Halal and Non Halal

Discussion in 'Politics & Religion' started by wisdomtool, Feb 9, 2008.

  1. #1
    I read about an article regarding a school that had the entire canteen certified as halal. The principal also banned students from bringing in non halal food to be consumed in school. Any Islam experts can comment on this? Is it forbidden for a Muslim to eat on the same table with those consuming non halal food?

    Any particular Koran interpretation would be much appreciated.

    Which country is this in?

    Slightly off topic... I'd like to know why certain supposedly vegetarian foods are certified as halal/kosher. Personally, I refuse to anything that IS halal or kosher.

    Although i dont like posting in the P&R forum because of all the red flying around, but i think that it would be better if you would have asked this question in a more suitable place, like a religious forum where there are real muslim experts. I doubt anyone here could answer this as it is most probably only known by muslims that have done their research.
    but in my opinion, unless a muslim consumes it I doubt its forbidden.
    Again, this is just my opinion so please dont take this as an answer.

    Halal isn't just permitted foods, It's also permitted means of slaughter. Halal and kosher slaughter should be banned in any country where compassion for animals exists. it's a barbaric practice and needs to be stopped.

    The animals have their throats cut and are left to bleed to death for 2-3 minutes.

    Even though halal is commonly used to refer food diet internationally, it actually is a word that means allowed or permitted. Can be used in various areas such as behaviour, work, medicine etc. as well as food. For instance; if you make a living out of gambling, betting, stealing, anything that harms or serves in disfavor of other people(blackmail for eg.) -or yourself- that money is non-halal, or haraam, and you shall not use it for yourself or people you take care of.

    More information:
    http://www.isaiowa.org/content.asp?ID=1677

    As for the food, it is not actually hard to design a halal food menu. You don't include pig or related meat, animal corpse(in other words; animal that was already dead when slaughtered), alcohol drinks of any kind, and a couple of other things you already wouldn't possibly have in a regular menu -- unless you have a weirdo diet.

    Sorry for another question, I heard one Muslim trying to give a tough question to his preacher, he was asking, if frogs can be eaten by Muslims, the preacher's answer was quite smart, why eat frogs when there are other food to eat. Just curious what is issue with regards to frogs?

    Frankly, i was never in a position to eat a frog, and hopefully never will(lol) unless i'm on a military mission in a jungle (lol2), so i didn't know, though the preacher was pretty wise with the answer. But.. frogs are forbidden to kill according to a hadith so i suppose it'd be haraam. It has also been included to this list i found.

    But sheep is halal, so sheeple.. beware! :p

    I actually know very little about this topic myself. I need to read more... :D

    I've heard, any animal or bird which hunts other creatures and has claws and canine teeth, like a tiger, or an eagle, are forbidden.

    This, IMO, is the most beautiful thing about life. You can never learn it all, and there is always something new to absorb.
