Halal KFC in London

KFC is doing a halal trial in London!

Check out the KFC website for details

Sadly none of those stores are in Central London though - the closest to Central London is probably the Bethnal Green one.

  1. SubhanAllah, this machine slaughtered chicken is not Halal. Despite what it says on the HFA website according to the consensus of Islamic Scholars machine slaughter renders the meat Haram. They are not a reputable company in the eyes of the Shariah

    HFA is a self-certifying man who's interested in profits.Pre-stunned and machine slaughtered. Problem is the bird may die through the water bath stunning stage, in the UK the machine can not be switched off to see if the bird recovers...so it's diff to check if the bird is still alive prior to the slaughter stage...if dead...haraam. Stage 2 the slaughter, the lines go very fast, the tasmiya, has to be said at the time of slaughter. Sometimes it's not said as the two men if present chat amongst themselves, blades with the prayer is used, the blessed blade and sometimes a tape is playing. This renders the end product haraam. Errors are created. There's lots of things labelled halal. It's high time these bogus claims be sorted, or labelling so the consumer knows what they may be purchasing. The like of MCB might be a good start.

    Also, ask for proof of where and what methodology is used. Gone are the days when you can trust your muslim butcher or trader...some are god fearing the majority interested in money, unfort.

    HFA, is no authority for sure....if you ask the owner who is the ulima supporting him...he's very evasive....that says it all for me. Bottom line is if you practise Islam...watch out for chicken products as they are the worst contenders for likely to be doubtful/haraam.

  6. Halal KFC is hand-slaughtered, not machine slaughtered. Please refrain from illusions (maybe this; maybe that). So, it is Halal. fakuluh haneeam mareea

    1. 9. Is KFC's halal chicken stunned before slaughter?

      Yes, due to our strict animal welfare standards, we insist that all our poultry is stunned before slaughter. Our halal chicken has been accredited by the Halal Food Authority, one of the most widely recognised bodies in the UK and overseas. It allows the use of a technique called 'stun-to-stun' - a pain free process that makes the animal insensible to pain and suffering. A verse is also recited from the Qu'ran at the point of slaughter by an appropriate person and the poultry will not come into contact with non-halal meat at any point in the supply chain.

      Gives me doubts.

  8. PLEASE be aware of what you eat. All i ask is for you to look at our holy scriptures - stunned meat is HARAAM. Plz look at the OFFICIAL KFC website , esp no 6 of Q&A. All i can say is read the above remarks about HFA. I would trust HMC anyday. Below is the KFC link.

  9. I've double-checked HFA halal criterion which clearly states use of unstunned meat. A person who just listens to rumours (such as HFA is not halal) and spreads them is a liar.

    Have you seen HFA slaughtering chickens with your own eyes? PLease stop accusing them. Maybe it's just propaganda . Brothers and sisters! Have no fear please and feel free to go to halal KFC outlets and be assured that we are not going to just any KFC; it's halal outlet we're going to. So, in'sha Allah we won't be asked on the Day of Judgment.

  10. First of all salam to all
    I want to say that in SAUDIA ARABIA chicken's are slaughterd buy machine's so thats means they are eating haram chicken from long time.
    Can you tell me that if you do takbeer and right way of slaghuter on PIG thats gona be a HALLAL so every body say here no because ALLAH the almighty already said us which things are HALLAL.
    And HALAL is arabic word which means permitted.
    So just check chicken are any meat(those are permitted/HALLAL)are you eating slaughtered and blood is drained and not be the jerk and not read the name of any body Instead of ALLAH(takbeer) If takbeer is not done at the moment of Slaugter so read it when u are going to eat.

  15. Brothers and Sisters, HFA approve of stunning and mechanised slaughter. Both of which do not comply with the simple requirements set out by Allah SWT. Mechanised blades cut on average 10,000 chickens per hour. How is a Muslim to recite the Tasimayah this many times over the birds? There are also statistics that suggest 1 third of chickens die after stunning and there is no way that it is checked which ones are unconscious and which are dead. Allah knows best. I wish we could stop arguing between ourselves and unite on what we put in our bodies.

  16. Salaam to all. Below is a reply from HFA regarding my query which is an eye-opener for those who are against HFA.


    "Your yesterday’s email refers.



    HFA is always committed to ensure that 3 basic criteria of halal slaughtering are met, that are;

    Animal/bird should not die prior to slaughter,

    All the flowing blood is drained out, and;

    Muslim should do the rendition.



    These criteria are met in both manual and mechanical slaughter as chickens are stunned to immobilize only (thus, alive before slaughter) and Muslims are present on slaughtering line for rendition. Slaughterhouses and KFC stores are regularly audited to ensure full compliance.

    Few of my friends don't rely on HFA's certified products, as they believe that HFA allows stunned meat to be Halal and not every animal is slaughtered in Islamic way; they say that only the first animal is slaughtered Islamically but the rest is dealth with mechanically. They say that HMC is the only thing reliable. Is that true? They also forbid me to go to halal KFC outlets because they are certified by HFA. Please guide.

    JazakAllah khairan.

    Wassalam.
