Mufti Siraj Desai
Status of Rainbow Chickens
Q: I saw on Sanha’s website that you (Mufti Siraj Desai) were a guest speaker once at their AGM. I would like to know if it is possible for you to inform me on the status of their Rainbow chicken certification. Are these allegations, that the chicken is not halaal just rumors, or is it possible that there could be some truth to the allegations?
A: The Rainbow chickens that Sanha certifies are Halaal. They have a team of Ulama who do inspection of the plant where these chickens are slaughtered. However, it is always better to eat freshly slaughtered chickens from people who you are certain will slaughter according to Shari’ah.
And Allah knows best
