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.
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.
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.
