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.


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.


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.


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 .

Halal certificate as Bid‘ah, Zulm, and Shirk(ハラール証明はビドア[異端]、不正、多神崇拝である)

Read QUR’AN 6:71

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!

… Quote:

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.”


We are Boycotting anything halal certified.

AFIC – The Australian Federation of Islamic Councils Inc.

Stop paying a fee for Halal food certification to the Islamic Council.

A number of foods we purchase on supermarket shelves are certified as Halal.

For example the small Halal certification symbol appears on Kraft Vegemite, some Cadbury products, Tasel Tasmanian salmon, some Leggo food products, some San Remo pasta products and many more.

Even more products are certified Halal but do not show the symbol on the label.

To be certified Halal a fee must be paid to AFIC –The Australian Federation of Islamic Councils- or an affiliated state council.

Clearly many Non-Muslim shoppers are unwittingly buying unlabelled halal products and many consumers are unwittingly eating halal products in food outlets and institutions.

Halal is being introduced into our food chain by stealth and many non-food products are also halal certified now, some of which include halal bi-products in the production process.

To be certified Halal a fee must be paid to AFIC –The Australian Federation of Islamic Councils- or an affiliated state council.



AFIC - The Australian Federation of Islamic Councils Inc.

AFIC – The Australian Federation of Islamic Councils Inc.

Who are AFIC and what happens to the certification fee you contribute towards when you buy a certified product?

The AFIC is the only single Islamic Halal Certifier that operates Nationally (all the States and Territories of Australia) for Halal Certification.
According to their website, the main role of AFIC is to represent Islam and Muslims of Australia as one “Ummah” to the government and other bodies nationally and internationally.
AFIC coordinates and provides resources for activities of its State Islamic Councils and member Islamic societies.
The AFIC has an embracing mission statement: but its actions are not totally consistent with that statement.

For example, the appointment by the AFIC of the notorious Taj El-Din Hilaly as Grand Mufti of Australia, was in conflict with the AFIC’s stated mission.
Taj El-Din Hilaly was a convicted criminal serving time in jail. His sermons were often anti-Australian (in direct contradiction of the AFIC’s mission statement) and his views on Australian women (“cat’s meat”) are well known.  Hilaly never condemned the terrorist attacks on the USA on 11 September 2001. In fact, he is reported as supporting that offence by saying it was an act of god. The AFIC did not condemn him for that statement. Furthermore, Hilaly appeared to support Hezbollah, classified by the Australian Government as a terrorist organization – does the AFIC send its “international resources” to Hezbollah?

The Australian Newspaper reports that the Minister for education in NSW has asked the NSW police and ASIC to investigate where millions and millions of tax-payers dollars have gone. The money was given to Muslim schools managed by you guessed it AFIC. The millions of government dollars funnelled out of the schools into AFIC’s coffers has not yet been explained.

Time may tell, if it is not hushed up, whether the money was just badly accounted for, or was used corruptly to pay people, or whether some was syphoned off to give to Muslim organisations like Hezbollah.

I wonder if we will ever hear.

In the meantime do not give money to AFIC by purchasing Halal certified products.

To be certified Halal a fee must be paid to AFIC –The Australian Federation of Islamic Councils- or an affiliated state council.




Call on the Government to Investigate Halal ‘Charities’

We Call on the Government to Investigate the HMC & other Muslim Halal ‘Charities’

We have evidence that Halal businesses have been undercutting our Farmers, Slaughterhouses, Cutting Plants and Farming Businesses, because they have been allowed to claim CHARITY STATUS and thereby get EXEMPTION FROM TAX & VAT on the running costs of their businesses. More shocking details of this and other types of BUSINESS IRREGULARITIES can be clearly seen on the Halal Monitoring Services website where the following questions were asked by brother Umar of Coventry from Jamia Darul Uloom Karachi…

 Question 4 Some Halal meat supplying companies operating in the Halal meat industry in the UK abuse the law and voluntarily liquidate their companies after operating for some time, and by doing so free themselves of their accumulated debt, and then without paying their govt. taxes and debts owed to the farmers they open another company under another name and start operating again. In this way they undercut other law abiding companies engaged in providing Halal meat. These people are a cause of disrepute to the whole Halal meat industry, and they are one of the main reasons why many shortcuts and bad practices aimed at cost cutting have been introduced into the industry. Would Muslim certification bodies be justified denying certification to these companies? Halal Monitoring Services – Mufti Taki Usmani Fatwa


Halal Monitoring Committee – LIQUIDATION



Background… HALAL BUSINESSES GOING BANKRUPT? Could this be because Muslim Businessmen have had their Tax & VAT Avoidance Charity Status Scam stopped??? HALAL Companies have been operating a TAX AVOIDANCE SCAM by claiming Charity status to get out of paying the Tax & VAT that our own Farmers and Producers have to pay on their business running costs… This is how HALAL MEAT has been able to undercut traditional meat prices over the past decade… by20%+ PROOF:  Halal businesses get EXEMPTION FROM TAX & CHARITY STATUS!!! I found this document – at last the HMRC has put their foot down in UK on one scam! 24th October 2011 – HMC ACQUIRES VAT REGISTRATION Over the past two years, the National Executive Committee initiated a review of the governance and structure of the organisation. This led to the successful registration with the Charity Commission in May 2009 as since our inception, we have remained a not for profit organisation. Earlier this year, we started a dialogue with HMRC regarding our VAT status. As a faith based voluntary organisation, our understanding was HMC is exempt from VAT similar to other charitable organisations. However, after a series of meetings, HMRC has advised we should become VAT registered based on the nature of services we provide. We have today communicated the impact of this to certified plants and outlets. Reflecting on the change, Chairman of HMC, Shaykh Yunus Dudhwala said: “We appreciate this change will impact on our stakeholders but are confident our partners will appreciate the context of this change and the mandatory nature of the change. More over, we are working closely with HMRC to ensure that whilst we fulfil our legal obligations, the impact of the changes is minimal. For this reason, the change in charges will only apply to plants, and this will have minimal impact as VAT registered companies are able to reclaim the VAT. It is important for all our partners to support us on our journey to ensure the provision of genuine Halal.” http://www.halalmc.net/news_events/news.html Scroll Down Page To See 7th article entitled… 24th October 2011 – HMC ACQUIRES VAT REGISTRATION   ILLEGAL BUSINESS PRACTICE! HMC LIQUIDATION (UK) UK: Halal Monitoring Committee Limited goes into liquidation, but is now trading as HMC (UK) as it continues its work to supply Genuine Halal The HMC – is a so-called ‘respectable’ Halal Certification Board… On the background of the story that many muslim businesses are illegally claiming CHARITY STATUS to get out of paying TAX &  VAT,  we have already seen two more halal abattoirs close in Wales this month… Now the HMC is trying to wriggle out of paying its debts by going into Liquidation & opening for business in a new name – HMC (UK) Ltd.! QUOTE:  Halal Monitoring Committee Limited is in the process of being dissolved allowing them to be debt free and to continue their work they have set up as HMC (UK)!

QUESTION:  Just wondering how many illegal  Halal Business Scams are going on in other countries???

~ AND the HMC is not an isolated case… it happened in CANADA too! The Canada Revenue Agency revoked IRFAN-Canada’s charity status in April 2011 after having concluded that it financed the terrorist organization Hamas. This Video explains that the meat you eat has been Halal-slaughtered AND how your money is not only paying for halal-slaughtered meat, but how your money is being sent to various terrorist groups. Point de Bascule: Halal slaughter, Hamas monetary gain The certification agency is controlled by the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC), the main Muslim Brotherhood organization in Canada. MAC owns the building where the certification agency and the cultural centre are based and the administrators of the certification agency are former MAC directors or they have publicly endorsed MAC’s positions in the past. MAC’s halal program is part of a global Muslim Brotherhood’s strategy. SEE  THIS  VIDEO…


QUESTION – Why are we seeing such a rise in Halal Foods in Non-Islamic Countries???


In 2010 in Islamabad, a leader of the Islamist organization, the mufti of Bosnia, Mustafa Ceric, urged Muslims…

“to conquer the world through Halal movement.”

Country: United Kingdom, Europe

A leading European Muslim cleric has urged the international Muslim community to conquer the world through the halal movement. He is reported to have said that the halal movement can enable Muslims to rule the global economy because its food and other services are the basic needs of every human being. He claimed halal means “pure and hygienic”, and that the non-Muslim world has no hesitation in accepting it. His comments follow Operation Nehemiah’s report on a video produced by the World HalalForum, which uses slick advertising and exploits commercial gain in a bid to sell halal as a global brand. It is becoming apparent that halal is being used as an instrument of Islamic mission (dawa),bringing the oblivious non-Muslim world increasingly under the authority of sharia law.

QUESTION:  Just wondering how many illegal  Halal Business Scams are going on in other countries???


Back to our problems in the UK, especially the Business irregularities outlined above…

QUESTION:  In these times of austerity, WHY are we allowing such disrespectful flagrant cases of wrongdoing in any British Charities or Businesses?

Clearly this malpractice is putting our own hard-working Farmers livelihood in jeopardy? I have asked my local Farmers & Butchers  and others in the Food Industry that I have met on-line…

QUESTION:  WHY have you not spoken out about this ‘halal’ outrage long ago???

The answer in all cases was – “We are afraid of being labelled a ‘Racist’!” Clearly speaking out against Islam is not a racist issue and speaking out against Muslim’s who have no respect for the Law or Traditions of our country is not being racist either… Muslims are a multi-racial group of people from diverse cultural backgrounds, ethnicities and nationalities… You cannot be a Racist for opposing them.

We Must Call on the Government to Investigate the HMC & other Halal ‘Charities’ & ALL Business Irregularities…

Let’s Clean Up Britain!

BOYCOTT HALAL Products & Services!
