ALL SCIENTIFIC MEDICAL ISLAMIC EVIDENCES ARE AGAINST
ANY TYPE OF STUNNING...
ONLY THE PROPHET MUHAMMAD(pbuh) METHOD(direct method/without
any stunning) IS THE ONLY HALAL AND THE ONLY HUMANE METHOD
WHICH WILL GIVE A HEATHY TAYYIB MEAT!
- This is the Official Muslim view of the Muslims
in Britain :
The only Halal is the prophet's Muhammad way(Sallalahu
Alayhi wasallam),direct method and without the use of
any type of stunning.HALAL IS THE UNSTUNNED ONE ONLY!
This is the view of over 700 Muslim organisations and
mosques and Imams in Britain:
Muslim Council of Britain(over 400 organisations/mosques),UMO(over
Regent Park mosque,Sharia Council,Darul Uloom,,European
Council for Ifta and Reasearch,many Muftis...,Islamic
Medical Association etc...
Muslims in Britain are lucky to have a law/Exemption from
stunning,as well as the Jews,who oppose strongly ,more
than the Muslims ,all types of stunning( for Kosher meat.),and
to slaughter our Zabiha according to the clearway of our
beloved prophet Muhammad,peace be upon him..
We have now a big list of FATAWAS which prohibit completely
any type of stunning!
The more we explain to Ulamas/Imams what stunning does
to the animal/meat,the more we get Fatawas of prohibition.(EDUCATION
ON STUNNING AND ITS HARAM HARMFUL EFFECTS IS VERY MUCH
NEEDED TODAY TO ALL ULAMAS/MUFTIS EVERYWHERE AND IN MANY
Many scientific/medical researches and my medical researches
before have prooved that stunning techniques( which are
torture techniques) can causes all or some of these haram
results and problems:
-Stunning causes Death of some animals before Zabiha(Mitah)
which makes the meat HARAM.
The Government says that 1/3 of stunned chickens are dead
before you do the cut for slaughter???
Chicken are cruelly stunned in electric water bath! some
die from strangulation(Munkhanicah)
which is HARAM to do!
Meat from dead animal before Dhabh,blood , strangulation
and blow on the head (all occuring in stunning), are clearly
prohibited in the final Holy Book ALQUR'AN(chapter 5 verse
-And causes more blood inside the meat...making the meat
Haram to eat as blood(Dam) is haram to consume and a big
More blood stays inside as the heart stops or gets weak..and
also by the ruptiure of the small blood vessels inside
the meat.."SALT AND PEPPER HAEMORRHAGE"..?
(so far we have three big Haram mentioned in the Qur'an:
mitah(dead) and damm(blood) and strangulation (Munkhanicah)
.. especially with chickens...)
- Is Cruel and painful to the animal ,as prooved by EEG
medical studies,and any cruelty to any animal is forbidden
in Islam .every person who causes any pain or suffering
to an animal will be punished on the Day of Judgement,according
-So it is SINFUL too..and any one accepting/doing it will
-Makes the composition of the meat: unhealthy and not
TAYYIB,according to the medical researches due to the
disruption/disturbance of the natural safe healthy chemical
formula/ingredients of the meat!
Animals should be fed their own NATURAL DIET(Grass and
plants) ,no animal protein also no GM diet..!
Organic Natural farming for poultry and animals is a MUST
Hormones and antibiotics to be avoided too for our health
and for the health of the animals too.
-TAZKIAH is a MUST in the Qur'an in order to purify the
meat...Direct method/prophet Muhammad's way and without
any type of stunnin!
-New scientific medical researches have prooved the importance
of having a conscious hearing animal (unstunned) in order
to hear Tasmiah/Name of ALLAH, at time of Zabiha ,as it
acts as a "sedative"/TRANQUILLISER and a purifiyer
of the meat from blood and germs(healthy)!
-Is a health risk! a cause for BSE/MAD COW disease(in
beef)..this is why the US has PROHIBITED lately stunning
for the cows.Britain should follow soon..!also in stunning
more blood stays inside to be consumed which is very dangerous
-More important the prophet Muhammad(peace be upon him)
has said in a Hadith that "he will fight all those
who do not slaughter the animal/Zabiha,as he does"(without
any stunning) ?????
Who would like to be at WAR with the prophet muhammad(pbuh)?
-To use any type of stunning,is a DEVIATION from the clearly
prescribed way of doing Zabiha as the prophet did like
The prophet Muhammad was and is our MODEL and TEACHER
and he showed us how to do Zabiha and he prescribed clearly
in a Hadith how to do it?
-Least to say: in Islam we are asked,according to the
Hadith of the prophet,to avoid any thing doubtful or contraversial(Shubuha)?...so
for our sake we should avoid eating the meat of any stunned
-Keeping the Islamic identity in eating meat and in Zabiha
is a MUST in Islam..!
One can not eat the same meat coming from slaughter as
done by the non Muslims!
To stun the animal is like Zabiha of non Muslims!
-The Prophet warned us that No Du'a will be accepted from
any one who ate some HARAM meat/food!...and to watch our
big responsibility/accountability if we feed our innocent
children some haram meat or food as their bodies will
be built from the Haram meat/food!
-Finally,the Muslims will suffer a great economic loss
if they stun the animals like the non Muslims... as people
will start buying from the non Muslims whose meat also
looks cleaner and more attractive to buy!
-On top of all that,the prophetic method of Zabiha(direct
method/without any type of stunning)
is LEGAL in Britain for the Muslims to do it and is allowed
in the slaughterhouses..
This allowance was renewed by the Government in March/2005.
So why many Muslims follow the non Muslims in their wrong
and haram way(stunning), which is different from the prophet's
Muhammad way..It must be IGNORANCE or THE WORSHIPPING
OF THE POUNDS AND DOLLARS....
It is frustrating and amazing to see the Jews stick to
the direct method in Zabiha and without any type of stunning(Moses
method/Muhammad method) while many muslims go" BLIND"
and incist in following the non Muslim way(stunning) ????
No doubt they are SINFUL and will have no BARAKAH in their
THE DIRECT METHOD OF ZABIHA(without any stunning) IS THE
ONLY METHOD FOR REAL HALAL MEAT...THE ONLY HUMANE METHOD
WHICH WAS PRESCRIBED BY GOD ALMIGHTY AND IMPLEMENTED BY
ALL THE PROPHETS OF GOD:
Abraham,Moses,Jesus and Muhammad,peace be upon them...
So all Muslims,Jews and Christians should adopt it fully
to obey GOD Almighty...and for the welfare of the animal
and the health of the consumers!
