Alhamdulillah, Halal Consultations was established to broaden and magnify the significance of compliance of shari’ah in every issue and aspect of a Muslims’ worldly life. For example, birth death and marriages, inheritance, Halal foods, intensive farming and usage of science and technology in procurement of Halal sustenance and nourishment. Our panel of religious and other expertise would do cognitive analytical deliberations writing and speeches on above topics and more, with the exception of finances.
Where necessary we are carrying out, by popular demand, accreditation of Halal meat, poultry and foodstuffs with contractual audits, inspections and checking the suitability of the premises for the required purposes prior to issuing time-controlled status and validity certificates. In food processing there are set of stringent checks on ingredients, additives, quality management systems, production and packaging.
We envisage that Muslims should always take advantage of the science and technology in many a procurement and accomplishment in necessities of daily life; as long as sciences remain subservient to the Islamic tenets and ethos.
These particular principles and axiom reflect in our modus operandi, criteria and Standards of Halal accreditation of meat, poultry and foods. Our guidelines are to accept poultry and fish from intensive farming for human consumption and to use slight electrical stunning at poultry slaughtering point, with the proviso that birds do not die prior to slaughtering. Whilst fixed blade machine slaughtering in poultry slaughter houses is approved; we ensure that there are Licensed Muslim slaughterers at the slaughtering stations doing the rendition of Shahadah nearest to the parity of the speed of the slaughtering line.
For ovine slaughtering minuscule pre- electrical stunning is accepted, but for bovine slaughtering, captive bolt is not allowed.
Masood Khawaja, apart from being in the food trade for around forty years, was for nearly a score of years president and chief executive officer of a pioneering organisation engaged in endorsing Halal meat, poultry and foodstuffs nationally internationally.
“They ask you of what is lawful to them (as food). Say: lawful unto you are (all) things good and pure: and what you have taught your trained hunting animals (to catch) in the manner directed to you by Allah. Eat what they catch for you, but pronounce the name of Allah over it: and fear Allah. for Allah is swift in taking account.” (Qur’an 5:4)
“Do not eat anything over which the name of Allah has not been mentioned. To do so is abomination. The Satans inspire their friends to dispute with you. If you obeyed them, you would then be idolaters.” (Qur’an 6:121) read more

“Prohibitted for you is the dead (الْمَيْتَة), blood (وَالدَّم), meat of swine (وَلَحْمُ الْخِنْـزِير), what has been offered to anyone other than Allah (وَمَا أُهِلَّ لِغَيْرِ اللَّهِ بِه); and that which is strangled (وَالْمُنْخَنِقَة), that which has been beaten to death (وَالْمَوْقُوذَة), that which had a fatal fall (وَالْمُتَرَدِّيَة), that which is gored by horns (وَالنَّطِيحَة), that which a beast of pray has eaten (وَمَا أَكَلَ السَّبُع), except for what you slaughter yourselves, [forbidden also] what is sacrificed on alters (مَا ذُبِحَ عَلَى النُّصُب), and what you allocate by divining arrows (gambling) (وَأَنْ تَسْتَقْسِمُوا بِالأَزْلام) – that is abomination for you. Today, those who disbelieved have become hopeless with regards to your religion so do not fear them, but fear Me.” (Qur’an 5:3)
O you mankind! Eat of what is on earth, Lawful and good; and do not follow the footsteps of the devil, for he is to you an avowed enemy.
