.

    halal Whipping Cream Whipping Cream Sealtest According to brother Syed's e-mail: please refer to the email chain and tell me are sealtest creams halal or not I've emailed them and inquired and they say they use isopropyl alcohol. Dear Mr Syed, We thank you for your interest in Sealtest products. According to our carrageenan supplier, Isopropyl alcohol is used during the extraction of the carrageenan we use in our Sealtest creams. No other solvents are used. Also according to our supplier, the residual level of alcohol present in the carrageenan after extraction does not exceed 0.1 %. Hope this helps. Best regards.

    This bakery makes bread , pastry, take and bake products. Pastry is always has flavor in it. You have to send this e-mail to that QA Manager who does not what he talking about alcohol. I spend most of my life working in baking companies:

    " is alcohol used as a solvent in flavor; alcohol is a hidden ingredient or processing aid ingredient of a flavor, it will not appear in the ingredients statement. The knowledge of presence or absence of alcohol in flavor is only known to your QA or Technical service department because they have access to the specification of flavors. In the specification of flavor, your flavor supplier has written  the name of solvent or carrier used in that particular flavor. So please request your QA or Technical service department to find out whether alcohol was used or not in the flavor as a solvent. The consumer department can not answer this question because they do not have access to specification of ingredients".

    Since their website do not provide the ingredients so you have to check your self if the following ingredients are used:

    1) L-Cysteine made from human hair or chicken or duck feathers, (2) Wine, (3) Liquor, (4) Beer batter, (5) Rum flavor, (6) Ethyl Alcohol or ethanol or Alcohol as a main ingredient, (7) Cochineal or Carmine, (8) Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce (containing Wheat & Soy as ingredients), (9) Brewer’s Yeast or Brewer Yeast Extract from byproduct of beer making, (10) Nucleotides ( Torula yeast is the source of Nucleotides but it is grown on Alcohol)), (11) Pectin ( A Mashbooh ingredient, Alcohol may be used during processing for crystization so it needs investigation), (12) Vanilla Extract, (13) Wine Vinegar, (14) Balsamic Vinegar, (15) Apple Cider Vinegar (Mashbooh, needs to investigation for fermented apple cider), (16) Natural or Artificial Flavor (If hidden or processing aid ethyl alcohol is used as a solvent then it is not Halal), (17) Confectionary Glaze or Resinous Glaze (Alcohol is used in both), (18) Torula Yeast grown on alcohol, (19) Carrageenan ( A Mashbooh ingredient, if ethyl alcohol or Ethanol or Alcohol is used during its processing then it is not Halal), (20) Natural Vanilla or Natural Vanilla Flavor(because Alcohol is used in its extraction), (21) Any grape wine by-product such grape skin powder, grape seed oil, grape seed extract, (22) Gelatin (23) Kosher Gelatin.
