MILESTONES IN HALAL CERTIFICATION

Dr.Hüseyin Kâmi BÜYÜKÖZER

﴿قُلْ هَلْ يَسْتَوِي الَّذِينَ يَعْلَمُونَ وَالَّذِينَ لا يَعْلَمُونَ﴾

Are those who know equal with those who know not?

We should never forget this Quranic order and we should work only with accurate information and should make no compromises.

﴿وَأَنتُمُ الأَعْلَوْنَ إِن كُنتُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ﴾

for ye must gain mastery if ye are true in Faith.

“For ye must gain mastery if ye are true in Faith.” for ye must gain mastery if ye are true in Faith.

We should work without fear, because we believe in Allah’s promise.

﴿وَاعْتَصِمُواْ بِحَبْلِ اللّهِ جَمِيعاً وَلاَ تَفَرَّقُواْ﴾

all together by the rope which Allah (stretches out for you), and be not divided among yourselves;

There is Allah’s Mercy in congregation (Jamaah). So we have to work hard to increase our Jamaah.

يَـٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلنَّاسُ كُلُواْ مِمَّا فِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ حَلَـٰلاً۬ طَيِّبً۬

O mankind! Eat of that which is lawful and wholesome in the earth

Halal Living is a faith-related issue of a Muslim.

﴿وَاشْكُرُواْ لِلّهِ إِن كُنتُمْ إِيَّاهُ تَعْبُدُونَ﴾

and render thanks to Allah if it is (indeed) He Whom ye worship.

Halal Certification must only be made in the name of Allah.

We should never forget that the penalty for betrayal to Allah for the greed of money is extremely big.

Halal Certification must respect all different observances of Sects (Mazhabs).

Rulings of notable Islamic mazhabs according to Fiqh have been carefully and diligently protected through centuries. It is our duty to continue this diversity in our Halal certification works.

International companies must be certified if they agree to open their facilities to certification.

We should take into consideration that the improper applications so far have caused and resulted in confusions and contamination of practices in the minds of Muslims in a global scale.

All certification bodies should come together under one roof on a global scale and all members of this organization should have one single standard. This organization should have accreditation and inspection authority. It should have its own budget and have power to enforce members to apply their standard.

Main body should be governed by a committee that will come to power by elections.

This main body should be independent of member countries’ policies.

Main Body should be internationally recognized and respected.

We should never forget that a real global Halal Certification will cause the Islamic World to become independent, honourable and strong.

Affairs (maslahat) of Muslims must be considered in Halal Certification.

Members should accredit each other under the supervision of council presidency.

﴿جَاءَ الحَقُّ وَزَهَقَ البَاطِلُ إِنَّ البَاطِلَ كَانَ زَهُوقاً﴾

Truth has (now) arrived, and Falsehood perished: for Falsehood is (by its nature) bound to perish.”

We must be careful that we are on true and right way. If we believe that we are on Haq way.That time, (Batıl) will go away of course

THE END REMARK WİTH A HADİTH

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 3.438 (volume 34 sales and trade ) Narrated byJabir bin Abdullah I heard Allah’s Apostle, in the year of the Conquest of Mecca, saying, “Allah and His Apostle made illegal the trade of alcohol, dead animals, pigs and idols.” The people asked, “O Allah’s Apostle! What about the fat of dead animals, for it was used for greasing the boats and the hides; and people use it for lights?” He said, “No, it is illegal.” Allah’s Apostle further said, “May Allah curse the Jews, for Allah made the fat (of animals) illegal for them, yet they melted the fat and sold it and ate its price.”

We should always remember that it is a big betrayal to trespass borders of Allah (CC) if we allow growing the greed for  the certification fee.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH
