Asalamalaikum. I live in US but I'll be going on an educational trip to Argentina and Chile for 2 weeks and over there I'll be with my College peers and professors to even go to restaurants with them. I may not get halal food over there and also hardly any vegetarian. So, I'm wondering is it allowed for me on the tour to eat non-halal way slaughtered chicken? I've seen Muslims in US eating non-halal way slaughtered chicken by simply saying Bismillah (I know this is not allowed) But is it allowed on a trip? Thank you

    Brother you’ve said yourself that it’s not allowed so why would there be an exception for a trip?

  • Salam and welcome to IslamSE the Q&A site about Islam. To learn more about our site and model consider taking our 2 minutes tour and checking our help center. Exceptions require dire need, i.e. one would die if not doing it. Further it is mainly halal to eat from the food of the people of the book.

No you can’t Allah clearly said in quran

“And do not eat that upon which the name of Allah has not been mentioned,for indeed it is a grave disobedience” (6:121)

  • This really needs some elaboration, see How to Answer.
