Halal Certificates are Bid‘ah, Zulm, and Shirk – worse than sins!

Halal certificates are Bid‘ah, Zulm, and Shirk
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيمييم


1. HALAL CERTIFICATES ARE BID’AH – a new & reproachable innovation – Worse than sins!
2. IMPOSING HALAL CERTIFICATES ON PEOPLE IS ZULM (injustice)
3. HALAL AUTHORITIES HAVE SEIZED POWER THAT BELONGS TO ALLAH ALONE WHICH IS SHIRK (polytheism)
CONCLUSION – What should devout Muslims do?

1. HALAL CERTIFICATES ARE BID’AH – a new & reproachable innovation – Worse than sins!


(1) Halal certificate is nothing, but an imitation of Kosher certificate
(2) In Islam there is no priesthood or religious institution to “officially” authorise the doctrine
(3) There is no mandate in the Qur’an for issuing Halal certificates, for exports, or any other purpose and issuing Halal certificates was never included in the Ahkam Sultaniyyah.
(4) No Government is obliged to issue or condone the issue of Halal Certificates… and any Government that has legitimated Halal Certificates, has no Islamic political authority at all.

2. IMPOSING HALAL CERTIFICATES ON PEOPLE IS ZULM (injustice),

especially in case of being accompanied with demanding money for issuing it and preventing free trade between people by banning them from being able to declare their own things as Halal.
(1) Every Muslim can sell his own properties without need of getting permission from any person or organisation as far as it is lawful. So preventing such sales or imposing permission is a Zulm, injustice.
(2) As for the slaughtered meat, only its slaughterer is qualified to say whether it is properly slaughtered or not, none else, on the condition that he has the knowledge of Islamic rules of slaughter.
(3) Unless one is with the slaughterer, observing how to slaughter throughout the whole process in all the cases, his certificate can not accepted as the Islamic lawful testimony. As the late Shaikh Ibn Uthaimin said.
(4) It is impossible to certify that meat is Halal, because the conditions of the Halal of the meat are innumerable, not limited to the way of slaughter but how to get the animal, how to get the money by which he bought the animal, whether the slaughter is a true Muslim and so on. There are too many variables. The only thing we can do is to judge it as Haram in case of finding the violation of any of them. As the late Shaikh Ibn Uthaimin said.
(5) Fact: an owner of Muslim restaurant imported chicken marked Halal of Sadia & made Gyoza (Chinese dumplings) intending to sell them with her own made Halal mark; but she was stopped & told that she was not authorised to stamp a Halal mark on her own Gyoza. Instead she should buy a Halal certificate by the authorised institution. This case clearly shows how Halal certificates are a violation of Islamic freedom of trade, thus Zulm.

3. HALAL AUTHORITIES HAVE SEIZED POWER THAT BELONGS TO ALLAH ALONE WHICH IS SHIRK (polytheism)


No one or no institution can authorise things as Halal officially to impose their judgement upon Muslims. These self-appointed ‘Halal Authorities’ are telling people what is halal and thereby violating the people’s right before Allah to decide for themselves – so these Halal Heads are usurping the prerogative of Allah, the Sole Legislator which is Shirk (polytheism)
Halal is what Allah makes it Halal in Qur`an, i.e., it is the prerogative of Allah to decide what is Halal.

Allah only names some general categories as Halal and trusts people to decide by themselves whether individual concrete things which they deal with are Halal or not. Thus declaring Halal on the individual things of the people, not general categories, is not only the violation on the right of the people but also the usurpation of the prerogative of Allah, the Sole Legislator, i.e., Shirk (polytheism).
(1) No one or no institution can authorise things as Halal officially to impose their judgement upon Muslims. Neither should any anti-Islamic organisation be trusted to issue Halal certificates.
(2) To entrust the state or its subdivision to decide Halal and Haram and impose its decision officially is nothing but idolatry. Only natural person can submit to Allah according to Shari‘ah and decide for themselves what is halal or haram.
(3) Shari‘ah prescribes the rules which is related only to the men of authority, Uliy Al-Amr, Ahkam Sultaniyyah, as collective responsibility, Fardh Kifayah, as it prescribes rules for ordinary men as individual responsibility, Fardh ‘Ain. We can entrust only Ahkam Sultaniyyah to the rulers to carry out them for us with supervising them in their exclusions, but the rest of the Shari‘ah is what we must undertake by ourselves.
(4) Issuing Halal certification is not under the category of Ahkam Sultaniyyah which is a job of the Uliy Al-Amr as the establishing Islamic Bank is not under the category of Ahkam Sultaniyyah which is a job of the Uliy Al-Amr. Concerning the slaughtered meet, the Prophetic Sunnah clarifies that we should not inspect how it was gained, so we had better to follow the Prophetic Sunnah. As the late Shaikh Uthaimin said.

NOT ONE SINGLE VERSE OR HADITH CALLS TO INVOKING ANY BEING EXCEPT ALLAH

CONCLUSION – What should devout Muslims do?

1. Muslims should struggle to prevent the Bid‘ah, Zulm and Shirk of Halal Certificate.
2. Mosques should provide the Muslims with the true knowledge of Halal and Haram of the food with difference of opinion of the reliable scholars, which includes rules concerning the food which was brought by unknown way.
3. All those who are provided with such knowledge are qualified to judge what they slaughter by themselves as properly slaughtered and allowed to eat for themselves and as well as for others and say that he slaughtered properly. But whether it is Halal or not can not be judged because other elements such as lawfulness of the gain of the animal and the money besides slaughter are also to be taken into consideration for Halal judgment.
4. As for the food, we had better not to inspect at all with trusting Muslim society by following the Prophetic Sunnah, in Islamic standpoint of view.
5. If the certificate is issued, it should show only the ingredients without using term Halal as any other certificates issued for commercial, sanitary and medical purpose.
6. If the certificate is to be issued in Islamic point of view, it should be a Haram certificate, on the condition that the criteria of Haram should be mentioned in detail enumerating all the opinions of Islamic law schools as well as it should be clearly mentioned that it is not official, not binding on any Muslim .

Read QUR’AN 6:71

SAHIH INTERNATIONAL
Say, “Shall we invoke instead of Allah that which neither benefits us nor harms us and be turned back on our heels after Allah has guided us? [We would then be] like one whom the devils enticed [to wander] upon the earth confused, [while] he has companions inviting him to guidance, [calling], ‘Come to us.’ ” Say, “Indeed, the guidance of Allah is the [only] guidance; and we have been commanded to submit to the Lord of the worlds.

Quran 6 verse 71

Read QUR’AN 6:119 – about Food
See this website where there are over 35 Generally Accepted Translations of the Meaning of Qur’an 6:119
QUR’AN 6:119 – about Food
For example: Quote…

And why should you not eat of that over which God’s name has been pronounced, seeing that He has so clearly spelled out to you what He has forbidden you [to eat] unless you are compelled [to do so]? But, behold, [it is precisely in such matters that] many people lead others astray by their own errant views, without [having any real] knowledge. Verily, thy Sustainer is fully aware of those who transgress the bounds of what is right.

HALAL CERTIFICATES ARE BID’AH – a new innovation – Worse than sins!
There is still no agreed ‘authentic’ halal standard globally – There are many Islamic sects and there is no agreement between them all about what the halal standard should be!
So it is not surprising that out of 57 OIC member countries, less than five have Halal Certification Authorities according to the IHI!

The Concept of Bid’ah in Islam in the Light of the Qur’an and Sunnah

“Bid’ah” is Haram and considered as heresy, it is an innovation in Islam, it is the invention, creation or addition of any religious matter which was not (originally) found in Islam. Therefore, Islam warns against it and invalidates any religious deed which does not originate from the Quran and the Sunnah. Muhammad says in this respect:
“He who innovates something that is not in agreement with our matter (religion), will have it rejected.”

SO… MUSLIMS BETTER REJECT HALAL CERTIFICATES TOO!

We are Boycotting anything halal certified.

EU ALERT: Horse & Pig Burgers raise fears for halal products across Europe

 

Horse meat in burgers ‘could be health risk’

Beefburgers containing horse meat could have been made from “diseased or injured animals” and be unsafe to eat, environmental health experts say.

Muslim websites are expressing fears of a HALAL Clampdown in Europe after PIG & HORSE MEAT is discovered in Beefburgers across the UK and Ireland.

The BeHalal website point out…

“As well as detecting the presence of horse and pig DNA in some burgers, it also tested 31 beef meal products such as cottage pie, beef curry pie and lasagne. Some 21 were found to have pig DNA but no traces of horse DNA were found. Traces of horse DNA were detected in batches of raw ingredients, including some from the Netherlands and Spain. Our industry sources have advised us that ABP, which owns two of the businesses named by the FSAI, Silvercrest Foods and Dalepak Hambleton and is one of the leading beef producers and exporters in Europe. And Liffey Meats Ltd who own the halal world cuisine trademark. Both companies produce halal product lines at the same sites. Often companies producing meat products also pack for other brands and however, it is not clear at this stage if halal lines are affected or how extensive this problem may be for the halal industry. This is not the first time the halal industry maybe affected and continues to face fraud… This calls for better self-regulation by halal certification organisations and importantly for them to have competent staff, effective systems and checks to protect against an industry fraught by higher levels of fraud to address this issue.”

LIFFEY halal meat is NAMED in this next article as being among the MEAT WITHDRAWN from Supermarkets across the UK!
The products were produced by three processing plants, Liffey Meats and Silvercrest Foods in Ireland and Dalepak Hambleton in the UK, and were on sale in Tesco, Dunnes Stores, Lidl, Aldi and Iceland.
In one sample from Tesco, the level of DNA indicated that horse meat accounted for approximately 29 per cent relative to the beef content!

Horse meat in burgers ‘could be health risk’
Beefburgers containing horse meat could have been made from “diseased or injured The meat posed a health risk because it had not come from identified sources, they warned.
“There is no information on how the entitled  horse meat came to be in the burgers and so there is no way of telling whether the meat is safe to eat. It could be from diseased or injured animals, for example,” said John Sleith, the head of the Society of Chief Officers of Environmental Health in Scotland. animals” and be unsafe to eat, environmental health experts say.

Following the ‘shock discovery’ of horse meat in burgers, the Food Standards Agency has issued an assurance that the burgers ARE safe to eat.
How can they say that?
Considering that no-one knew that the horse meat was in the burgers, there is no way those horses’ passports can have been checked to ensure they were in fact destined for the food chain!
Horse Passports have 2 ‘declarations’ in them: one stating they are NOT intended for slaughter for human consumption, and one stating they ARE intended for slaughter for human consumption.
If the first Declaration is signed by the owner, the horse may be given any amount and types of drugs and medication prohibited for use in animals destined for the human food chain, such as certain anti-biotics, anti-histamines and steroidal drugs. Also, horses should not enter the human food chain within 28 days of being treated for internal parasites.
Without knowing the status of these horses’ passports, I just don’t see how anyone can issue any assurances that that horse meat is indeed safe to eat…
BOYCOTT HALAL! You know it makes sense!
