6 thoughts on “Some Swedish schools reject halal food.

  1. This is not a real issue, it is just Muzzers trying to flex their political muscle and, the sad thing is, they will probably win. Their children could just eat vegetarian at school and eat meat with their evening meal at home. If my children’s school provided Halal meat, I would kick up a stink. Why should natives make way for minorities?

  2. With all due respect, Catherine, how would you know if your children’s school serves halal meat? Nothing requires meat manufacturers, sellers, or food-service establishments to disclose whether halal practices were used at the time of the animal’s slaughter. If the best deal your school district could get on turkey for luncheon meat turned out to be a halal vendor, would they inform students and their parents?

  3. Muslims are allowed to eat the food people of the book prepare. Al Qaradawi himself wrote this in his book “”Lawful and Prohibited in Islam”. So all they warn ist trouble.

    “Animals Slaughtered by the People of the Book

    We have seen that Islam emphasizes that the animal must be slaughtered in a prescribed manner. The polytheists of Arabia and other nations had made animal sacrifice an act of worship, or rather an integral part of their belief system and a pillar of their religion, seeking to propitiate their deities by sacrificing animals either at their special altars or by mentioning their names over them. Islam abolished these pagan rites and ordained that no name except that of Allah be mentioned while slaughtering, and it prohibited what was sacrificed at an altar or dedicated to anyone other than Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala.

    Now although the People of the Book—the Jews and Christians —are essentially believers in one God, some Muslims nevertheless supposed that in matters related to food the People of the Book were to be treated in the same manner as idolaters. Thereupon Allah Ta’ala granted special permission to Muslims in the matter of eating with the People of the Book and in the matter of marriage to their women. In Surah al-Maidah, the last surah of the Qur’an to be revealed, Allah says, Today whatever is good is made lawful to you. And the food of those who were given the Scripture (before you) is permitted to you and your food is permitted to them…. (5:6 (5))

    The meaning of these verses is, in brief, that from this day forward all good, pure, and wholesome things are permitted to you Muslims; consequently, there can be no more bahirah, saibah, wasilah, or ham. Since Allah did not prohibit it, the food of the Jews and the Christians is permitted to you on the basis of the original permissibility of things, and likewise you can share your food with them. Accordingly, you can eat the flesh of the animals they have slaughtered or hunted, and they can eat what you have slaughtered or hunted.
