Halal certificates are Bid‘ah, Zulm, and Shirk

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.

Halal Funds Terrorists: ZAKAT

If You Buy Halal,  You Are Indirectly Financing Terrorism Via Zakat

It is unlikely that anyone else will inform you about this…

Islamic law requires a 2.5% tax called zakat which is imposed on income and accumulated wealth of all devout Muslims.
ie. the muslims that are involved in the halal industry- the imams, slaughtermen, workers, business & shop owners etc.

Halal certification is done on a fee for service basis, with the fees varying with the scope and scale of the services.
Certification is provided by Islamic organizations, and would not be halal if the required zakat was not paid on the fees.

What you may not know is that there are eight classes of zakat recipients, each of which gets a 1/8 share of the gross.
One of those classifications is fighters in Allah’s cause aka Mudihideen, aka terrorists.
When you purchase a product which is certified Halal, you are indirectly contributing to terrorism.

I quote from Reliance of the Traveller, the Shari’ah handbook of the majority Sunni sect of Islam.

h8.7: The Eight Categories of Recipients

It is obligatory to distribute one’s zakat among eight categories of recipients (O: meaning that zakat goes to none besides them), one-eighth of the zakat to each category. (n: In the Hanafi school, it is valid for the giver to distribute his zakat to all of the categories, some of them, or to confine himself to just one of them (al-Lubab fi sharh al-Kitab(y88), 1.155). )

h8.17: Those Fighting for Allah
The seventh category is those fighting for Allah, meaning people engaged in Islamic military operations for whom no salary has been allotted in the army roster, but who are volunteers for jihad without remuneration.
They are given enough to suffice them for the operation, even if affluent; of weapons, mounts, clothing, and expenses for the duration of the journey, round trip, and the time they spend there, even if prolonged.
Though nothing has been mentioned here of the expense involved in supporting such people’s families during this period, it seems clear that they should also be given it.

Over a billion people in the world follow the teaching of the Prophet Muhammad. His followers accept the validity of the prophethood of Muhammad and sincerely believe that his teachings are a divine message from Allah (God).

They believe that the message is embodied in the Holy Qur’an, and this Qur’an is the living word of Allah for ALL of humanity.

Islamic Charity Organizations: Alms & Terrorism

As-Sadaqât (here it means Zakât) are only for the Fuqarâ’ (poor), and Al-Masâkin (the poor) and those employed to collect (the funds); and for to attract the hearts of those who have been inclined (towards Islâm); and to free the captives; and for those in debt; and for Allâh’s Cause (i.e. for Mujâhidûn – those fighting in the holy wars), and for the wayfarer (a traveller who is cut off from everything); a duty imposed by Allâh. And Allâh is All-Knower, All-Wise. Al-Tawba 9:60

 

إِنَّمَا الصَّدَقَاتُ لِلْفُقَرَاء وَالْمَسَاكِينِ وَالْعَامِلِينَ عَلَيْهَا وَالْمُؤَلَّفَةِ قُلُوبُهُمْ وَفِي الرِّقَابِ وَالْغَارِمِينَ وَفِي سَبِيلِ اللّهِ وَابْنِ السَّبِيلِ فَرِيضَةً مِّنَ اللّهِ وَاللّهُ عَلِيمٌ حَكِيمٌ‭. سورة التوبة ٩:٦٠

http://quran.com/9

One of the five pillars of Islam is the requirement that every Muslims contribute to the Islamic charity (alms) tax or Zakat.

According to the Qur’an, the Zakat funds must be used for the following purposes.

 

  1. The Fuqara poor. They are the poor who do not beg for support.
  2. The Masakin. The destitute; They are the poor who beg for support.
  3. Amil’ Zakah.  Those who administer the collection and distribution of the Zakat funds.
  4. Mu’Allaf. Those who may be enticed to Islam as well as new converts who need financial support.
  5. Riqab.  Those in bondage; Those Muslim slaves who may have their freedom purchased.
  6. Fi sabi `Lillah. Those who are fighting in the Cause of Allah, e.g., the Mujahideen.
  7. Ibn as’Sabil. The wayfarer; Muslim travelers who need assistance while on a journey.
  8. Gharimun – ‘people burdened with debt’

One of the purposes of the Zakat tax is to support those struggles in the Cause of Allah (6.).  The Noble Qur’an states that Allah’s Cause entails supporting Mujahideen or those who are fighting in the battles and wars of Allah. So, it is no wonder that Islamic charitable organizations send funds to militant organizations who fight in the Cause of Allah. From the perspective of many non-Muslims, some of these militant organizations are terrorist organizations.

The hadith of al-Bukhari in its section on Zakat informs us that Khalid did not have to pay the Zakat because he kept his armor dedicated to the Cause of Allah.  Armor is used for battle and not for charitable purposes as normally understood by non-Muslims.

 

Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle (p.b.u.h) ordered (a person) to collect Zakat, and that person returned and told him that Ibn Jamil, Khalid bin Al-Walid, and Abbas bin ‘Abdul Muttalib had refused to give Zakat.” The Prophet said, “What made Ibn Jamll refuse to give Zakat though he was a poor man, and was made wealthy by Allah and His Apostle? But you are unfair in asking Zakat from Khalid as he is keeping his armor for Allah’s Cause (for Jihad). As for Abbas bin ‘Abdul Muttalib, he is the uncle of Allah’s Apostle (p.b.u.h) and Zakat is compulsory on him and he should pay it double.” Sahih Al-Bukhari, Obligatory Charity Tax (Zakat), Volume 2, Book 24, Number 547

 

Those Islamic Terrorist organisations fall under “Fi sabi `Lillah” or those ‘in the path of God’

Fi Sabi-Lillah
This means ‘in the path of God’ and pertains to anyone struggling for a righteous cause, including but not limited to the expenditure towards the promotion of Islam and for all charitable purposes. This also includes Jihad. Those struggling for Allah.

 

فاي سابي-لله
وهذا يعني، في سبيل الله “وتنتمي إلى أي شخص يناضل من أجل قضية الصالحين، بما في ذلك ولكن لا يقتصر على الإنفاق من أجل تعزيز الإسلام، وبالنسبة لجميع الأغراض الخيرية. وهذا يشمل أيضا الجهاد. أولئك الذين يكافحون في سبيل الله.

 

Towards the end of the same article…
In conclusion, the Qur’an indicates that a portion of the Zakat, Islamic charity, should be used for militant Islamic objectives. An article in the New York Times states,

Terrorist groups rely on contributions from wealthy religious conservatives in the Persian Gulf as well as from money diverted from the zakat — the mosque collection plate — on several continents. Money is often funneled through reputable charities into the hands of operatives. For instance, the World Trade Center bombing was financed through money coming from the Alkifah Refugee Center in Brooklyn. And the system of funneling money through charities has improved greatly since then.

Zakat – The 8 Recipients

http://www.emel.com/article?id=61&a_id=1411&fb_source=message

FURTHER PROOF that Zakat Funds Terrorism:
The 9/11 Commission found that Al Qaeda was funded “almost entirely” by zakat and sadaqa (donations beyond the 2½ zakat rate).

Quote from the 9/11 Commission Report:

Bin Laden did not fund al Qaeda through a personal fortune and a network of businesses in Sudan. Instead, al Qaeda relied primarily on a fund-raising network developed over time.
The CIA now estimates that it cost al Qaeda about $30 million per year to sustain its activities before 9/11 and that this money was raised almost entirely through donations.

FURTHER PROOF:

“Conquer the world through Halal movement”
In 2010, the mufti of Bosnia-Herzegovina Mustafa Ceric, a Muslim Brotherhood leader in Europe, has evoked this project of Islamic conquest in a speech given in Islamabad (Pakistan) at the Global Halal Congress – Reported by the Daily Mail (Islamabad) and archived by GMBDR

In her March 13 report broadcast on Dumont le midi TV show, journalist Caroline Lacroix revealed that Olymel pays thousands of dollars to the…

“Association des viandes halal that is controlled by Abou-Baker-Assedique mosque” located at 371 Jean-Talon E. in Montreal for the halal certification of its chickens.

Where does all this money collected for halal inspections, halal monitoring and halal certification fees… Where does it all go???

La question maintenant : ou va l’argent de la certification halal?

(Boycott)

2. Company/product/service becomes halal certified.
(Very serious boycott)

3. Mark is displayed on Product/service.
(Avoid at ALL Cost!)
