Consuming Halaal

Q: I am working away from home and staying in camp accommodation. I asked and confirmed from the manager of the mess about the meat. He said everything is halal.This camp is in Australia. Am I allowed to eat the meat?


A: Halaal and haraam revolve around trust and confidence. If you have so much of confidence in this person that you are absolutely sure that he is going to be absolutely certain in feeding you with that which is halaal then you may eat, provided the person who is telling you is a Muslim and committed to his deen.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
