Kaula Lumpur:
Malaysian Deputy Minister and in-charge of Islamic affairs, Dr Asyraf Wajdi Dusuki said that Muslims care more about the status of halal food when compared to their source of income.

“The concern over halal food and halal labels is paramount. But the similar concerns may not be true when it comes to where the money comes from to buy that halal food,” Dusuki said in his address, during a seminar on Islamic financial institutions and charity, reported Malay Mail Online.

The money they receive to buy that food, even if coming from usury, interest, corruption, they don’t care. This is something very much the reality in our society today, he stated.

Dusuki said when it comes to consuming meat, the public are very concerned about ensuring that the slaughter is Shariah compliant, but not as much as the money involved in the purchase.

Out of several consequences of consuming haraam wealth, one is; when someone consumes it, their du’aa’s don’t get answered.

The minister in-charge of Islamic affairs said the term “halal beer” went against Malaysia’s halal certification.

Some fast food restaurants in Malaysia use non-pork alternatives for ham and bacon, such as turkey ham and beef bacon.

According to state news agency Bernama, the minister in charge of Islamic affairs said the term “halal beer” went against the manual procedure for Malaysia’s halal certification.

Under the Trade Descriptions (Certification and Marking of Halal) Order 2011, only the federal Islamic Development Department — better known by its Malay abbreviation, Jakim — and state Islamic departments and councils can issue halal certification.
