CLOSING STATEMENT OF THE SPECIAL MEETING AGAINST NON MUSLIM  INTERFERENCE TO HALAL ISSUES

 

HELD IN ISTANBUL ON THE 13th &14th JUNE 2015

 

Whereas:

   Halal is a divine obligation based on Qur’an and Prophetic teachings.

   The distinctive identity and characteristics of a Muslim outlined in Prophetic tradition is adherence to the precepts of Halal

    The interpretation, standardization, regulation, governance and application of Halal is regarded as an act of worship.

     All acts of worship are predicated on faith and belief

     Freedom of thought, conscience and freedom of religion are moral norms granted by human rights principles.

     Standardization Authorities of some countries and Unions have embarked on developing standards for Halal without regard to the Islamic Religious Sanctity of the entire Halal certification processes.

     They have established technical committees for the development of the said standard in total disregard to the religious concerns being safeguarded by Recognized Halal certification and accreditation authorities worldwide.

 

Now therefore:

We, as concerned Muslims representing Halal Certification Bodies, Muslim Consumers and Religious Non-Governmental Organizations, Declare that:

*  The religious affairs of a faith group vests exclusively with the adherents of that particular faith community

*  The crafting of Halal standards requires inter alia the skills of qualified Muslim theologians who possess in-depth knowledge of Islamic Law, which is based on Qur’an, Sunnah, Ijma and Qiyas

*  Halal (Lawful) and Haram (Unlawful) are Islamic precepts that govern the entire life of a Muslim and are accordingly regulated by a deeply spiritual commitment

*  The verification and administration of Halal cannot be isolated from the notion of worship and therefore should not be reduced to a matter of mere technical compliance.

  Halal Certification by non-Muslim entities is deemed null and void in terms of Islamic Law

*   Intervention by organs of a Secular or Non-Muslim State in the religious affairs of the Muslim community is an infringement of its religious liberties, freedom and consumer rights

*   Initiatives by Muslim governments to drag non-Muslim entities into Halal for any reason is unacceptable.

 

*  We will not accept the legitimacy and validity of any certification or citation aimed at the regulation of Halal by non-Muslims

*  We remind that Halal is a pure Islamic term and since we will never accept praying behind a non-Muslim,   we  will  not  accept  Non-Muslims’  audits,  inspections,  testimonies, accreditations and certification pertaining to Halal and such certification documents that might be issued by non- Muslim entities will be rejected.

*  We will establish a committee with representatives from Islamic NGOs and HCBs. This committee will address the Islamic organizations and Halal Certification Bodies which have not attended the conference with the aim of reviewing and reconsidering their position in order to speak with one voice against the interference of non-Muslims in Islamic affairs and to avoid discrepancies between Muslim Stakeholders.

*  We will embark on a mass awareness program alerting Muslim communities to the gross violation of their religious observances.

*  We also remind that we and the history will not forget the persons or entities who help the non-Muslims in their interventions to Islamic matters.
