Hello.                                                             Please help am unsure?

Am concerned with the legitimacy of halal certification board, as I know many products should not be labeled?                               There are Haram items labeled? For instance beer, Easter eggs, hot cross buns for example.

Also am very confused as Non Consumable items are labeled halal?                               Like cleaning products & pet food? Does this mean it is ok to eat now?

Also I was worried about other religious people to, as they are not allowed to eat halal products?

As I understand, isn’t roughly 80% of Australian products halal? That would make finding non halal products extremely hard to find for them? Wouldn’t it?

Isn’t there only about 2.5% Muslims in the whole country? Isn’t that not caring for the mass majority of population, who live here? I read you are concerned for all of Australia right?

Is it possible to cater to just the 2.5% Muslims & leave everyone else alone?

Seeing roughly 97% of Australians DON’T need or require It?

Plus other religions,  wouldn’t be in “breach of their” beliefs.

It would be fantastic if a halal selection was made available for Muslims, in an exclusive area for them!

Just like there is vegetarian sections, throughout the supermarkets.

So many people would not oppose that & be very accepting of that outcome.

Thank you for your help so I can understand?

I hope that my suggestions will be a much more positive change, for everyone concerned.

EXTRACTS FROM THE QUR’AN
Answer:
Eating haraam food
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

May Allah Subhanah reward you with the best of this world and the Hereafter for your kind comments of encouragement for our humble efforts in the propagation of the Truth. If our humble and modest efforts have helped even one brother or sister get closer to Allah and His Deen of Truth, then we would consider ourselves indeed fortunate to have been given this opportunity by the Lord Most Merciful to serve in His Cause.We hope, beg, and pray the Merciful Lord accepts our humble and weak efforts, forgives us our shortcomings, and saves you, us, and all the believers from the torment of the Hell Fire. Ameen.
Your Question: Eating no-halal meat has been justified by some scholars.

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verses 3-5:
3 Forbidden to you (for food) are: dead meat, blood, the flesh of swine, and that on which hath been invoked the name of other than Allah, that which hath been killed by strangling, or by a violent blow, or by a headlong fall, or by being gored to death; that which hath been (partly) eaten by a wild animal; unless ye are able to slaughter it (in due form); that which is sacrificed on stone (altars); (forbidden) also is the division (of meat) by raffling with arrows: that is impiety. This day have those who reject faith given up all hope of your religion: yet fear them not but fear Me. This day have I perfected your religion for you completed my favor upon you and have chosen for you Islam as your religion. But if any forced by hunger with no inclination to transgression Allah is indeed Oft-Forgiving Most Merciful.
4 They ask thee what is lawful to them (as food): say: Lawful unto you are (all) things good and pure: and what ye have taught your trained hunting animals (to catch) in the manner directed to you by Allah; eat what they catch for you but pronounce the name of Allah over it: and fear Allah; for Allah is swift in taking account.

5 This day are (all) things good and pure made lawful unto you. The food of the People of the Book is lawful unto you, and yours is lawful unto them.
Dear and beloved brother in Islam, unless and until one is forced by absolute hunger and consumes of the listed ‘haraam’ or prohibited food only as much and so as to save his life…..the foods which are prohibited by Allah and His Messenger (saws) for the believers will remain prohibited!
Believe and know with absolute conviction brother that no scholar, no jurist, no one, and we reiterate, absolutely no one in creation has the authority to declare lawful what Allah and His Messenger (saws) have declared unlawful!

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 16 Surah Nahl verses 116-117:
116 But say not for any false thing that your tongues may put forth “This is lawful and this is forbidden” so as to ascribe false things to Allah. For those who ascribe false things to Allah will never prosper.

117 (In such falsehood) is but a paltry profit; but they will have a most Grievous Penalty.
Dear and beloved brother, only and only Allah and His Messenger (saws) have the right to declare what is lawful and what is unlawful; and absolutely no one in creation has been give the authority to supercede the Decisions and Commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws)!
Allah is our witness brother, the supposed scholar who (Allah forbid) declares something lawful which Allah and His Messenger (saws) have Declared as unlawful, and those who obey or follow their opinion and consume the unlawful; both will share their appropriate burden of the sin for indulging in the ‘haraam’.

Your Question: Chapter 5, Verse 5 tells us we can eat the meat of the People of the Book. Are there any extra conditions that apply to that?
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verse 5 (part):5 This day are (all) things good and pure made lawful unto you. The food of the People of the Book is lawful unto you, and yours is lawful unto them.
If the below five conditions are met, the food served by the People of the Book will be termed halaal for the believers.

1. The animal itself should be halaal in Shariah. (Even if a muslim (Allah forbid) were to slaughter swine, it will not make it halaal!!).

2. The one who slaughters the animal must either be a Muslim, or a Jew or a Christian. If any other person slaughters the animal, it will not be considered halaal.

Al-Qur’an on Eating HALAL
O you People! Eat of what is on earth, Halal and pure, and do not follow the footsteps of the Satan; Indeed for he is to you an open enemy (2:168)

O you who believe! Eat of the good things that We have provided for you and be grateful to Allah, if it is Him that you worship (2:172)

Forbidden to you are Maytatah (carrion or dead animal, animal not slaughtered with Tasmiyah i.e. reciting ‘Bismillahi Allahu Akbar’), flowing blood, the flesh of swine, and that slaughter on which was invoked name other than Allah, as well as the (animal) killed by strangulation or beaten to death with violent blow or falling (from a height) to its death or gored to death (through fighting) or by falling to a predator (and about to be consumed — unless you are able to slaughter before it dies)…. (5:3) [see also (16:115)]

Note: In the above ayah, the animal / bird not slaughtered with Tasmiyah are considered dead animal (Maytah) and are unlawful (haram) to eat, and it is mentioned before the flesh of swine to be unlawful (haram); they are both unlawful (haram) for consumption.

Eat of that over which the name of Allah (swt) has been pronounced (while slaughtering that animal/bird), if you are believers in His revelations (6:118)

And why should you not eat of that (meat) on which Allah’s Name has been pronounced (at the time of slaughter), while He has explained to you in detail what is forbidden to you, except under extreme necessity? (6:119)

Eat not (O believers) of that meat on which Allah’s Name has not been pronounced (at the time of slaughtering) for sure it is disobedience of Allah (a sinful conduct). And certainly, the Shayaatin (devils) do inspire their friends (from mankind) to dispute with you, and if you obey them [making al-Maytatah legal to eat (Maytatah – a dead animal or animal / bird slaughtered without taking the name of Allah during slaughter)], then you would indeed be a polytheists (i.e. doing shirk, ascribing partners to Allah) (6:121)

And such animals upon which they mention not the Name of Allah (during slaughter) only to fabricate a lie against him (6:138)

So eat of the lawful (Halal) and good food (Pure wholesome, halal cattle slaughtered according to Islamic method) which Allah has provided for you. And be grateful for the Graces of Allah, if it is He whom you worship (16:114)

And say not concerning that which your tongue says falsely: “This is Halal and this is Haram,” so as to invent lies against Allah. Verily, those who invent lies against Allah will never prosper…A passing brief enjoyment (will be theirs), but they will have a painful torment (16:116-117)

For every nation We have appointed religious ceremonies so that they may mention the Name of Allah (swt) upon the animals that He has given them for food (22:34)

So mention the Name of Allah (swt) upon them (sheep, goat, cows, oxen, camels etc) as they line up (for sacrifice) (22:36)
