ISLAMIC ETHICS IN HALAL MEAT BUSINESS MARKETING AND IN SELLING OR PROVIDING HALAL MEAT
(HALAL CODE OF PRACTICE)
According to the Islamic teachings and to the Islamic Ethics in selling in business and marketing:
THESE ARE PROPOSED ISLAMIC ETHICAL REQUIREMENTS FOR SELLING HALAL MEAT:
-Honesty and truth fullness in the meat you sell
-Inform the consumer of any defect or damage or weakness in the meat on sale
-Honest explanation how the animal was slaughtered
? Stunning…?Mechanical slaughter , animal welfare at DHABH , passport for each animal!
Each animal slaughtered for halal should be verified and labelled when is not stunned and with no mechanical slaughter as HMC do!
ALL MUSLIM UMMAH LIKE THE HALAL MEAT COMING FROM TAZKIAH SHAREYAH ONLY which is broken in most halal meat companies and shops today?
In the west we have one good thing :
Unfortunately Muslim consumers do not use this right in buying halal meat or in buying any other goods.
- Also to inform the consumers about the proven medical hazards and diseases resulting from meat consumption
- And to remind every consumer :it is unhealthy and against SUNNAH to be addicted to meat !
-Clear sure medical certificate: the animal/s was healthy before slaughter
-Evidence of TAZKIAH SHAREYAH certificate (without stunning) done by a Muslim should be available to the consumers
-Evidence the meat is Tayyib(natural pure) coming from organic animals ,grown naturally.
-Evidence and certificate on the halal feeding of the animals
-Evidence the meat is surely not contaminated by porcine ingredients
-Evidence the meat is not mixed with non halal meat
-Evidence that all HYGIENIC procedures were used from moment of animal slaughter till the time meat is sold or fed
-And to make sure that Extreme hygiene procedures were taken in the abattoir, the halal shops and the halal restaurants(many unfortunately , are filthy unclean with poor hygiene and can give us food poisoning)
-To make sure the meat is PURE not smelly( or out of date) or colored or have added chemicals like the dangerous nitrites which can give us cancers?
-Right to return the meat if there is any suspicion or in case any of the above requirements is missing
-Every consumer has the full right to see and check all documents on animal slaughter in the company(HCB)
-A third Islamic professional body to certify the TRUE HALAL TAYYIB HYGIENIC HEALTHY meat
-TRUE HALAL MEAT should be bought only from practicing educated Muslims and not from non Muslims?
as almost most HCBs are self certified and are not checked and investigated or licensed by a third independent Islamic professional body
-Any one who sell meat and did break these rules
or some of it should be referred to:
- The local Islamic Sharia Council/Court
- The Food authority of the government like the Food Standards Agency in the UK who deals with meat and food according to the MISDESCRIPTION of the FOOD ACT?
FOR PROPER PUNISHMENT !
- Big Publicity :
ALL MUSLIMS should be informed about any HCB/shop/restaurant who broke the above Islamic medical ETHICAL LEGAL RULES in all Muslim media and in mosques !
TO BE BLACKLISTED !
-Muslim consumers should be educated about their rights to complain/speak up/threaten or boycott / or make a Petition regarding:
the companies/the halal shops/the restaurants…who broke all the Islamic legal rules and the many hygienic procedures or CHEATED in any way
Important to organise Education and training programme to all stakeholders who are involved with halal meat:
The Halal companies ,the slaughter men, the staff in the halal shops, the staff in the halal restaurants…
(the Jews are good in that)
–It will help also to establish TEL HELP LINE for the Muslim consumers in order to contact and report any one who broke any of the above rules
THE TASK IS HUGE AND IT LOOKS THAT IT NEEDS PROPER ISLAMIC GOVERNMENT IN ORDER TO IMPLEMENT ALL THESE ISLAMIC ETHICS EASILY IN THE HALAL MEAT BUSINESS?
