Anyone can make a claim that a food is halaal. There are food and imported meat that are certified halaal. But, these are imported from Muslim minority countries (like imported chicken from Brazil). So is such a certification sufficient? If not, what are the other requirements that are necessary to establish the halal status of a food, if one doesn't witness the slaughter?

  • Unfortunately there isn't really a way especially is the blood is drained properly. If something is labelled as halal and you eat it, then eat it with the intention that it is halal. If it turns out that the meat was infact haram, then you are not at fault as Allah knows you could only rely on the label and what you had been told. Therefore the one selling the product to you will be at fault as they lied about the product to you. However if you have doubt for whatever reason then it is best to avoid that particular product and purchase the product from another supplier. – Zohal Sep 5 '18 at 13:09
