IMPORTANT: If there is no halal available then a Muslim is allowed to eat non-halal food.
Islam has laws regarding which foods can and cannot be eaten and also on the proper method of slaughtering an animal for consumption, known as dhabihah.
However if there is no other food available then a Muslim is allowed to eat non-halal food.
Surah 2:173 states:
If one is forced because there is no other choice, neither craving nor transgressing, there is no sin on him.

Surah 2:173 states:
If one is forced because there is no other choice, neither craving nor transgressing, there is no sin in him.
So it seems that when muslims are in non-Islamic countries it’s OK for them to eat non-halal food… the only requirement according to Sharia Law is to pray before when consuming non-halal foods. There is absolutely no need for halal meat in Non-Islamic countries like ours.
Surah 5:5 states:
“This day are things good and pure made lawful to you. The food of the People of the Book is lawful to you and yours is lawful to them.”
SO… WHY THE NEED FOR HALAL MEAT IN NON-ISLAMIC COUNTRIES?
I wonder why Muslims are demanding halal meat slaughtered in the Muslim way.
We have been told by Halal Authorities that Ritual Slaughter is a requirement of their religion.
But it seems this is clearly taqiyya they have been lying to us (again) in order to promote Islam.
ACCORDING TO SURAH 5:5 THE MEAT OF ANIMALS SLAUGHTERED BY CHRISTIANS OR JEWS IS ALREADY HALAL.
You can find this point made at pages 74-5 of:
Book: Modern Day Trojan Horse: Al-Hijra, The Islamic Doctrine of Immigration, Accepting Freedom or Imposing Sharia Law
The book is co-authored by Sam Solomon, a sharia jurist who left Islam.
“meat slaughtered by Jews and Christians is lawful for a Muslim”
The book makes use of the following translation (See First & Second & Third Comment)
“Made lawful to you this day are At Tayyibaat [all kinds of Halaal (lawful) foods, which Allaah has made lawful (meat of slaughtered eatable animals, milk products, fats, vegetables and fruits)]. The food (slaughtered cattle, eatable animals) of the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) is lawful to you and yours is lawful to them. (Lawful to you in marriage) are chaste women from the believers and chaste women from those who were given the Scripture (Jews and Christians) before your time when you have given their due Mahr (bridal-money given by the husband to his wife at the time of marriage), desiring chastity (i.e. taking them in legal wedlock) not committing illegal sexual intercourse, nor taking them as girlfriends”. (See Second & Third Comment)
Here is another translation
[5.5] This day (all) the good things are allowed to you; and the food of those who have been given the Book is lawful for you and your food is lawful for them; and the chaste from among the believing women and the chaste from among those who have been given the Book before you (are lawful for you); when you have given them their dowries, taking (them) in marriage, not fornicating nor taking them for paramours in secret; and whoever denies faith, his work indeed is of no account, and in the hereafter he shall be one of the losers. (Also see First & Next Comment)
So why this insistence on slaughtering animals in the hellish Muslim way?
And why are western governments allowing this totally unnecessary cruel slaughter to continue?
Everyone Should Watch This Video!
There are no images of Halal Slaughter the HORROR is the covert way that Halal is taking over our Food Chain in our country.
Halal meat is becoming an intrinsic part of your national diet whether you know it or not, whether you like it or not.
Islam WILL be controlling our Western political and social systems if we allow halal meat to continue.
We Must Protest!
It is completely unacceptable to use outdated 7th Century halal Ritual Slaughter methods in the 21st Century.
Let us write to those in power in Non-Islamic Countries and insist that we uphold our own traditions, norms and values.
Do it now!
Point out that this halal demand is a recent event.
The halal industry appears to have put all the emphasis on the idea that ‘halal’ is the issue, when the issue is actually whatever is haram should be rejected.
There is no mandate in the Qur’an to issue certificates as proof that something is halal.
Halal Certificates are a new invention – they are Bidd’ah – worse than sins!
The Qur’an clearly says that certain foods, such as pork and alcohol, are haram and must be avoided.
Anything that a Muslim considers is uncertain – mushboo – should be rejected too.
The halal industry are now involved in a HUGE Money Making Racket, as these self-appointed halal authorities endorse products and services as being halal.
Different Islamic factions have differing ideas about what is halal.
These Halal Authorities are charging huge amounts of money to companies for their Halal Certificates – this is extortion – and completely unnecessary.
There is no agreed Global Halal Standard – there is no agreed ‘authentic’ halal.
In conclusion, the demand for ‘halal’ in Non-islamic countries is a recent phenomena.
Muslims were never asked to appoint Halal Authorities to tell them what ‘halal’ is
Individuals are just required to reject what they think is ‘haram’ – and then pray over what they eat.
The Qur’an says this is a matter of personal judgement and each person should decide for themselves to reject the ‘haram’.
Muslims are actually required to know what is ‘haram’, not halal.
