Muslims not prepared to declare cloning ‘halal’

Muslims not prepared to declare cloning ‘halal’

The issue of cloning certainly goes well beyond whether or not an animal is stunned before Halal slaughter and the method used in the slaughtering of it. This also comes under the category of ‘ethical’ which is also now a much broader issue with the production of food today. As this question becomes better researched from a Halal perspective perhaps the wisdom of the Islamic shariah will bring clarity on this for everyone questioning whether it is ethical to produce cloned animals for human consumption. Perhaps this is an issue to be addressed to the Shariah scholars and scientists at the upcoming International Halal Market Conference being held on the 16-17 August in Brunei Darussalam.

Muslim Canadian Congress wants the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. to
stop a study considering the introduction of so-called “Islamic
banking” to Canada.” How ‘Halal’ is Islamic banking? The idea of honest interest free banking for everyone is perhaps a study the Muslim Canadian Congress should look into further for the benefit of everyone. If they look into the Islamic banking in SE Asia they will find there is a much higher percentage of customers that are non-Muslim who have seen the benefits are more favourable for them.

Globalising Halal Standards: Issues and Challenges

The
definitions of Halal, while generally agreed upon by Muslims, display
significant gaps when it comes to their application in the industry.
Due to differing Halal standards not only between countries but also
within each individual country (following the presence of various Halal
authorities), confusion, misunderstanding and even abuse in the Halal
audit and certification process have occurred. As a result, supply
chains have been broken whilst artificial shortages of raw material
have emerged as a result of disunity between Halal certification bodies.
