  • The main message of the conference is to stop the use of all types of Stunning before or after slaughtering, to stop the use of all types of Mechanical slaughtering, actual slaughtering done by only Muslim Slaughter men, and for all food, medicine, cosmetics, skin and hair care items produced for Muslim consumers worldwide no alcohol of any concentration is being used in the production of any of the ingredients, no Najis (religiously non-pure) ingredients of any source is being used, enzymes must be of Halal sources, and when fats, proteins, or food additives are being used they must be of 100% pure vegetable sources. In addition, all allowed eating birds and allowed eating animals that are distant for Halal Slaughtering should have been only fed a feed of only vegetable sources. Finally, not to verdict ingredients of Haram origins as Halal based on “intentional change” i.e. “Doubtful Istihala” whether partial or 100% chemical change. A Halal certificate from an approved Muslim third party is a must.

Saying only Muslim Slaughter men to avoid controversies of fatwa among Muslims.

From Muslim World League or World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY).

  • Since there is no official Halal laws or standards calls for these stringent minimum Halal requirements, and until an official adoption for these minimal Halal requirements code, I will call this code “The Kuwait Halal Code”. And if the Halal food is of organic status then the code will be called “The Uwait Halal Organic Code”.
