    Icon14 Would you like some Mcdonalds ?

    why as it become so normal for some of our Muslim brothers and sisters to just go in a fast food restaurant and eat food that is not halal ? and worst of all feeding it to their children. Developing their test for what is clearly haram. Is it because we are forgetting to remember Allah swt during our daily lives or we just don't care anymore ??

    I didn't knew Muslims go to McD's and eat haram food.
    Why would you do that when there are so many halal restaurants?
    If not, then just eat veggie sandwich.
    Call onto Allah, such that you are certain that He, al-Mujib wal-Kareem, will answer your call before you even lower your hands.

    subhanallah

    even the fish?

    i guess it should not come as a surprise, they have haram food all around, and it matters not to them about the mixing of what we consider haram with the halal, so why should we be surprised?

    i think a good perspective we should have is that haram meat is like feces, would you eat a halal meal at a place that kept your halal food next to feces?
    if we look at it like that, it will help us keep a distance from these places

    comfort and convenience comes at a cost, maybe a cost we should not be willing to pay

    There is a BIG risk of cross contamination in mcdonalds and the fish/chips/veg or whatever are rarely left halaal! so i really advise it to be avoided

    Re: Would you like some Mcdonalds ?

    There are some maccas stores that are halal in my area

    I used to like the ice cream until i found out it had gelatine i think, and then never ate one again.

    My sister is best friends with a muslim and her friend still eats the chicken burgers in Macca's stores... I am not sure if she knows it is halal or not ... then again she is not very practising, Insha'Allah Allah SWT will guide her to the straight path, Ameen.

    The Prophet (saw) said, Verily, the knots of Islam will be undone one by one. Whenever one knot is lost, then the people grabbed onto the one which came after it. The first of these knots will be ruling and the last will be the salah.[1]

    The author of Sitoon as-Sultaniyah says about this Hadith: “It was the Prophet who tied together the knots of Islam, including the uppermost knot of ruling after he established the Islamic state…As mentioned by Imam Mawardi the leadership has been proscribed as the succession of the Prophet in protecting the deen and governing the societal affairs. In this respect – Imam Baidawi mentioned that the Imama/Khalifah is the succession from the Prophet in the establishment of the laws of the Shari’ah. So without the Imam the laws lie unapplied and the territory is not protected effectively. The hadith indicates that it is the uppermost knot that keeps the subsequent knots safe from being untied. This is since it is the ruler that is responsible to apply Islam in its entirety, to implement the limits proscribed by Allah and to protect the society. Imam Ahmed mentioned without an Imam (for the Muslims as their leader) there would be fitna, and the destruction of the symbols of Islam ending with the Prayer is a great fitna.[2]

    in my city all the Arab Brothers eat at KFC knowing its not halal, but when confronted they say its not haraam only makruh so its not good to have but dont call haraam something the likes of chicken. Im just left opened mouthed after their statement, its not good to generalise but its safe to say in my city most of the arabs have those words on their mouths.

    When i mention arab i mean (tunisian, morrocan, kuwaiti, egyptian)

    Halal means it was slaugtered with Allah's name called upon the animal.

    So you can't eat an animal that hasn't been slaughtered this way?

    Why not? And more importantly, lol, how can you even prove whether it's been done or not?

    You can eat seafood.

    And, you won't know if it's truly been slaughtered that way, but if you eat it by mistake, then you're not responsible for it. It was unintentional.
    There are usually halal meat shops or halal restaurant, so we know it's halal. And, a muslim would not fake something as being halal if it's not.

    Re: Would you like some Mcdonalds ?

    Salaam,
    I find the topic of McDonalds very confusing, because everyone is saying different things!
    So, I decided to email them myself and they replied:

    Thank you for your e-mail regarding McDonald’s cooking procedures and whether we include Halal products within the range.



    Although I can confirm that none of our products carry Halal certification, all of our products are cooked separately, beef patties are cooked on a griddle and our Filet, French Fries, Apple Pies and Vegetable Deluxe are cooked in vegetable oil using dedicated cooking vats. These vats are exclusively for the purpose of cooking a specific product and that product alone.



    Due to the order of rotation during the filtering of the vats, there is a possibility the100% vegetable oil used to cook the vegetable patty may come into contact with the 100% vegetable oil used to cook the chicken and/or fish products. Whilst every possible precaution is taken in order to prevent cross contamination during this filtering process, we cannot categorically state this would never occur.



    The French Fries, which have been approved by the Vegetarian Society, are cooked using different equipment and are entirely segregated from the other products; therefore this product is not affected.



    I hope that I have been able to reassure you of McDonald's cooking procedures, attention to detail and unequivocal dedication to offering only the highest quality products to our customers, at all times.



    Finally, thank you for taking the time and trouble to contact us on this subject.

    well not all muslim brothers and sisters go to eat haram food
    about the oil used, it is different to every mcdonalds as it depends how the person filters it
    i.e the mcds i workd in, i used to filter the fries station frst then the fish fryin station and then the rest as the oil used for these wud be contaminated wid the oil used for chicken

    Can I have a mcdonalds big mac?

    70% of people in the uk said they where christia on the census form

    {This day we have made lawful to you all types of good (food) and the food (slaughtered meat) which come to you from the people of the book (Jews & Christians) is lawful for you just like your food is lawful for them}?.

    Al Maaidah 5/5

    Al-Qaadhi Ibn Al-Arabee Al-Maalikee said in his book "Ahkaam Al-Qur?aan" regarding the explanation of this verse as occurs in its text:

    "this is a definitive proof that the game of the hunterand the food of those that were given The Book is from the "tayyibaat" (good things) which Allaah the most high has allowed; and it is halal in the absolute?I was asked regarding a Christian who twisted the neck of a chicken and then cooked it, as to whether it is to be eaten( from him,) and can it be taken as
    the food of the people of The Book?? so I said ?it can be eaten ? because it is his food and the food of his Priests and his Monks. Even if it be that this is not from the method of slaughtering which is carried out by us (the Muslims) ? however Allaah the most high has made it allowable for us to eat their food unrestrictedly, so all which they hold in their Religion to be halaal then it is halal for us except in that which Allaah has declared their lies regarding."

    Re: Can I have a mcdonalds big mac?

    another clarification

    for me it is just a christian country in the uk as christian lands during the time of the prophet, they still worship other than Allah, and the meat within the slaughter houses are bled and the throats slit

    so whatdya say, mcdonalds for lunch?

    Eating the Meat of Ahl Al-Kitaab (Jews Christians)
    Imaam Ibn Uthaymeen (Rahimahullaah)

    Q. Is it permissible to eat poultry which is sold in the markets on the
    basis that it is meat of the People of the Book...or is it impermissible on
    the basis that it is a carcass slaughtered by unknown means i.e. was it done
    by cutting off the head or electrocution or some such means... and are the
    Ahl-Kitaab today truly to be considered in this ruling [as those of the
    past]?

    A. Yes, eating the poultry is permissible because that which is slaughtered
    by the Ahl Al-Kitaab today is just as what was slaughtered by Ahl Al-Kitaab
    in the time of the Prophet (sallallaahu ưalayhi wa sallam). The Ahl Al-Kitaab are of the Kuffaar
    (disbelievers) whether they are in the time of the Prophet (saaws) or now.
    Allah says in His Noble Book They have certainly disbelieved who say that
    Verily Allah is Isa Ibn Maryam and the Messiah said "O Children of Israel
    worship Allah my Lord and your Lord Verily whosoever commits shirk
    (associates partners with Allah in any way) Allah has made the Paradise
    forbidden to him and his end will be the Hellfire and there will be no help
    to the Dhaalimeen. They have certainly disbelieved who say that Allah is the
    third of three and there is no deity except the single Deity and if they do
    not desist from what they are saying We will inflict upon those disbelievers
    a painful punishment.

    Allah also says in the same chapter: "Today I have made permissible for you
    that which is good and wholesome and the food of those who were sent the
    Scripture is permissible to you and your food is permissible to them."

    As far as the methodology of the slaughtering we do not inquire about the
    method because if an action has occurred min ahlihi [at the hands of those
    suited to perform such an act] the conditions surrounding that act are not
    asked about.

    We find in Saheeh Al-Bukhari: "It is related by Aisha (raa) that a group of
    people said to the Prophet (sallallaahu ưalayhi wa sallam) 'Some people came to us with some meat
    about which we didn't know whether the name of Allah was mentioned over or
    not' and he replied (saaws) Sammoo [Say the name of Allah] over it
    yourselves and then eat. She [Aisha - raa] said that these people had just
    recently been from the Kuffaar [i.e. just became Muslim and the question was
    not asked as to the method of slaughter].

    This rule therefore applies to the Jews and the Christians about whom we
    don't know whether or not they have mentioned Allah's name or not because
    their slaughtered meat is halal [permissible] to us.

    Q. Please clarify the fatwa - esteemed Sheikh - If a Muslim goes to the
    markets and eating places in a Christian land and purchases the lamb, beef,
    of chicken and does not ask about how it was slaughtered?

    A. Yes, he does not ask about the method of slaughter.

    Q. What if he is informed however that the meat has been stunned by electric
    shock, or has been choked or shot? What is the ruling for meat slaughtered
    like this? Is it considered a carcass? [Which is impermissible to eat]

    A. It is not permissible if it is known with certainty because it would be
    considered a carcass.

    Q. Can we understand from the hadith of Aisha (raa) which is related in the
    fatwa that the question which was posed by the people to the Messenger of
    Allah (saaws) was only in relation to whether Allah's name was mentioned
    over the animal being slaughtered and it was not about the actual method of
    slaughter?

    A. Yes, they did ask about the mentioning of the name of Allah and not the
    actual method of slaughtering and it is evident in the hadith that it is not
    necessary to ask about either.

    Q. Is it possible to say that if there are
    stores in a city where the Muslim lives and those stores carry meat
    slaughtered according to the Islamic method - even of it is more expensive -
    that it is not then permissible to buy the meat of the Christians?

    A. No it is not possible to say that because the slaughtered meat of the
    Christians and the Jews is halal. However whoever leaves it [doesn't eat it]
    out of a sense of piety [tawar'an], we see no fault upon him. [Tawar'a or
    wara' is when a person has such piety that they will avoid even that which
    is permissible to do what is even better from wanting to please Allah and
    also eliminating any possibility of doing something wrong].

    Q. One of the readers asks about a relation from Ali Ibn Abi Talib (raa) in
    which he reportedly said: "Do not eat the meat slaughtered by Bani Taglab
    because they adhere to Christianity by drink alcohol." Can this be then used
    as a proof considering the Christians of today, the majority of who drink
    alcohol , that it is not permissible to eat their slaughtered meat?

    A. I do not know the authenticity of this statement [from the Sahabah] and
    if it is authentic its meaning would be that they [Banu Taglab] were not
    actually on the religion of the Christians and therefore they would not fall
    under the ruling of permissibility of their slaughtered meat.

    Q. If it is known that some of the slaughterhouses in this country slaughter
    sheep and cattle along with swine is it permissible to eat that meat
    especially when the same instruments are used to slaughter both at the same
    time?

    A. In this case, if we know that the knives are used for both then the meat
    should be washed and it will be purified through washing.

    Q. Is it possible - esteemed Sheikh - for you to address us with a word to
    the Muslim in the Western countries about the obligation of staying far away
    from disobedience [to Allah and His Prophet (sallallaahu ưalayhi wa sallam)] and haram things and
    doubtful matters because we are aware of some of them being lax in relation
    to some major sins such as not praying or illicit sex or drinking alcohol
    yet he is distressed or makes complicated the eating of meat which is not
    slaughtered according to Islamic method?

    A. My advice to them is to have taqwa and fear Allah's punishment and to
    remember the Day of Meeting, a day which the excuses of those who wrong
    themselves will be of no avail. A day when the parent will not afford their
    offspring anything nor can the offspring do anything for the parent. A day
    when they will all be raised from their graves barefoot, and naked. We ask
    Allah for all guidance and success.

    Muhammad Saleh Al-Uthaimeen (rahimahullaah) 2/28/1414

    Re: Can I have a mcdonalds big mac?

    What percentage of the non-muslim butchers in U.K follow Christianity or Judaism and what percentage regard themselves as atheists?

    How do you define ahl al-kitaab in its strict interpretation and what percentage are adherents of this in the world?

    Re: Can I have a mcdonalds big mac?

    its best not to have mcdonalds big mac or any meat which is slaughtered by the Ahl Al-Kitaab because you can not be 100 percent sure that the meat which is which is slaughtered by the Ahl Al-Kitaab can be considered Halal.

    Meat of Ahlul-Kitaab (Jews & Christians):

    The opinion amongst those who consider commercially available meat from Western Supermarkets permissible to consume can be divided into two categories.

    Position of Hanbali Ulama of Saudi Arabia: In order for meat of Ahlul-Kitaab to be considered Halal, the following conditions have to be met:

    a) That the meat be slaughtered as a Muslim does it, but cutting the throat and oesophagus and letting the blood flow. If the animal is killed by strangling or electric shock or drowning in water, its meat is not permissible.

    b) No name other than that of Allah (SWT) should be mentioned over it, such as the name of the Messiah etc, because Allah (SWT) says (interpretation of the meaning): [6:121] “Eat not (O believers) of that (meat) on which Allah (SWT) ’s Name has not been pronounced (at the time of the slaughtering of the animal)”

    c) Meat must not be sacrificed by Ahlul-Kitaab for their religious festivals or in order to get closer to someone other than Allah (SWT) , such meat is rendered impermissible regardless of the method of slaughter or whether the name of the deity other then Allah (SWT) was mentioned or not.

    http://www.central-mosque.com/fiqh/kmeat1.htm

    http://www.islam-qa.com/en/ref/88206/meat

    “If one does not hear from a Christian or a Jew that a name other than Allah's such as that of Jesus or a saint, was mentioned at the time of slaughter, the meat he offers is halal. If, however, he says that a name other than Allah's has been mentioned, it is haram, according to the opinion of some jurists who argue that it falls under the heading of what has been dedicated to other than Allah. Some others hold the opinion that the food of the People of the Book has been permitted to us by Allah, Who is aware of what they say when slaughtering an animal.” (The Lawful and The Prohibited in Islam by Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, page 60)

    “...we know that imported meats, such as chicken and canned beef, originating with the People of the Book are halal for us, even though the animal may have been killed by means of electric shock or the like. As long as they consider it lawful in their religion, it is halal for us. This is the application of the above verse from Surah al-Maidah.” (Sheikh Qaradawi is referring to Quran 5:5) (The Lawful and The Prohibited in Islam by Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, page 62)

    The late scholars Syed Abul A'la Maududi and Al Phahim Jobe both argue that the meat must be slaughtered in accordance with Islamic guidelines.

    MEAT AND POULTRY SLAUGHTERED BY AHLUL-KITAB
    By Mufti Ebrahim Desai


    Question

    Why does the animal have to be slaughtered by a Muslim? Can’t we eat the meat of animals slaughtered by the people of the book (Jews and Christians)?


    Answer

    Allah Ta`ala says in the Noble Qurăn: 'Today I have made permissible for you pure things and the food of those who were given the Book (Ahlul-Kitab) is also Halal for you'. (Qurăn 5:4)

    Overtly the above Aayat reads that the Zabeeha of the Ahlul-Kitab is permissible, but the fundamental principle must be understood in order to understand the Qur’an i.e. 'One part of the Qur’an explains the other'. Therefore, this verse should be understood in the light of another verse relating to the same matter: 'Do not eat unless Allah's name has been taken and this (not taking Allah's name) practice is transgression' (Quran 6:121).

    The former verse explicitly states that the Zabeeha of the Ahlul-Kitab is permissible, while the latter prohibits eating meat upon which Allah’s name has not been taken. In the light of both these verses, it is understood that the Zabeeha of the Ahlul-kitab is permissible only if the name of Allah is taken at the time of slaughtering. The Ahlul-kitab used to take Allah's name when slaughtering an animal, therefore, their Zabeeha was also Halal for Muslims. It is for this same reason that an animal slaughtered by the Mushrikeen etc. is not permissible. The Ahlul-kitab of today are recognized more by name, less faith. There is no guarantee that they take the name of Allah/God when slaughtering an animal. Furthermore, they cannot be trusted anymore in matters pertaining to Halal/Haram.

    Since there is uncertainty in the above slaughter manner, the Jurists are unanimous that it is not permissible to consume meat which is doubtful. Only if there is certainty that the Ahlul-kitab read the 'Tasmiyah' i.e. take the name of God when slaughtering an animal will their meat be permissible. We suggest that the Muslims in the U.S.A. and U.K. slaughter the animals themselves. A committee should be appointed and look into ways to facilitate for Halal meat slaughtered by Muslims. This will make them independent from Christian/Jewish sources.

    Another proposition may be that the meat sold on the market is packed, sealed and stamped by a Muslim organisation consisting of reliable scholars and Úlama who have proper Islamic knowledge of the principles pertaining to
    Halal/Haram of the Shariáh.

    And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

    All meat slaughtered today is slaughtered the haram way except for kosher meats. Watch the documentary "from farm to fridge" on YouTube and you will see how the kuffar treat and slaughter their animals. So I have no doubt that eating their meat is haram.

    Re: Can I have a mcdonalds big mac?

    Are times that hard and food that scarce for us to even consider that as an option? :s
    قال بعض السلف :
    خلق الله الملائكة عقولاً بلا شهوة ، وخلق البهائم شهوة بلا عقول، وخلق ابن آدم وركب فيه العقل والشهوة ، فمن غلب عقله شهوته التحق بالملائكة ، ومن غلبت شهوته عقله التحق بالبهائم .
