  • Halal Food and IFI Certification

    Our local Subway is advertised as Halaal and is certified by Islamic Foundation of Ireland (IFI). This is the first time I came across IFI so I checked out their website.

    Here's their checklist for Halaal slaughter:

    Originally posted by IFI
    1. The animal to be slaughtered must be from the categories that are permitted for Muslims to eat.

    2. The animal must be alive at the time of slaughter.

    3. No electric shock, bullet or any other means should be used before slaughtering. Using any such method may lead to the death of the animal before it is cut. Islam prohibits Muslims from eating any meat coming from an animal that is dead before slaughter. Muslims are also advised to avoid eating anything doubtful.

    4. The animal must be slaughtered by the use of a sharp knife. The knife must not kill due to its weight. If it kills due to the impact the meat may not be permissible.

    5. The windpipe (throat), food-tract (oesophagus) and the two jugular veins must be cut.

    6. The slaughtering must be done in one stroke without lifting the knife. The knife should not be placed and lifted when slaughtering the animal.

    7. Slaughtering must be done by a sane adult Muslim. Animals slaughtered by apostates, idol worshippers, atheists etc. are not permissible. Animals slaughtered (not stunned prior to slaughter) by the People of the Book (Jews and Christians.)

    8. The name of Allah must be invoked (mentioned) at the time of slaughtering by saying: Bismillah; wa Allahu Akbar. (In the Name of Allah; Allah is the Greatest.)

    9. If at the time of slaughtering the name of anyone else other than Allah is invoked (i.e. animal sacrificed for him/her), then the meat becomes Haram "unlawful."

    10. If a Muslim forgets to invoke the name of Allah at the time of slaughtering, the meat will remain Halal. However, if he intentionally does not invoke the name of Allah, the meat becomes Haram.

    11. The head of the animal must not be cut off during slaughtering but later after the animal is completely dead, even the knife should not go deep into the spinal cord.

    12. Skinning or cutting any part of the animal is not allowed before the animal is completely dead.

    13. Slaughtering must be made in the neck from the front (chest) to the back.

    14. The slaughtering must be done manually not by a machine, as one of the conditions is the intention, which is not found in a machine.

    15. The slaughtering should not be done on a production line where pigs are slaughtered. Any instrument used for slaughtering pigs should not be used in the Halal slaughtering.
    Conditions and method for Halal slaughter (continued)

    It seems they are like HMC and against stunning, unlike HFA.

    Anyone here from Ireland who knows IFI?

    sounds legit

    He it is Who sends blessings on you, as do His angels, that He may bring you out from the depths of Darkness into Light: and He is Full of Mercy to the Believers. [Quran {33:43}]
