Title: Are Qualiko Chickens halal?

Question

as salaam mu alikum, is qualiko chicken halal?

 

firstly i want to thank on this extremelly helpfull site

 

i am studying for a degree in kiev which is a city in the ukraine, can you please tell me if this chicken that comes from a company called QUALIKO is halal, as there is a certificate on the website and on the package there are countless halal stamps, please can you help me?

 

this is the website http://www.qualiko.ua   

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

The website in reference has a video which shows how the chickens are cut.

We observed in the video that the chickens are cut using machines. This slaughtering method is incompatible with Sharῑ’ah.[1]

We have contacted the company and have not yet received a response. Accordingly, we would advise that you refrain from eating Qualiko chicken.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
