Is it okay for Muslims to eat at KFC restaurants?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Darulifta-Deoband.com
Dear Janab, Assalamualaikum, As you aware that there is lot of resturant,hotels etc who served chiken & mutton dishes,claiming that they are using HALAL chicken or Mutton. Just take an example,,KFC is world famous reataurant,some branches in delhi & other metro cities,who usually serve chicken dishes,,once,I visited the restaurant in Cannaught Place. Before having some chicken item,I asked the manager about the chicken,what type of the chicken they are using in the restaurant ??? He confirmed me that we are using only HALAL chicken in their stores in india. & also got a certificate from Jama masjid stating that KFC use only HALAL chicken in their stores in india. Now,Some days back,I visited their UK site, i.e. http://www.kfc.co.uk/faqs.aspx ,,on this link,there is question that chicken used i KFC is HALAL or not…then answer as mentioned on site is (Unfortunately we currently do not use Halal chicken in any of our stores.). Janab,I want to confirm that how is to eat at KFC restaurant.is it ok ?? or we,muslim community, have to fully avoid these restaurants??


(Fatwa: 934/854=L/1429)

The best and safest way for Muslims is to avoid eating meat in those restaurants. However, if one is sure about a restaurant that it presents halal meat or its owner is Muslim who certifies that the meat was halal then it is allowable to eat it.

Allah (Subhana Wa Ta’ala) knows Best
