Recently a lot of attention fell on Spar branded products. Since the Spar website seemingly indicated that most of the Spar branded products were halaal a lot of people was very angry with Spar. The reason for this was that people were buying Spar branded products for the simple reason that it was not halaal certified. With this discovery on their website many felt deceived by Spar. After a lot of reaction from people Spar contacted us to clarify this. It was explained that they do not pay any halaal certification on any of their products. Our concern was if they could assure us that the products are not certified by the producers of these products that Spar just added their label too. After some talk with the marketing director of Spar (Mike Prentice)he said that he would have to find that out from their suppliers. The problem with products being halaal certified is that a royalty was already paid to the halaal certifying bodies which is in turn added to the cost of the product and then when Spar would buy those products the halaal cost would be covered without Spar's knowledge. Eventually the consumer cover the cost. Spar could be a victim in this as much as the Christian consumer if these companies are in fact halaal certified. A lot of angry words went in Spar's direction the last few days, but Mike said that he would get to the bottom of it for us and inform us if any of the products are in fact halaal certified. We would like to thank Spar for doing this and we hope to hear from Spar soon.
The company "KAROO-OCHSE" has dropped its Halaal certification. Please visit them and support them at: http://www.karoo-ochse.co.za/
This short video is a must watch! Since the halaal issue is a global one or rather one the "Christian\Western world faces we hear this testimony from an Australian man. This video is an extract from a longer one, but I took this short clip from it. To watch the full one visit the link below.http://islam4infidels.com/proof-halal-funds-terrorism/
We are glad to announce a new member to Christian Friendly Products. Adamele Hoender will be carrying the CFP logo now. They are situated in Riverdal in the Western Cape and we hope to see them grow so that we can see their products countrywide. Please look out for their label or our logo on their Chicken products and support them.
For those who are still not convinced and want that proof that halaal certifying bodies is all for the Islamizing of countries it is worth while to read what they post themselves on their websites as with the link below.
"The MJC is divided into various divisions and departments, namely, Administration, Arbitration/Mediation, Da’wah (Da‘wah also transliterated daawa(h); Arabic: دعوة "invitation" means the proselytizing or preaching of Islam(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dawah)
, Education, Fataawa, Finance, Halaal Certification & Monitoring, Muslim Personal Law, Presidency,Secretariat and Social Services"
Note that they are all for Da'wah. So, by buying these products we are the financial supporters of loads of Islamic missionaries in South Africa and as they also mention across the borders of SA. As believers in Christ we should be doing the opposite. Go out into the world and proclaim the Gospel of Christ it is said. Not that of islam.
If You Buy Halal, You Are Indirectly Financing Terrorism Via Zakat
It is unlikely that anyone else will inform you about this…
Islamic law requires a 2.5% tax called zakat which is imposed on income and accumulated wealth of all devout Muslims.
ie. the muslims that are involved in the halal industry- the imams, slaughtermen, workers, business & shop owners etc.
Halal certification is done on a fee for service basis, with the fees varying with the scope and scale of the services.
Certification is provided by Islamic organizations, and would not be halal if the required zakat was not paid on the fees.
What you may not know is that there are eight classes of zakat recipients, each of which gets a 1/8 share of the gross.
One of those classifications is fighters in Allah’s cause aka Mudihideen, aka terrorists.
When you purchase a product which is certified Halal, you are indirectly contributing to terrorism.
I quote from Reliance of the Traveller, the Shari’ah handbook of the majority Sunni sect of Islam.
h8.7: The Eight Categories of Recipients
It is obligatory to distribute one’s zakat among eight categories of recipients (O: meaning that zakat goes to none besides them), one-eighth of the zakat to each category. (n: In the Hanafi school, it is valid for the giver to distribute his zakat to all of the categories, some of them, or to confine himself to just one of them (al-Lubab fi sharh al-Kitab(y88), 1.155). )
h8.17: Those Fighting for Allah
The seventh category is those fighting for Allah, meaning people engaged in Islamic military operations for whom no salary has been allotted in the army roster, but who are volunteers for jihad without remuneration.
They are given enough to suffice them for the operation, even if affluent; of weapons, mounts, clothing, and expenses for the duration of the journey, round trip, and the time they spend there, even if prolonged.
Though nothing has been mentioned here of the expense involved in supporting such people’s families during this period, it seems clear that they should also be given it.
